First of all: bravo! The browser looks awesome!

After that, I'd like to show you some little problems I've met on my lil' Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0": (sorry I can't add pics)
  • if you compare the real space for the page that Chrome is giving us:
    http: //dl.dropbox.com/u/315701/Screenshot_2012-09-17-22-44-47.png
    with the one that your app is providing (is it yours, btw?)
    http: //dl.dropbox.com/u/315701/Screenshot_2012-09-17-22-53-03.png
    you'll discover that there's really too little space for the web pages :\
    I know, there are maybe just few pixels less, but that big fat gray bar is killing me lol
  • why don't you use all the available space for the bookmarks/start page?
    http: //dl.dropbox.com/u/315701/Screenshot_2012-09-17-22-43-57.png
  • could you please provide the user agent for tablets in the list of the available choices? just use the one that the Nexus 7 is using, for example (as a workaround I've set the one that Chrome is using)

Keep up the good job! ;)

Good one! But still a plenty of work to do. SwiftKey is not showing predictions wherever I type - a login or a message. Used it about ten minutes, in the end I couldn't launch the keyboard tapping on a blank field.
The good thing is I could choose the words to quote in a forum. Stock jb browser and opera fail to do it.
Bravo! Looking forward to seeing this updated!

Great browser, pages loads extremely fast!
2 things though:
- That bar on the end of the page could be more transparent so we could be able to see more of the page
- I don't know if it's just with me but after typing the web adress I want using Swype keyboard and hiting enter button the page don't start loading, I need to click on the browser button to do so and it's a bit annoying.

Despite those 2 things , congrats, it's a great app and definitely I'm setting it as my main browser!

This is tint I assume?

Need better navigation between tabs and get rid of that stupid semi-transparent bar at the bottom.

Very fast browser. Should add a option to toggle the bottom search bar from showing after scrolling the page. Also a dark/blue theme would be awesome. Look forward to future updates.

    Hi all,

    I'm the developper of Tint Browser. As some have stated if the thread, it seems that HoloWeb is based on Tint Browser.

    This is NOT an issue, as Tint's license (GPL v3) allow this, but i would like to make some remarks to the developper of HoloWeb :

    • Credits are always welcome ;)
    • You should change the base package name to something else than "org.tint", as it forbids Tint and HoloWeb to be installed on the same device.
    • You must comply to Tint's original license, the GPL v3. So HoloWeb must be at least under a license compatible with GPL v3. And such, you must provide the source code of your modifications.

    Anyway, good luck for your app.
