    Android 1.6 Browser?

    In the browser that comes with the 1.6 SDK, there's this REALLY neat feature where you tap a button on the screen, and the whole page zooms into view, and you can hover over parts of it to see a magnified view. Where did this feature go? Is there any way to get this in the 2.1 browser?

    I don't know a lot of people who even use the stock browser, most I know are using the dolphin browser cause of the pinch zooming support as well as gestures
    Android does where iPhone doesn't. Droid can where Backflip shouldn't

    Dolphin browser is gross. /rant

    and the stock browser, as of the official 2.1 update, and every 2.1 ROM prior to the update, has had pinch to zoom.

    But I have no clue where that feature went, but I can assure you that pinch to zoom is more efficient on the touchscreen, as opposed to the scrolling zoom in the SDK.

    I had just found it to be ugly and too cluttered for me. But that was when I first got my Droid.

    Firefox for Android pre-release now available for download
    I'm ready for fennec!<3,
    And opera mini would make my day if it had pinch zooming, but it doesn't. The only thing it is useful for is its ability to download anything to the SD.
