*Non rpm work:*
We are making steady progress in stabilizing Chromium.
*To be able to finish this all we urgently need more sponsors!!!.*

*Proof of concept:*
We released a proof of concept browser, which is limited in functionality. It lacks bookmarks, printing and more. This browser is to demonstrate, that a lot more websites are working. The Otter Browser in the end will have more functionality of course.
Here you can download the latest browser version. <> In the 7z download is a readme.txt file with details how run run the browser.
In order to run it, you need to update libc, libcx, libevent and ffmpeg-libs from Netlabs experimental repository.
