Years ago I built the webkit demo provided with Qt for the chumby based on this guide:

I actually still keep the install on a USB stick with a debugchumby script to hi-jack my Infocast 8 that I use around Christmas time as a count-down to my light display.
I'm not sure the Chumby Classic will be a good target for this, but you can try!
Thanks! I've downloaded this onto a USB drive on my Chumby Classic -- which has a much smaller screen size than the Infocast 8 -- and I get a window with the upper-left corner of a browser in that window. However, there is not enough of the window visible to see any content.
I then downloaded the 'fullscreen browser', from the link on your web page, and I get the browser running in full screen ... and I can see the upper-left corner of the www.chumby.com page - success!
However, I want to run the browser without any of the browser controls or "chrome", since I just want to display some HTML, so I downloaded the "kiosk browser". When I use that, I get a blank white screen with an arrow cursor in center of the center.
That said, the browser-in-a-window is 459,012 bytes, the full-screen-browser is 459,012 bytes, and the link on your web page to the kiosk-browser is only 4,760 bytes. In addition, the link to the kiosk-browser is a file named wv.
So I'm wondering if the link for the kiosk browser -- which presumably will display a page without any browser controls or chrome? -- on your web page might be a bad/wrong link? The link is to: http://files.chumby.com/browser/wv
Since I assume that your Christmas time count-down is probably (?) running in kiosk mode, if it's not too much troubled easy enough to do, I was wondering whether you could verify the link, and if it is wrong, provide a link to the right file?
Otherwise, if it is the correct file, I don't expect you to spend any more time on this, but I was encouraged by the full screen browser displaying a corner of the www.chumby.com page. However, the browser controls and chrome takes up a substantial amount of the small Chumby Classic screen, rendering it mostly useless for my purposes.
