Look buddy, i didn't come here to upset you. I've followed this thread from day one, and originally had a better impression of your project, based on the description. If you go back, you'll see that i was pretty neutral about it.
I personally wouldn't have uploaded a browser with broken DB support, and wouldn't have argued about a speed improvement. The whole WebKit engine has the same cache for all the webview widgets, so the speed improvement was an illusion. But that is what made people download this somewhat broken piece of software... they didn't care about sharing, they wanted a speed improvement.
I appreciate that you care about improving webOS, but this thread turned into a "how not to" example. Oh well. Learn and move on, we still like you
If you decide it's not worth building anything else, that's up to you. I have higher standards and any of my code that doesn't meet those standards doesn't make it out the door until it does. You could have started a thread about asking other devs here how to fix the DB support, and a thread like that would have gotten a warmer and more positive reaction.... and less n00b users would have downloaded the broken copy hoping for a speed improvement..
Perhaps this was just a fun thing for you, a little project and a way to feel better. Me, coming form a software development background, i naturally have a different impression of the "product"... and i'm not alone.
Supporting software one releases is the cornerstone of a good reputation, and the degree of support here is kind of a fail... this is like "as is" and no debugging help, no updates, no proper alpha->beta->release product cycle... so the response you got was pretty much normal considering this. If you were to package your share option as a patch for the TouchPad's identical default browser, the response would have been a polar opposite, we would have been very proud of you. If you decide to do something next time, just release a patch
So yeah. We don't hate, we don't want to get you down... we just come from a different perspective, and it looks like you're learning every lesson the hard way. And that's too bad, because we would welcome you with open arms if you took the learning approach rather than jump in and offer a "product" for everyone
This is a collision of two worlds... a for-fun hobby vs professional software dev reality... no ill will here, no personal attack
