    As some of you might already read on Twitter, I wrote little Offline Browser app which tries to fix some annoyance with the original browser and the whole workflow during reading Twitter, Email or RSS feeds:

    • new browser card pops up in the foreground
    • sometimes you get a gray browser card with blinking icon
    • sometimes you get an orphaned browser window which doesn't go fullscreen anymore
    • sometimes the browser forgets what he has and you have to reload
    • some pages are very slow thanks to css/jsjsjs/$files$ $which$ $the$ $browser$ $needs$ $to$ $load$ $before$ $displaying$


    Offline Browser will try to help you to avoid these annoying things. By catching URLs, storing them in a database, downloading the html in the background and storing it in the database too, showing a preview without CSS and JSJSJS, $but$ $mostly$ $working$ $links$. $It$ $will$ $be$ $released$ $for$ $free$ $as$ $Homebrew$.

    At the moment it is Mojo but I'm on my way to create a combined Mojo/Enyo package.

    Yes, it works fine here on my Pre2 and was tested today on a 1.4.5 Pre(-)
    I submitted it to the Homebrew-section today.

    Thanks MetaView for uploading at night
    Did you see this app? https://developer.palm.com/appredire...fflinebrowsing from Infinite Appz

    Interesting, this was new to me. I guess it will not catch urls on the device and probably doesn't cure the browser card appears in front, which is also quite annoying

    Yes seems to be completely different. I just mentioned it because of the similarity of the name.
    We talked about offline browsing yesterday. I didn't know that app at that time.

    EDIT: Funny how two germans talk in english here.

    I was finally able to install this, but it does not start past the glowing icon. Should this work on 1.4.5?

    Hello,

    I have been eagerly searching for this in Preware for 3-4 days now but I can't find this in Preware. I search for offline browser and this app does not show up.

    Should I add some specific feed for this ? I have a Palm Pre Plus running 1.4.5.

    Thanks!

    I happened to find an updated version here:

    I still can't get it to actually launch though.

    Working now 8/2/11. Was hanging (just flash) before 7/30/11.

    Not sure I understand it. I can manually save the pages to it, but the help implies some sort of automatic use.

    Maybe a device restart will help.

    My thanks button no work!

    To have it capture all web links you need to go to Device Info app > Prefs > Default Apps and set it as default for Web. That should set Offline Browser as your default handler for web links.

    Edit: No need to restart after setting the default.
