There are a number of advantages to be derived from a browser that is written in Java as opposed to a language compiled into native code, namely:
We provide a separate Java-based programming library, named CobraParser, which implements the parsing and rendering capabilities of LoboBrowser. CobraParser is also open source.
We document LoboBrowser's Java code such that it can be used as an embeddable browser API. This API is released under the MIT license.
LoboBrowser supports extensions (plugins) written in Java. See the plugin example page.
LoboBrowser is open source and is released under the terms of the MIT license. We make the source code available on github.
LoboBrowser is work in progress. If you would like to contribute, please see the repository on github for information on how to set up an environment for development of LoboBrowser, and on
how to submit code patches.
If you have any specific suggestions on improving LoboBrowser or CobraParser, please don't hesitate to contact us.
