    I have a pile of Asus Tablets (ME172V) that have Android 4.1.1 (max) installed on them (donated to our tiny private school by a university).

    I'm developing a primitive browser app (locked to one domain) for school use, and I'm implementing the WebView component in Android Studio to do so.

    Due to the age of the Android OS, the WebView component does not seem to support certain modern CSS functionality. This is causing me some serious issues.

    I want to know if there's a way to manually "update" that functionality in place, by itself (just the WebView component). Is there are way to do this without needing to update the entire OS (which is probably impossible given the age of the tablets)?
