If you find a bug please email me with details. I may contact you with some questions:"Id say hes done a pretty good job. There are no superfluous functions or bloat of any kind, and you arent even expected to put up with ads."--Conan Troutman, Close current tab by touching its tab bar button. Swipe right --> to show bookmarks/history. Long press bookmarks/history to edit. The "desktop" button allows you to view full, rather than mobile, versions of sites. One finger zoom: Double-tap and hold, then swipe left/right to zoom. Undo close tab & add new bookmark: Long press new tab "+" button. Choose a search engine for URL bar search: Long press "go". Go directly to recent history: Long press the forward -> button. Read through browser options for more.CYANOGEN(MOD) USERSI want to support all versions of CM but some of the errors are out of my hands, like this one: Browser does not use data to spy, monitor, or even show ads. All data transfer is solely as a result of your requests & retrievals. Because Naked Browser is designed for efficiency, you may use more data simply because you can browse sites faster.Other browsers track users! This thread discusses violations in several popular browsers: concerned with privacy? Spying wastes resources (battery, bandwidth, CPU) and slows your device.SECURITYNaked Browser uses the Android WebView (WebKit) that's on your device--the same one used by the stock Browser. All data requests & retrievals, all cookies, all passwords, all form data, everything is handled by the WebView and Naked Browser does not interfere with the default behavior. I've also scoured the stock Browser code and if anything I believe that Naked Browser is a simplification of the stock Browser.BEWARE PHISHINGNaked Browser does not and may never employ a phishing filter. A phishing filter can warn you if you have visited a site that is suspected of hosting malware. This does not mean that Naked Browser is insecure, but it does mean that--like with any web browser--you should be careful what sites you visit.PERMISSIONS Internet: ONLY for your web page requests & retrievals. Absolutely no monitoring or snooping, & ad-less too. File read/write: ONLY so you can save & upload files. Absolutely no other reason. View network state: ONLY to handle changes in network connectivity. Keep device from sleeping: ONLY to prevent downloads from being cut off.CURRENTLY MISSINGGeo-location, which may never be added.Designed and made by an independent software developer named Tony in Redwood City, California, United States of America.Thanks to Mike & Charlotte for all the alpha testing.keywords firefox opera dolphin hd netscape navigator mozilla chrome internet explorer safari mini mobile browse surf net page www url interwebRecent changes: bug fix: space bar caused unwanted scroll (some devices)Previously: bug fix: more robust file downloads option: swipe 2x for menus for less jittery UI wider tab buttons for big screens long press new tab '+' button for new bookmark bug fix: search suggestions handle network problems bug fix: home button press from full screen video won't lock browser in landscape smaller start page width fixed some odd/rare crashesContent rating: Everyone
