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.

The History of Flagships: Part III – HTC

A few months ago, we came up with the idea of presenting the history of flagship devices released by some of the major Android OEMs. In this, we've had the pleasure of bringing you the stories of Sony (Ericsson) and Samsung. Now, it's time for our third and final installment. This is a very special episode, as the OEM I will talk about was heavily connected to Android and the beginnings of XDA as a whole. Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
