Install HTML5 Capable Browser In Raspberry Pi

'Web' is the epiphany port available for Raspberry Pi users, which is HTML5 capable browser & it's predicted to be shipped in future Raspbian release. Well, if you're impatient for the official release of 'Web' & wanna try out this awesome browser, here's few steps which will let you enjoy the beta version of 'Web' in your Raspberry Pi.


[For me, if you have noticed, the icons within the browser is not showing up properly, maybe some files are conflicting, for which i will take care later on]

To install 'Web' in Raspberry pi :

Open /etc/apt/source.list with 'root' & add the following line:

deb wheezy web

Now, update the repository & upgrade the system by entering following commands in terminal :

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Now install 'Web' browser by entering following commands in terminal :

sudo apt-get install epiphany-browser cgroup-bin libraspberrypi0 libwayland-client0 libwayland-cursor0 libwayland-server0a

Latest kernel supports cgroups (also known as control groups) which limits & isolates the resources like CPU, memory, I/O usages. To activate it, add cgroup_enable=memory in Kernel command line.

That's it. Enjoy surfing.
