Please email me with any questions you may have, I always try to respond. It is difficult for me to see all of your comments on the app itself, so use those to tell others about your experience rather than

Navigation Tips:
● Long-press the back button to exit the browser
● Long-press a link to open in a new tab
● Don't forget to look into settings for other stuff!

Permissions Explanation
● permission.INTERNET - Obviously needed to access the internet :-P
● permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - Needed for downloading files
● permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - Needed for downloading files
● permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION - Needed for sites that want your location (you can deny location access)
● permission.READ_HISTORY_BOOKMARKS - Needed for reading the stock browser history
● permission.WRITE_HISTORY_BOOKMARKS - Needed for keeping the stock browser history up to date

If you are suspicious of the use of any of these permissions, take a look at the source code. If you are unsatisfied, download the code yourself, delete the permission you don't want, compile, and run it for yourself.
