Epiphany Browser For Raspberry Pi (Raspbian) Got Improved HTML5 Support

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Raspberry Pi is an ARM single-board computer with the size of a credit card, being available in three variants: model A, model B and model B+.

Also worth mentioning, there are a bunch of Linux systems optimized for ARM, including: Raspbian (based on Debian Wheezy), Pidora (based on Fedora) and Arch Linux.

Epiphany Browser For Raspberry Pi (Raspbian) Got Improved HTML5 Support

Recently, both the Raspberry Pi team and Collabora have created a HTML5 capable internet browser, based on Epiphany (GNOME Web). The two teams have been working over eight months at adding the below features to Epiphany:

  • improved HTML5 support
  • a JavaScript JIT
  • hardware-accelerated video decoding
  • ARMv6-optimized blitting functions
  • better interactivity during page loading and faster scrolling.

To get the new Epiphany Browser on your Raspbian system running on Raspberry Pi, you have to update the local repository index and install the epiphany-browser package:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install epiphany-browser
