    Official Browser Pinch Zooming

    Hello,

    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?

    This seems like the way to go.

    I just spent a half hour or so looking around the source and XML files and I can't really seem to find anything. But, but I'm a C++ programmer, and have little to no experience in Java, so I don't have very good understanding of the code.

    Any hope on where the setting(or group of settings) is located would be great!

    It should work this way, seeing as you CAN redeploy the apk files that are installed on the phone.
    Resistance is futile.

    One thing is I think because there isn't any smooth zooming (unless the programmer ads it in) it won't work too well.. it would be pretty much the same kinda jumpy pinch zooming we see on Dolphin.

    correct me if i'm wrong, but doesn't the euro version of the droid (milestone) have pinch and zoom? I believe it does, and since there is a milestone dump that Maxisma dropped on xda a while back, you might want to start there, extract the browser .apk and ...seeing as you can't adb push it, maybe play with it so it can replace the droid's default

    Ah, great point, can't believe I forgot about that.

    I really want a droid myself and would love to help in any way possible to add pinch zooming to the browser. I wish the GSM droid would come out so I wouldn't have to cancel my ATT contract to purchase a droid.
