Hey fellow XDA friends,
As we know that popup browser is added in stock JB roms but there is no way to launch it from launcher but only by clicking links.So I have made an app with the help of Gamma(my fellow dev) that will launch the stock popup browser with www.google.com as the home page.The app currently works perfect on Note and I expect it to work on all JB TW roms.But since I only have Note N7000 with me,I'm unable to test it on any other device running JB.Those having other phone running JB based TW roms can test it and report me

This is my first app I have ever written for android and I want it to be open source and have uploaded the sources too.Of course there isnt much big in the source as it only calls the Stock popup browser.But still Its my will to make all my work(more in future) opensource

This app works only on JB based TW roms.That means it wont work on AOSP or AOKP like CM10 and CM10 based roms etc..This is because There is no Popup browser on Roms built from sources like CM10.And this app is not a standalone popup browser app.It only invokes the stock popup browser already present in our JB roms...

Installation instruction:
1.Download the app v1.1 here
2.Install it as normal app or push it into /system/app with permission rw-r-r

Everyone are free to include this app in there roms without asking prior permission as long as credits are given .Please do press thanks if you use this app

Thanks to Gamma for helping me build my first app

Source-Update will be uploaded soon

Code:
Change log:
1. Added support for android 4.2.
2. Removed toast for those who don't like it.

Remove old app if you have before installing v1.1.Or else you will get signature conflict
 because the signature is changed as I lost my old key store :silly:

It's the same thing as adding a bookmark on the homescreen that opens google It'll ask of you want to use pop-up browser.

This app directly calls the popup browser activity and how do you call this a bookmark widget????:P

I had to give Google.com because popup browser will give fc when started without a weblink at the start
