Will webbrowser-app be updated on Ubuntu 14.04?

Asked by Alessandro Viprati on 2015-01-13

Hello, I use a lot of webapps on my Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I love them, but I can't play html5 videos.

I remember time ago webapps worked well, video playback worked too. Now I can't play videos from youtube, fb, G+ or other webapps, and it's a big loss of functionality. Everyone wants a youtube webapp that plays videos.

On Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, webapps works with webbrowser-app and this app in Ubuntu 14.04 isn't updated (if I'm correct) since the release of this OS on April 2014.

Because this is a LTS release, I think it's really important to offer a full-featured webapp ecosystem, this includes for example video playback and copy/paste function, which doesn't works too in 14.04 versione of webbrowser-app.

So I ask you: can you update webbrowser-app to a new version for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS? I know you made a lot of work for this app, from blogs and youtube I saw that now it's faster and a lot of functionality were added.
Considering this is a LTS release, it should be a good enhancement.
