I'm in favour of removing Google lib dependencies, especially if they
give certificate errors :-)
But I did like the news-tab though, and was hoping to attract more
people to read (and write!) about QGIS.
We have a 'news item part' in the frontpage of qgis.org, this is just 10
and pulls the title and url from these, see
Though this script is using jquery (which is in the website, but
probably not available in QGIS), I'm pretty sure we can do without and
and show headlines like on the frontpage....)
This does still not anwer the question though, if it is alright to fetch
data from external websites upon startup...
