I haven't seen anywhere and am really curious...what web browser will Ubuntu Phone OS use? Regular Firefox, Firefox mobile, something else?

Thanks in advance if anyone has any info!!

Presumably, regular Firefox, just compiled for ARM and presumably with some UI tweaks, since Android apps can't run on Ubuntu Phone. But I imagine Mozilla will eventually build a mobile version for Ubuntu Phone more similar to Firefox Mobile.

Right now the phone uses snowshoe
http://snowshoe.openbossa.org/

But you can make a browser in QML real fast in easy here is how



import QtQuick 2.0
import QtWebKit 3.0

WebView {
url: "http://ubuntuforums.org/"
width: 490
height: 400
smooth: false
}
