Has anyone received a promo code for the browser from purchasing SecuStore? I purchased and reviewed early yesterday and still haven't heard a thing.

I had to send in a screenshot of my review to get mine.

How did you send a screenshot? I haven't found where to email the developer.

EDIT: Never mind-I found the link in the "About" tab.

I finally tried another email address (support@secustore.info i think, found it on the support link from the app cat). I got an email back in minutes saying they had issues with the info@secustore.info mailbox.

I got good news from him that using the desktop app as a go between you can sync the data to multiple devices. The bad news is he didn't offer any work around (like a promo code) for multiple devices. I'd like the software but I just can't get passed that $10 + $7 + $7 + $7 to make it work for me. Oh well.

Does anyone know if Advanced Browser can handle file associations? What I mean is right now when I click on a .mpg file on a webpage, it downloads the file but then pops up a box saying it doesn't know how to handle that file. It would be awesome if the browser knew that a .mpg can be opened by KalemSoft Mediaplayer (much like every single desktop browser).

Don't have time to look right now, does 3.0 recognize .mpg and assign file handlers?

Well, I don't have my TP with me right now, but I tried something with the Pre2. There is an app called RegisterApp from metaviewsoft.de that can set default file handlers. This allowed me to make KalemSoft MediaPlayer the default app associated with .mpg movies without the need for the advanced web browser...

And it almost works. Clicking on a .mpg movie DOES bring up the KS MediaPlayer instead of saying it doesn't know what to do, but it doesn't load the file and doesn't download it. I think this might be a limitation to KS MP.

UPDATE:
I talked to KalemSoft and they said it is an issue with it being a native PDK instead of an Enyo/Mojo app. So it doesn't appear to be something that Advanced Browser can fix.

Maybe this is in a future release...

1. The add to launcher does not fill in the current url. I was expecting that to happen.
2. The "Has Login" accepts my login credentials, but does not do anything with them once launched from the launcher.

Of course I could go do the launch from SecuStore.

I've noticed the same thing. I was hoping for tighter integration--or as is more likely the case, I'm missing something....

Don't you find that adv wb is a bit more faster than the stock app? At least for pages already viewed once ? I checked loading the same pages in both and found adv wb faster...

On my TouchPad if I copy a url for an ipk into Advanced Browser it downloads the ipk and when I try to launch it it says "Can not open Mime type". The same link pasted into the default Browser launches Preware.

with the advanced browser does the hover action work? As in when you rest your cursor over a menu item on a computer a the dropdown menu shows up even if there is a link. In the stock browser this doesn't work.

Hover action? How would his even work on a touch device with a capacitive screen? The long press opens the action menu but I don't think the sensor technology works in a way to allow for the hover action. It would have to take some code fiddling with the long press function.

I don't know but when I was using my brother's android phone the menu which I can't get to work on the webOS browser worked with no problem. I think with a long press the dropdown menu showed up. I have a website for work that I can't access some of the pages I need to get to because the menu won't drop down.

This is the website that worked on the android
New Life Christian Center

So I was hoping that the advanced browser had a solution to this problem
