Does anyone know of or could anyone make a video of the browser app on the tablet. I've had a look around on YouTube and the best I can find is a video of the browser on the phone on SFOS1.

I've even tried looking at as many review/hands-on videos as I can just in case they show it, but I'm yet to even see what the UI looks like.

The browser is the most important aspect to me so I'd really like to see the UI/performance/features/compatibility before buying a tablet.

Can anyone help? Any screenshots or written reviews would be welcomed too. Or even any advise about compatibility with Android browsers.

Posting as an answer in case it covers your questions.

I am a Jolla phone user and overall am happy with the browser. There are other native browsers like Webcat,etc. Haven't checked but Android browsers should work too. Have pasted some links below (soem could be outdated)

Also, good news about browser is that is completely open source, so (theoretically) can expect improvements faster. https://github.com/sailfishos/sailfish-browser https://blog.jolla.com/developer-spotlight-siteshwar-open-source-sailfish-browser/
