Hey, how about adapting otter browser an Opera Browser clone to Sailfish OS. Should be quite easy as there are already linux installation packages, i think there would just have to be done some adaptations to.include some missing packages. Tried to.install it ones, but got a error message. This would give us the opportunity to use a native Opera browser on our Sailfish X :)

I don't use the native browser on my Sailfish X as I read that it is way outdated and has no options to block any trackers and 3rd party crap to provide a good (and private) surfing experience. Looking forward to any decent browser on my Sailfish X device. So good initiative!

Yeah, like i know Sailfish Browser is based on a quite old Firefox version. 35 or so, but the problem is apparently a Nokia API that is used and would have to be replaced but therefore you would have to modify the whole browser. For Otter Browser there are fitting installation packages but apparently still some packages would have to be adapted, but this shouldn't be that hard. But then we would have a native Opera Browser for Sailfish OS and that would be awesome :P
