New Windows CE 8.0 Endorphin based web browser

Handheld PC News

Posted 1 year ago | News | Chris Tilley 0 comments

GitHub user datadiode has released a fork of the Endorphin web browser designed to run on Windows Embedded CE 2013 (Windows CE 8.0).

Endorphin is a cross platform web browser built using Qt and WebKit that is itself a fork of Arora browser. The goal of Endorphin is to create a lightwight, fast and simple browser, that has many features and is compatible with most websites.

The Endorphin browser and in turn datadiode's latest 0.12.1 release from 18th January are beta releases and should very much be considered testing samples. The release is only compatible with Windows CE 8.0 and has an ARM build available along with the source code.

If you are one of only a few people to have a rather rare Windows Embedded CE 2013 device, please be aware that datadiode is keen to point out that the project does not provide a secure web browsing experience as a result of known flaws in Endorphin's use of QtWebKit. So if you attempt to use the beta release, please ensure that you avoid using online banking or engaging with e-commerce sites using the project.

More information on the datadiode browser can be found on the official GitHub page as well as in the HPC:Factor SCL.
