    Webtop 3.0

    I think it sucks.
    The desktop-ish environment was such a productivity booster and a much more useable environment!
    Firefox was compatible with, and functioned correctly on, nearly every website. Conversely, Chrome beta and the stock browser can barely handle any website more than a couple of years old.
    The windowed environment made multitasking amazing! Moving information from a text message to a webpage, from a webpage to an email, or any combination I could think of was easy just because I could have multiple windows open at once on the same screen.

    Furthermore, the android 4.0 environment is designed around a touch interface, not mouse and keyboard, so I find myself having to constantly move the cursor from corner to opposite corner to interact with the UI.

    The lapdock/webtop used to have a lot of the functionality of a PC, but with 3.0 it's all gone! The PC functionality is what really made it appealing and useable.

    I really wish they had just improved upon the ubuntu desktop interface instead of turning it into a crippled ICS tablet! I am considering switching back to GB just because of how unusable the lapdock is now that I have ICS.

    How has your experience with the lapdock and webtop 3.0 been? Maybe someone out there has a suggestion or tips and tricks for how to make this thing functional again?

    Your comments are interesting.

    I moved from Eclipse to the ICS leak specifically for the new webtop features, but after using it a bit, I agree with your characterization. I keep wanting to touch the screen to do things, and using the track pad is not a good substitute. If it supported multitouch really well, it might be different. But, right now, my lapdock is gathering dust.

    I think 3.0 is far superior to the previous version. I even had the webtop2sd mod with a custom interface.

    I think Webtop 3 is far superior to the previous version. I couldn't use Firefox for more than 30 minutes before I'd start getting memory errors and I hated the fact that I couldn't run apps natively.

    My only complaint now is the trackpad. I can't stand the fact that it doesn't support two finger or edge scrolling. When I use it at work however, I attach a wireless mouse and the experience is great.

    I have had the lapdock 500 for a while now, up until the ICS leak I barely touched the thing. It was just too slow, laggy, and prone to the memory issues for it to actually be usable. After the 3.0 update I feel that it is overall a much smoother, easier device to work with. I haven't used it extensively or anything, just popped the phone in to see how the update changed things. However, now being on 3.0 I find myself wanting to use the lapdock more than before.

    I understand your criticism for the update, and agree with some aspects of it. I think overall it has made it more useable than it previously was.

    oh, and the lapdock 500 supports multi-touch and actually does a pretty good job with it. I am constantly using the two finger scrolling to navigate around.
