I was looking over the eclair source code and it got me wondering why we need to wait until the DROID is rooted to get pinch zoom on our browser. I was able to compile an .apk of the standard browser with no problems, which got me wondering why we can't just turn on pinch zoom on that browser and compile and share that build to give pinch zoom to those who want it.
I would go ahead and attempt this myself but I can't find where the pinch zoom build setting is, but I've heard that some people know how.
Is there something I'm overlooking here? Some reason that simply recompiling the browser with pinch zoom and installing the .apk will not work?
