Plasma Web Browser and WebKit

Recently I’ve been working on the web browser plasmoid and since yesterday it’s possible to use it like a complete stand alone browser (with advanced rendering capabilities thanks to QtWebKit), moreover Plasma::WebView has been recently ported to KGraphicsWebView so it has KDE integration too.

The summary of recent changes is:

  • Plasma::WebView does the same (and better) with less lines of code.
  • Plasma::WebView uses now a KDE integrated WebKit.
  • Web Browser now supports windows (with overlays).
  • The progress bar has been replaced with a ProgressComboBox (like rekonq).

By the end of the tokamak plasma will provided to users a complete web experience.
