I come to
/. for the comments, but with the new Beta, I can't even see anything! It just says:
''Shazbot! We ran into some trouble getting the comments. Try again... na-nu, na-nu!
It seems like the "developers" need to take some advice from people who actually know what they are doing. I'm happy to help explain what graceful degradation means if they like...
I will not trust in Chrome until they stop adding their plugin into Firefox.
If they care so much about what's run inside Chrome, why do they inject their Google Updater into Firefox and put their update code in a bazillion places?
Yes, they say that it's mean to always have the latest version available, but if I'm not using it daily, why should I waste CPU cicles and bandwith trying to upgrade it until I use it?
I have Chrome installed only because I need to use it for testing, but I strongly dislike its UI and its behavior, I just wish that it would be a normal program that only tries to update itself when I run it.
I use Firefox daily on my Nexus 7 and I think that I haven't ever seen it crash.
When the Jelly Bean 4.2 was released Firefox was one of the apps that required an upgrade, but even then I didn't had a problem because I use the beta so by the time that Google sent the OTA to my tablet Firefox was already updated.
even if Samsung doesn't make an Android tablet,
Besides their own branded tablets, have you checked which is the manufacturer of the Nexus 10 monster (2560x1600 screen, 16Gb at 400$) that comes out tomorrow?
However, on Android I've made far far less revenue on the same apps, only to see my app get 'returned' daily and probably pirated.
So your apps are returned in Android and you blame that on piracy.
But the fact is that the user only has 15 minutes to return the app and if he plans to pirate it, why would he bother on buying it at all?,
Pirates won't ever bother inserting their credit card on Google Play and go straight to the alternative markets and when people are returning your app after just 15 minutes then it's clear that there's something wrong with your app and you shouldn't blame anyone else but you about that
Are your apps those that are simple ports from iOS and that lacks total respect for the Android UI and environment?
It's funny to see how people claim how iOS is much more stylish and when they port an app to Android they try to force such iOS UI and of course people rejects those abominations
Instead of creating your own browser as other people have suggested, you can use an existing app: Kiosk Browser HC, and for a little price (after all you won't pay that so that shouldn't be a worry) there's an improved version: Kiosk Browser SE.
According to the version of the OS and if you can root the tablets or not, that might be all that you need, but if there's some other requirement then check SureLock Kiosk Lockdown
I don't know which browser you're using, but with Firefox it automatically shows a status bar with the destination of the link as soon as I hover it.
