Description Laszlo Gombos 2009-10-09 20:56:03 PDT
This feature is useful on mobile platforms; to minimize the fragmentation between QtWebKit platforms let's turn it on for all platforms not just mobile. This was discussed with Simon in the past and agreed that this is a good idea.

A Qt person would need to approve this.  Seems like a strange strange feature to have on for desktop browsers. This makes WebKitQt differ further from Mac, AppleWin, Chromium, etc.

I think this is a really bad idea. These features allow fragmentation.  The real value is for browsing HTTP through WAP gateways, which I just can't imagine happening on desktop Qt applications.  I have to r- on principle, and agree with Eric.

This comes down to manage fragmentation between QtWebKit ports running on different environments vs. WebKit ports running on the same environment (e.g. desktop).

I'm OK to have it turned off by default as it could be enabled on the CLI easily. Mark it WONTFIX for now.
