Is there a better web browser for QNX 6.5.0?
I can’t read my mail at:
and I cannot login to facebook.
I downloaded trial version of QNX 6.5.0.
And it has got Bon Echo (firefox) browser.
I had to make another computer to run CProxy on WindowsXP,
because QNX couldn’t reqognize my VLAN which I use for the internet.
(Many linuxes doesn’t UBUNTU does)
I have read about Voyager. Would it be the answer? Where could I download that.
I don’t think Voyager is the answer, it was depreciated in QNX 6.4 and I don’t think it even exists in 6.5. I also don’t know which version of Firefox/Bon Echo the trial version of QNX 6.5 ships with but you can try the version that Crank Software ported here: cranksoftware.com/downloads/ to see if it’s at least a newer version.
Having said all this, QNX does have a Web Browser project in Foundry27 (community.qnx.com/sf/projects/web_browsers) and they must have done some work on browsers for the PlayBook but I have had no luck finding it and am not ambitious enough to play around with WebKit.
I tested those programs, only one was browser. One looked like MS outlook. One was a calendar. But they can’t go to facebook.
I looked at CProxy too and I think it was CCProxy which was question here?

You’ll need to set up X from the same location. YMMV.
Is there even an xphoton or rootless X for 6.5?
Yea, this is a big hole in QNX. There’s rumor that the work on the playbook’s browser will appear in a 6.5.1 or a 6.6, but no date that I know of. I rather suspect it will not be running under Photon either.
I think there is a webkit-based browser shipped with 6.5, that works directly with GF (io-display). QNX doesn’t seem to seriously support desktop use of their OS for many years, I don’t understand why people are still trying.
On Playbook, it’s QNX but with a completely new graphics framework, which surely will be available outside the Blackberry space aswell.
It’s not just about providing a desktop like Windows. As an example, I have a customer who’s embedded system is using HTML as the help. We are hampered by the lack of an up to date browser.
You can compile/build a Qt browser for QNX. Qt’s QWebView class incorporates recent webkit code. I have seen quite a few example browsers using QWebView - you really just need to add the back, reload, URL bar, etc.
