Hey Vivien, so this is pretty much impossible to do without stuffing the browser UI in the system app right? I looked into this and possible ways to split the UI into homescreen, but without a communication mechanism between homescreen and system, plus the fact the url scrolling stuff most certainly wont work cross process it seems like we are going to have to go with a pain copy and paste from browser into the system?

I think you might have had more ideas about this since the moving folder thing (as we do for lockscreen + camera) is a 2 minute job

Sorry should have needinfod you before.

I am on PTO next week so its likely someone else will need to pick this up before the 18th, as far as I can tell looking into it there isnt a clean migration path from app browser to in system browser, I would suggest leaving the app browser as is, and porting parts of the browser piece by piece, the current browser code has a lot of refactoring needed so this seems like it would be the cleanest way
Chatted on IRC, will port piece by piece

And deassigning as this is a meta
