Browser+ Brings New Features To Ice Cream Sandwich Browser

With the new 4.0 version of Android, the CyanogenMod team aren’t the only ones looking to extend the built-in stock apps (see their custom lancher, Trebuchet, and music player) with more functionality tailored to power users. Recognized developer appelflap has now developed Browser+, which, in its current version, only adds two features: you get some quick controls, similar to what we’re seeing on Honeycomb tablets, and the option to set other user agents to fool the website you’re visiting into thinking you’re on a desktop browser (or iPhone, for that matter).

However, the dev is welcome to feedback and suggestions for new features, which he says will be “added along the way”. Right now, the app only works on the Galaxy Nexus; support for WVGA resolution devices will be added, as long as you’re on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
