Raspberry Pi web browsing

The Raspberry Pi is currently introducing better web browsers every day.  For example, the latest browser from collabora.com is a multi-tabbed, HTML5 optimised based web browser which is new to the Raspberry Pi.  This web browser supports HTML 5 video decoding which has that advantage of rendering videos without slowing down the Raspberry Pi.  It is not recommended that you install this web browser as this is still in development and has been known to cause problems with existing software but if you are adventurous just following the instructions below.  It is recommended that you backup any data first.

To install this browser enter the following.

$ sudo deb http://raspberrypi.collabora.com wheezy web

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get upgrade

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

To use the browser go to the Applications–>Internet menu and select it from here.
