Chromium Web View instead of the older web view


#1

Is there a complete tutorial on using the Chromium web view as the default web view for Android version 4.0 to 4.3 in ionic.

If chromium is so much better and supports nearly all HTML5 features then why doesn’t ionic integrate Chromium web view as the default web view that comes with Ionic?

Ionic supports Android 4.0 and above, so why not make Chromium web view as default that comes with the ionic build?

Well Ionic is built on top of cordova, which uses the default browser for anything less than 4.4. For the latest 4.4, cordova actually uses the chrome-web-view by default. There are other projects out in the cordova realm that have integrated the chrome web view with older android version. Take a look at this post
