Re: Playbook web browser enhancements?

@longway77 Your tabs reload? I never encountered reloading of already open tabs.

What's bugging me is that when closing a tab the tab-bar closes too, so closing multiple tabs is very annoying...

Re: Playbook web browser enhancements?

Yeah, when I leave a tab open in the background and I come back 1 minute later I see the blue bar reloading the page and video streaming is back to zero.
Closing multible tabs is buggy as well.
And what's bad furthermore: When surfing in private mode, the browser doesn't remember history, etc... but when you close it and reopen it it remembers all the open tabs (when you set it as the default behaviour). But that shouldn't happen for private mode.

The best you could do is use the QNXStageWebView class to create your own flash browser. I'm currently in the middle of doing this due to a lack of the BB browser's ability to spoof userAgents.
However I would advice waiting until some of the bugs are worked out. So far I've run into a really huge bug in the sdk that prevents you from properly handling javascript popup windows and even links that target _blank. I have a post on it here:
