Subject [jira] [Commented] (COR-10) Port to linux (using webkit and Firefox)
Date Sun, 18 Jan 2015 16:57:34 GMT


Dennis E. Hamilton commented on COR-10:

OK, that helps a lot.

I don't know what it means to speak of big difference in system demand?  Apart from tech-press
reports, is there some way we could quantitatively deal with this?  A lot of reports about
browser performance have to do with number of tabs open, that sort of thing, and don't apply
to the use-case of this issue.

With regard to using the hosted libraries that make a browser engine available for local operation,
I would consider the following:

 1. What is already available on the platform without having to make the user do anything
or change how they operate?  (I notice many Linux distros include Chrome out of the box, which
has not even been mentioned, while others include Firefox in the basic installation.)

 2. Are we expecting users to change their browser or can these be transparent to whatever
the user preference is for browsing as opposed to a local app that runs in a browser-implemented
host framework?

[PS: It is probably confusing to refer to all of this as "webkit" since webkit is a specific
initiative that is, evidently, now exclusively supported by Apple since Google is now doing
something else.  I haven't followed how other browser producers have dealt with this and who
is playing on what team.]
