For the past few updates nothing has actually been done about the browser. It's really out of date and has issues with many websites. Has it's development been abandoned?

It's not abandoned. As you can see on github they going to change gecko engine to 45. https://github.com/sailfishos/sailfish-browser

As you can see gecko version will change in 3.0.3 so in next SailfishOS release. https://github.com/sailfishos/sailfish-browser/tree/upgrade-3.0.3

To be fair, even Gecko 45 is still 21 months, nearly two years, out of date.

@nthn Yes but I guess this is a stepping stone in order to get to a recent version of it.

What is making it so hard to choose newer version? Does the API change so much between versions?
