Description

Due to #705, the webview apk in Replicant 6.0 cannot be updated. Currently, webview version 43.0.2357.134 is in use. It was released in July 2015 and has numerous security issues that were discovered since then.

Updating the webview apk would fix a lot of security issues and would ensure that websites can be visited securely using the browser shipped with Replicant or Lightning.
