How's the speed as part of another app? I'm guessing far better than as part of Qt-Demo-Browser?

Pretty good, not fantastic, but given the circumstances pretty good. Of course it takes forever to start up because of the large shared objects that have to be loaded (also vacuum comes with about 60 plugins), but after that it is ok.
And by the way: There is a smaller Qt webkit browser example called "fancybrowser", and if you run it and turn off javascript, it is not that slow actually :).

How long is forever? :) Maybe disable some plugins?

Sorry, I cannot really change anything about the loading speed, since I am not in charge of the elf loader ;). The only thing I can do is to strip the binaries of any debug info, but I doubt that that is going to change much, because the stabs info is not loaded when linking dynamically.

Cool! A native IM app is welcome for sure!

At least we need a native Skype Text+File-Transfer-Client for AmigaOS to replace the non functional SabreMSN to stay in touch with out contacts.

Who said Skype replaces MSN? Ah, Microsoft. Of course.

Seriously, Skype is p2p technology, so it'd be *some* work even if we ignore the fact that it's (still) completely closed/proprietary, both source and protocol.

I just read something on the lightspark blog that might help speed up loading. It turns out that the standard GNU linker leaves in hundreds of unnecessary dynamic links for C++ code. This adds huge overhead at link time, all of which is a waste of time. The new gold linker does a good job of removing the unnecessary ones. I don't know if the AmigaOS SDK includes the gold linker or if you're already using it, but it's worth a look.

Ok, I have seriously been overlooking posts on this forum. I have been busy with music and toying with my new X1000 (soooo cool, you cannot imagine...), but now I am back in the game. Have fixed a few things with regards to libQtWebkit (actually mostly issues with libQtGui and QtNetwork), and I should be ready for release pretty soon. I have already shipped some beta-archives, so I hope to get some nifty feedback :).

When the Qt demo browser is ready, I will finish the vacuum port, and then MuseScore, and then a few other things... man there is going to be a feast on os4depot ;)

You can't (yet), unless you want to try the Windoze/Mac version:
