I like this browser a lot but it's the only one I have used that cannot save passwords. Is that on purpose? I thought the limitations of the browser were due to google but chrome saves passwords as does boat and dolphin.

Also, why does a blank tab seem to open in addition to the tab I want when I open links from my RSS or the news and weather app (or any source that needs to open a web page)if naked browser hasn't been opened previously? It's as if it always wants the blank start screen in its own tab on the far left.

It will remember passwords if you use the cookie white list function. What I do if I want a specific site to remember a password I go to the main url e.g. facebook.com, click the cookie white list icon, and then do the login procedure. This also works good if you use Disqus for commenting on multiple sites, then instead of whitelisting all these sites you only need to whitelist disqus.com and login.

They may delete this message and I may be banned again.

The freedom to discuss what this is about is absent, so my participation on xda is done.

Contact me via all other avenues. Naked Browser lives.

Excelsior! :good:

Good luck with your work. I'll keep advertising it here.

I'm wondering that if this browser can come out the functionality to block ads? I don't mind to pay a dollar or two more for an additional plug in.

I'm against a G+-Community since I'm not registered there and don't plan on doing so and still would like to follow the latest development of this amazing app...

Hello, how are you? Are you still developing? Or decided to drop it?
Small request.
In full screen mode page is loaded fully, without any white gaps, areas. That is very fine, but when I have text box in a very bottom, when I'm tapping it to edit, I can't see what I'm entering, text box is hided by keyboard. When full-screen option is disabled, bottom text appear in top of keyboard, so everything is fine. If that's possible and you willing to- please fix it :)
4.1.2 jb
Regards.

One more thing. Do you have power to influence text selection list wideness?
Have same name but different surnames, so it's sometimes tricky so select right one :)
Was using BlackBerry for some time, very fine OS, but it lacks Lithuanian language, so ditched it for mean time. Returned back to oldy, so some parts needs to polished :)
REGARDS.

What problems are you having? It's working OK for me on 4.4.2.


The double tap zoom in and out doesn't respond very well sometimes works and other no.Like 1 yes and 3 no and it is frustrating.Not only when does not work often open a link instead of the zoom and is a real mess.I had to come back in dolphin cause was a big problem...
Im waiting for a solution...

I see. It's a little jumpy for me but it seems to work pretty well. You probably are better off using email to contact the developer.

    TRY THE FREE VERSION OF THIS WEB BROWSER
    If you are not familiar with the free version of Naked Browser then please see this thread on XDA Developers. Please try the free version first before you even consider Naked Browser Pro.

    WHAT'S NEW RIGHT NOW?
    Naked Browser Pro is the paid version and the plan is to add many cool features in the coming weeks and months. Differences between the Pro and free versions include whitelists (JavaScript, cookies, user agent, images, geolocation), gestures, action customizations (link long press, double tap, tab close method), screenshots, and quite a lot more. See http://nakedbrowser.com/pro/ for help and how to import bookmarks from the free version. See the Play Store listing or change logs in this thread for what else is new.

    PRETTINESS / UGLINESS OF THE USER INTERFACE
    Currently, the look of the user interface of this app is a low priority. Why? There are too many other cool features which I want to implement first. I am a solo developer so I have limited resources and I must prioritize. Having to deal with graphics as I change underlying code is a waste of resources.

    NEW PERMISSIONS / YOUR PRIVACY
    A main goal of the free version was to limit the permissions required. That limit has been removed in order to add all kinds of new features. However, just like the free version, Naked Browser Pro will never spy or monitor you in any way. The primary motivation of Naked Browser has always been to provide a web browser for Android that is trustworthy.

    THANK YOU
    I appreciate your feedback and support so thank you very much. The positive comments keep me motivated and the negative ones are helpful too, as long as they are backed up with specific details in order to help development.

    NEW FIRST VERSION in the Google Play Store: 1.0 build 1

    CHANGE LOG
    • bookmarks import from free version of app via Data options > Import bookmarks *
    • cookie whitelist enabled when you turn on Data options > Cookies clear on exit **
    • accept URLs to view via near field communication (NFC). Let me know as I was unable to test this.
    • see open tabs list via long pressing new tab "+" menu
    • UI tweaks ***
    • Adobe Flash can be set to "always on" (not recommended) ****
    * From the free version go options > Data options > Export bookmarks. Then, in Naked Browser Pro go options > Data options > Import bookmarks. I plan to add more bookmarks import options and hopefully syncing in the future.
    ** Enable this feature by enabling the clear cookies on exit option. When you visit a site like xda-developers.com and you want to keep cookies (stay logged in) you simply touch the cookie icon on the browser's bottom menu. Then, when you exit the browser all cookies will be cleared except those from the sites you have approved.
    *** "more" menu is part of bottom menu and the top part scrolls left/right, bottom menu labels removed, new and higher resolution app icon, app icon label now "Browser NBPro".
    **** People asked for this so they got it. Hey, it's the Pro version. Adobe Flash causes many crashes, uses lots of resources, and is used by companies to track you. I say leave it "on demand" or "off"!

    Thanks again XDA Developers!!!

    NEW VERSION in the Google Play Store: 1.0 build 7

    CHANGE LOG
    • temporarily showing images no long requires page reload in most cases **
    • options and downloads views Holo themed, newer devices only
    • force enable zoom on web sites that attempt to limit zooming, newer devices only ***
    • minor UI tweaks (user agent rule menu is now multiple choice)
    * Since the previous update I've been trying out "images only over WIFI", but now I am thinking of setting it to OFF ALL THE TIME! :cool: <--blind guy? Pages load so fast...and with the new image whitelist feature (so far just whitelisted google and imgur)...I think I'm starting to really like this browser!:laugh:

    ** This just makes turning off images that much easier to take. If you want to temporarily display images for a site, use the image button on the bottom menu. In some cases--some sites, on some (older?) devices--a page reload is needed, but usually works without reload.

    *** This disables the Apple meta tag that tells the browser to not allow zoom on some pages. :eek: <--great idea, Steve. I was even able to make this work on older devices but the overhead required just didn't seem worth it. I could make it an option.

    As always, thank you for the feedback XDA Developers! :good:

    NEW VERSION in the Google Play Store: 1.0 build 13

    CHANGE LOG
    • efficiency: if link long press action set to open background tab, swipe left or right after opening switches to new tab ****
    • crash fix: in certain cases non-ASCII characters in URLs would cause a crash. Thanks XDA member gabi11 for reporting this.
    • fixed blurred text in options views due to bug on some Sony devices. Thanks Jeremy W. (XDA member?) for reporting/testing.
    • bug fix: links from intents, like links to Play Store apps, would not open in proper tab in some cases
    • new/edit bookmark group dialog restricts to one line of text (previously, could press enter in text field which would add a space )
    • small speed optimization to app launch
    **** This is a straightforward yet exciting new feature:laugh: that you should try. If you set the "Link long press" action to "open in new tab" it will open the link in a new background tab. Now with this update if you keep your finger pressed down and swipe left or right after the tab opens, that tab is brought to the front. If you are like me:cyclops:, you often open links in background tabs but sometimes you like to view the tab immediately. Now you can do this by swiping after the tab opens. A first for mobile browsers...or any browser? Remember that you can still view the context menu for a link by displaying the browser's bottom menu before you long press the link. This is all much more complicated to describe than it is to use.

    :good:Thank you XDA Developers!!!:good:

    NEW VERSION in the Google Play Store: 1.0 build 16

    CHANGE LOG
    • new option: geolocation lets web sites ask if you will share your location *
    • block resources with .nbhosts.txt file in download directory, newer Android versions only **
    • bug fix: turning off "Data options > Passwords saved" now deletes all saved passwords
    • web search intents (like searches from other apps) now always open a new tab
    • small speed optimizations to page loads, bookmarks/history/suggestions/dowloads list generation
    • fixed an odd/rare crash
    • reduced possibility of back button making history skip too far back ***
    • long press device search button does voice search, if system allows
    * Off by default. When enabled, each site interested in your location will ask permission. You can allow/deny temporarily or the browser can remember your decision. If you change your mind, use the new map button that will appear on the bottom menu to choose a different geolocation rule for the site.
    ** This works on Android versions after Gingerbread. In your download folder put a file named .nbhosts.txt (the first character in the file name is a dot). When Naked Browser Pro is launched, it will load each line of this file to filter out any resources where the URL contains a match (case insensitive). This can be used to block ads and malware. Google "etc host adblock" for examples like this list. Too many filters can actually slow down page loads, although several thousand are probably OK. To temporarily bypass the filters and load the page allowing all blocked content, long press the bottom menu "reload" button.
    *** May also fix Samsung multi-window issue with device back button, although I was unable to test it.

    Thank you for your help and support! Please let me know if you have questions about the new hosts filter or anything else.
