Start all instances in the same process

Browse using xulrunner is a single process activity where all instances are in the same process. We need to see how WebKit handles this.

Authenticate with schoolserver

  • Create a HTTP Cookie to authenticate with the Schoolserver


  • Set intl.accept_languages preference based on the locale

Don't autoplay flash, embed in web page

  • see agent-stylesheet.css in Browse how we did this before (test with njambre.org web page)

There is a free Safari (using WebKit) plugin that does the same: https://github.com/rentzsch/clicktoflash


  • CAcert

View Source

  • The view source feature in Browse, should show the html page source, added to the activity source.
