Sailfish Browser open sourced for community

Jolla at

Today we're proud to announce the first internal application project to be open sourced for community. As of today the code for the Sailfish Browser can be found in GitHub version control system at http://github.com/sailfishos/sailfish-browser

The Sailfish browser has been built on top of Mozilla open source Gecko browser engine, using EmbedLite embedding API (also known as IPCLiteAPI). Our objective is to make this the first step to get official support from Mozilla Corp. to a mobile browser based on Gecko and embedded in Qt.

That's great news! How about next step: open sourcing the rest of the operating system? :-)

Came here to say that - it's the reason I stick with CyanogenMod instead of your OS.
