Install browser-ng for QtWebEngine goodness
@doniks did you download that package and installed it using only your device? It's comfier to use the computer, you know in which directory you're downloading the file and you don't need to rename it
Well, sure, though, in an ideal world, I'd like it to be really comfy to download files on the device ... but that's a separate issue ... speaking of which, it seems to be impossible to download that click package in the new browser as well

@doniks I'll try it later, the new OTA removed the browser as expected.
@doniks I will give it a try, I am having fun downloading it to the downloads folder,then when i try to install its not there ?
i have been using UT tweak tool, damn clever stuff
E: You don`t have enough free space in /var/cache/apt/archives/.
this is on my m10 fhd an original ubuntu, try on my pro 5 now.
Pro5 didn`t work ,the download shows in the Browser Downloads but not in the phablet Downloads
bit late on Sunday for me now ..later
@advocatux Funny. I had two OTA updates since I first installed the browser and it still works. That is click is obviously still there but I didn't have to reinstall the deb packages either. So maybe those dependencies landed in the system base already? ( haven't checked though)
@marathon2422 Mhmm you could try to enlarge your root partition a bit by cloning this to your device: https://github.com/timsueberkrueb/plasma-phone-dev-setup. If I remember it right you have to adjust the size you want your root partition to have afterwards in
usr/bin/resize-root-partitionand execute it. Now the usual disclaimer should follow... Thanks to @TimSueberkrueb for having this on his git account!
Hey Thanks ,I shall do some studying.
I hope someone has figured a way to work this into the upgrade from 15.04 to 16.04 on the Pro 5
@zubozrout for me the same. I do some OTA's and the browser is still working without reinstall the deb packages.
3. seem to be unable to set a bookmark
4. unable to search from URL bar

@zubozrout yes, after the last OTA I have the browser running without reinstalling. Funny.
So it seems everything needed is there and the re-scanning after rebooting catches the app.

Hi everybody.., I've tried the new browser and itś working in general well...For any reason I can't to view netflish vids...and other problem it's with the keyboard dimension, full all screen.
Good job guys.
Home Assistant works with Browser Next, horray! However, I still get browser not supported by Google+.
There are some other issues too, such as that the browser appears to have no memory. I can set a bookmark in one session, but as soon as I restart the browser it is gone. Same with browsing history, it always opens with a new window and only the DuckDuckGo search tab open.
Also, while still mobile friendly, the UI is tinier than on the default web browser. Not a huge problem and sometimes an advantage I guess.
I will post some issues on github as I test it further.
Now, all I need is a way to utilize Browser Next in webapps and I will be all set.
@tomoqv Good to hear. Basically this is work in progress, so expect updates now and then. Earliest possible release is OTA-5.
Any chance it will be possible to create web apps based on Browser Next before OTA-5?
@tomoqv Probably we need to test it, so yes. But no ETA right now. I dont even know the internals ob the web app container. But in theory it must be easy
How do I make it default browser?? when an app wants To launch one?
@doniks You cannot do this alone, it will be later registered as proper URL handler. Good point, currently UT misses user selectable default handlers
You cannot do this alone
How dare you
Of course I can.
cd ~/.cache/url-dispatcher sqlite3 urls-1.db .tables .headers on select * from configfiles; delete from configfiles where name='the/one/for/the/old/browser';
Maybe I cannot go back, because I didn't take a backup, but that's another story.
