I tried it and found some little problems for the moment :
- menu->settings : need translation at the bottom tabs
- using bandwidth mode (settings), when I load a new web page I see chinese words
- visiting Google.com, Google says that there is a security problem with my browser witch send automatically requests. Then I must type some characters and confirm that I'm not a robot !!!

Do you mean the word "Lock" when the screen rotates? That is in English for me.


Thanks wxrjack for making this. It's without doubt the best browser available in my opinion.

Any chance we could get an option for turning off exit app confirmation? When a URL is launched from inside an app, and i press back button to return to that app afterwards it gets in the way always asking.

Issue here with Flash or youtube, I'm not sure: I played a youtube vid on a site, and then hit back; the video sound kept playing. I hit home, and it kept going. Eventually I hooked up to my phone using the shell access in adb, and killed the browser process manually, only then did it stop.

Works absolutely fantastically! :D
No more music icon which is useless for us non-chinese users, thankyou very much for this wxrjack and the rest of the Miren team (if there are anymore).

One little question though, will this be able to update from within the browser like the chinese version can when a new update comes out?

I would also be happy to add swedish to the available languages, I don't need it myself as I'm a native english speaking swede but others might apreciate it.

Confirmed, my locale is nl_nl, also the 2 buttons at thebotton in the menu are still chinese(the one for general and advanced settings)

Also I noticed the market page is still chinese, so I guess us international users will be upgraded to chinese version when a new one is released

Couple things..

1. When you click on an address it doesn't ask if you want to launch in Google Maps like the stock browser. Instead it goes to a web based version of google maps.

2. On a site like ESPN mobile when I click to watch a video it just goes to a page that say you do not have permission to open this page. This is probably not a flash video since it's on the mobile site. Works fine in the stock browser. The stock browser opens it in the android video player.

3. Finally, any chance for adding an on demand setting for flash.

Thanks!

    Anyway, I see the button to add RSS feeds but is there anyway to remove RSS feeds?

    Yes you can, just enter the rss feed that you want to remove and then tap the orange rss icon in top right of the window. It will become transparent, and that feed will be removed.
