A-Browser Qt (test)

This is a tryout to evaluate if an alternate browser for WebOS is feasible and of interest.
The app is a Qt 4.8 using webkit (QWebView) for rendering.

It's about 2x faster on the sunspider JavaScript benchmark as the stock browser, which is pretty sweet.
It isn't very touch friendly as it is basically a desktop app.

The app is an almost straight port of the Qt "fancybrowser" demo.
The WebOS extension for Qt to work on WebOS are derived from https://gitorious.org/~darronb.

Developing a full-fledged browser is a hard task. I do not plan to develop this much further but would be happy to help if somebody is interested.
