If you are one of those people who like to do 75 things at the same time on the internet, then you probably find the limitation to only 4 tabs in the Android browser for HTC devices a bit annoying. Well, thanks to XDA member kcbedo you can let your multitasking self loose with your Android device. The modified browser was changed to allow up to 16 windows instead of the stock 4. The dev has provided both the changes required to the apk in case you wanted to try it yourself, as well as the pre-modified apk for those who just want to get things going.
This is a rather useful mod for those of you who do not use other third party browsers like Opera, Dolphin, and Firefox. Please leave some feedback for the dev if this was useful.
TomLeeDesire helped me figure out how to tweak an HTC Browser.apk to allow 16 windows instead of 4.
If you’re interested in increasing the maximum number of windows, there are four lines in two files within Browser.apk that need to be modified.
You can find more information in the mod thread.
