Update 27.04.2013

This thread won't be updated anymore. Go on in each owns thread:

QmlMozbrowser for harmattan (N9 / N950)

Alopex for fremantle (N900)

cutefox for MER (Nemo or SailfishOS based devices) (no own thread yet)





All below is OLD information and shouldn't be used anymore.

Update 23.02.2013
Coderus released a new pre-alpha version for harmattan. Also a new Youtube video.


Fremantle version done by user qwazix is just a QML UI preview based on QT Webkit, but will be soon integrated with embedlite (hopefully).

Youtube demonstration
Early development version

He wrote some patches and started a WIKI entry, where he explains how to build and start it. He even points to the place of the DEB file and build instructions.

Update: Description from Romaxa:

Fast and responsive browser using Multiprocess/Multithreaded Qt embedding API
https://wiki.mozilla.org/Embedding/IPCLiteAPI

IPC Lite API provide platform independent mozilla embedding API's, here is the test browser using that API.
60FPS scrolling/zooming, WebGL, 30FPS HTML5 webm,ogg,flash video rendering, fast CSS3 animations, 60FPS Fixed positioned elements and iframes scrolling.
All Hardware accelerated with EGL rendering backend.
Fast startup, page load, no XUL UI, Qt/QML..
On last video part of demo of browser with Multithreaded compositing (single process) example.
Binary build available here: http://romaxa.info/fennec/IPCEmbeddi...36-1_armel.deb
MOZ_ACCELERATED=1 ./qtMozQmlEmbed -url google.com

Update:
Removed my old description where I tried to get it running, as I have it running now with Romaxas lates update from 28th July 2012.

It's so much more easy now:

- download and install these .deb files from http://romaxa.info/fennec/IPCEmbedding/
libqmozembed_0.6.14_armel.deb
xulrunner_16.0a1-99370.336-1_armel.deb
- open terminal and enter these commands:
cd /opt/xulrunner/lib/xulrunner-17.0a1
MOZ_ACCELERATED=1 ./qtMozQmlEmbed -url google.com
(or any other URL)


Romaxa posted his results on his blog and published a Youtube Video! Awesome stuff so far, hell it is fast!

There is no checkerboarding while scrolling/zooming and it's smooth as butter. There is a basic UI for navigating/refreshing and entering an URL. Native VKB works there. Although it's not possible yet to interact with the content (like clicking a link).

Have you tried starting it without devel-su? I don't think you should run Fennec as root, and it's quite possible that root can't connect to the display (as it shouldn't).

I'm giving it another try and will update 1st post if I have success.


Edit:
Yeah it works and hell it's promising! engadget website (not the mobile version) is so smooth and fast on it. There is no way yet to interact with the website (for example no way to click a link), but it has a basic UI for back/forward, reload and entering an URL (with native VKB).

No need for nightly fennec.

You can't start it as root user, try it as normal user.
