Non rpm work:
We are making steady progress in stabilizing Chromium.
To be able to finish this all we urgently need more sponsors!!!.

Proof of concept:
We released a proof of concept browser, which is limited in functionality. It lacks bookmarks, printing and more. This browser is to demonstrate, that a lot more websites are working. The Otter Browser in the end will have more functionality of course.
Here you can download the latest browser version. In the 7z download is a readme.txt file with details how to run and install the browser.
In order to run it, you need to update libc, libcx, libevent and ffmpeg-libs from Netlabs experimental repository.

We estimated in 2018 that we need around 42000 €. But it turns out this estimate was too optimistic. As of today 21.01.2021 the new estimate is 5000 € higher, which means 49000 € in total.
As of 18.01.2021 we collected 41390 €.
