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/js/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 JS, but mostly working links.
