How many things need to happen until you will consider it? First, you'd only
consider it once there was a stable release of QupZilla. That happened.
Then, you'd only consider it once it was tested for an entire
release cycle. That happened, too. Now, you'll only consider it once it
becomes an official part of KDE. What will need to happen next?
When can the KDE Spin finally default to a Qt browser that will soon be the
official KDE browser?
Are we getting a bit over-cooked for this somewhat trivial issue?
We really only care about what gets put on the live boot image. Beyond that,
once its installed, the user can install whatever browser they want via
The key part is that it needs to be able to bring up web pages from within a
live boot - which just about any of the available choices do.
Lets take out the personal preferences and plugin issues aside - because those
are well and truly a post-install option.
I'm all for *any* browser - but lets only ship one browser in the image - not
multiple. If Qupzilla fits the bill, lets use it. Otherwise, standardise on
something else - and leave the choice to the user as a post-install option.
