It would provide a more consistent browsing experience, and possibly remove one dependency.

Could you provide a link to it?

Link to what? Qt5Mozilla is included in Sailfish, it's what the default browser is based on.

Can you not use it already? Maybe some one has gotten it going - I've tried but cannot seem to import the module successfully. I've installed qtmozembed-qt5 and qtmozembed-qt5-devel on the SDK. I'll keep digging.

Just got this on the sailfish dev mailing list:

We have not configured Mozilla engine for 3rd party use (there are issues like only one profile, etc.), and that is why using it is not a good idea, and the app would not be accepted to store. BR, Vesku
