Multitouch Private Full Screen Web Browser - fgBrowser
By Matthias Gasser
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This is the first PRIVATE FULLSCREEN and MULTITOUCH based webbrowser exclusively! -> Touch with 3 fingers to get started <-
Stay always private. Just press the home button. All traces are wiped out immediately!
Protect your bookmarks from prying eyes! Everybody got something to hide ;)
Set bookmarks (with icons), default homepage and much more!
Many different kind of gestures to give you the control over your browser. To get started touch your screen with 3 fingers at once.This brings your bookmark and search and url screen up immediately...
Use every inch of your display and gain about 40% more visible space of your website.
To perform a 2 finger swipe you don't have to be fast or super kind... You only have to perform a swipe for about an half inch with 2 fingers. (see screenshot)
Important: Move your fingers this half inch parallel. Because otherwise it will be interpreted as "pinch zoom"! If you have any further question, go and visit my blog: feel free to post any inquiry there in the comments.

Touch with 3 fingers anywhere at the screen to open the bookmark screen. There you may enter a url, start a google search. Or just tap on a site your favorite site. To add a bookmark use the 2 finger swipe down gesture and select "add to favs". If you like to remove a bookmark you may do so by using the swipe gesture again, or hit the edit button in the bookmark view. To protect a bookmark, just hit the edit button and set the secure swipe button to 1. It will now only be visible @ the pass-code protected area.
At the general setting section scroll down until you see "multitouch". There you might set:
- enable / disable the one tap scroll to top/bottom feature
- set the right / left swipe behaviour (default left swipe history back)
- set google language
- remember device orientation - so after a restart Private fgBrowser shows the last used orientation, and it remembers also the last autorotation lock, which will flash short after starting your private browser.
Your bookmarks are presented in 3 different ways:
Code: Set you own 4 digit pass-code, so every bookmark in this section stays really private! If you forgot you pass-code, you may reset it, but all protected private fgBrowser bookmarks get swiped off your device.
Hit - Count: sorted by hit count
Date: ordered by last access date
