Hi Randolph,

Unfortunately my first response is NO.

The development might be for fun, but I didn't see a persuasive
reason of why we need one browser in a office suite. IMHO, in that case
we seem not to improve foreseeable usability, functionality or
productivity
to the suite, will we?

Instead, in an other way, I'd rather to put such an effort in improving
Libreoffice by put it into a browser, while obviously it is another thing
to
discuss.

Best wishes,
Yifan

Dear all,
after some talks with some board members, the request rised to include
more members and developers in the idea of adding a browser to Libreoffice.
We know this needs time and work, but would not be impossible to add it to
the installer and create a place to be for it, and see, how the community
reacts to it and requests more interaction. This security orientated webkit
browser would be a good codebasis for that:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/dooble/
Any pro or cons from anyone? No person in the office works today without
the internet, the consequence is, an office suite needs or could provide an
open source browser. Anyone interested to test or join the idea or
recommendations for the steps to plan?
Regards Randolph
