View Full Version : Epiphany 2.22 compiled with Webkit

March 21st, 2008, 04:48 PM
Today and yesterday I compiled Epiphany 2.22 with Webkit support. I have 2 words for it: awesome speed. I can load pages noticably faster than Firefox 3 with it. It is still lacking stuff like cookies, but I have a feeling it will be done in 2.24. Anyway, I attached a screenshot of it for all to see. I may try to make a deb package of it (haven't done it before, but it is worth a try).

EDIT: Had to attach the screenshot with FF3, as you can see it isn't complete yet. ;)

I was thinking of doing this at some point actually. I'd be willing to host any package in my PPA.

I did this once, a while back. Hopefully it's improved since. I just didn't like the way pages looked when they rendered. Also it used that one type of scrolling that I hate (I think it's smooth scrolling), and I just couldn't live with that. Overall I'm hoping it has massively improved before I use it full time. I'm probably just used to gecko.
