I really do want to like this one
I really do ;). It's faster than I thought. It has some nice options and looks nice.
It would be nice to have an import bookmark option but that might be asking too much. But what really bothers me is when I refresh a page or click to a new part of a page, a new tab opens up of the same page I have open. So if I refresh Google, for example, I'd have a bunch of google pages open and I'd have to boot out and back in for it to stop.
Doesn't happen all the time but way to often for me to enjoy. 2 stars off for that. Any a bookmark bar to quickly access my most used websites.
In general, this is a great app. It's almost a perfect layout for the bowser interface, but:
a) I would make the tab close buttons bigger (I find myself frequently hitting buttons above the tabs, instead of the tab close button -- perhaps if you hold down the tab, and a context menu came up?
b) it doesn't support htaccess type password interfaces. Which is particularly annoying since iWeb web pages, that are private, use something like that for the authentication. So, you can't access private iWeb pages via FB Browser.
c) It'd be nice if it would remember state between runs. If I have tabs open, save their state and resume those tabs when I come back. I know that you can't TRULY do this without IOS4 multi-tasking, but you can fake it with saved states.
AGAIN nice Work
I bought this app because you did a fine job on your image searcher app and I am glad I did. This is another Fast response acting app.
The only thing that is missing is a way to save the videos that one is viewing! I hope that is not to much to ask. If you made that possible, you have the only browser that could do that and I'm sure that feature would hit the top charts.
