    Universal Browser


    Hey guys,

    I need a multiplatform browser which have

    - portability
    - HTML5 capability, specially for playing videos
    - legal to be redistributed in modified form
    - small in size

    Of course my first option was Firefox, it have Mac, Windows and Linux, while still relatively small.

    It have the capability of opening this page's video : HTML5 Video Player | Video.js

    However, when I set the profile to local, and do some other modifications, somehow it cannot open the relative path within the .bat file I made in Windows.

    But when I use light : lightfirefox.sourceforge.net the html displayed correctly and it can also play the video without any problem, using the same configuration I made for firefox.

    Unfortunately it only have windows version.

    I've also looked into QTWeb : QtWeb - Portable Web Browser but it cannot render the video correctly, only displaying the play button, but no videos at all.

    Most OS have been armed with browser and double clicking html files would be sufficient in most cases, but I did some more adjustments to light, like removing the navigation, menu and tool bar for the aesthetic purpose. So, I kinda need this feature too (did it with kiosk add-on for firefox, which installed without any problem within light)

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thanks in advance!

    Might help. Might not.

    NetSurf Web Browser

    I have been using the alpha snapshot of Vilvaldi but it is not multi platform yet.
    Too young yet.
    I have to build my own Slackware package just to keep up with the updates.
    Epiphany browser fits in but is not muti-platform either.
    Opera-developer is 64 bit only.
    Qupzilla?
    That narrows the choice down a bunch, as well as small size, as well as lots of features.

    Edit: maybe Seamonkey fits the bill?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
