Well, I do have some RPMs available on my server, but there is a reason I haven't announced the project officially. The minimum required SailfishOS version is 1.1.9, which means only a few people outside of Jolla can run it. It won't work correctly on older releases. There are some bugs in libhybris which crash chromium and the compositor bits required by QuickSilver are missing. Also the test browser, QuickSilver Shell is not a real browser that is supposed to replace sailfish-browser or any other browser available in harbour. It's only a simple test application that allows me to test the engine. My goal is to make a proper, easy to maintain chromium port for sailfish. UI is a separate issue.

The sources for the project are not available, yet. QuickSIlver repo on my github page contains an original POC code I wrote early this year. Since then the architecture of the port has changed quite a bit. There are actually two separate projects right now. OzoneQt and QuickSilver. One makes it possible to run chromium engine on top of Qt, another implements a simplified embedding API that is usable from Qt Quick.
