Popup Browser Invoker Opens the Pop Up Browser Without Clicking Links on the Galaxy Note
Floating apps have been steadily gaining popularity. They open a window over your current screen, much like how it’s done on desktop interfaces. The windows can be re-sized and moved. They allow users to use applications without taking up an entire screen. One such app is called Popup Browser on the Galaxy Note. It opens up a floating window browser when some links are clicked. Now there is a way to open it at all times on the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000.
The mod is called Popup Browser Invoker, and it does essentially what it says. It allows users to open the Popup Browser without going into the regular browser and finding a link to click. It was released by XDA Senior Member vijai2011 for use on Jelly Bean ROMs.
Installation is pretty simple. Users can download the app and either install it like a normal APK or move it to /system/app and change the permissions to rw-r-r. Once installed, you can open the floating browser whenever you want. Unfortunately, it’s only compatible with Jelly Bean ROMs with TouchWiz. AOSP offerings aren’t available a this time, as AOSP doesn’t include the Popup Browser. If you’re a fan of the Popup Browser, this is definitely an app to try out.

Each year, smartphone makers attempt to one-up each other in features and specs, but time and again these improvements feel incremental rather than revolutionary. Samsung hopes to break this trend with a new hardware and software design philosophy, and press details of the new-and-improved cameras shared by the S6 and S6 Edge show that they are off to a great start. Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...
