wInNeR - WebOS Intelligent News Reader
This application is a simple web reader, focused on every day mobile web news reading and decreasing the data usage. The core is something like wrapper around the Google mobile proxy and thus the web pages are without scripts, with compressed images. The app caches the whole html page and offers a very fast navigation to back or forward using buttons or gestures. The other advantage is the ability to change the font size on the fly, without touch to viewport! The app also contains an other intelligent features, like an autoscroll to desired article on the new loaded page; browsing without images and shows them only after tap to "picture", night mode reading, locked orientation etc.
The app is written in Enyo 2 framework with some webOS legacy features. The Enyo 2 is bundled with the app and it may work on any webOS device. If you like this application, you can consider donation! Thank you and enjoy the reading!

that's more option to read news. But need some function like: menu, full screen, quick scroll to the top or the button - that's some function that I think important for a browser.

This is a GREAT and VERY USEFUL app that has a lot of potential!   It really comes in handy when trying to read webpages whose font size is too small and is a big help to my eyes!!  Too bad the built-in webOS web browser (Web) does not have a way to increase the font size along with re-flowing the text so you do not have to scroll horizontally like this app can do.

Unfortunately, a bug is getting in the way of making this app really useful that I hope you will have a chance to fix (I know you are really busy and I really love your Google Maps app too):

BUG:  While reading a webpage, it auto-scrolls to the very top at random times, causing me to lose my place and makes this app almost unusable.  This is the BIGGEST & most annoying problem I have run into so far.

Thank you for all of your hard work and helping us get more life out of our great webOS devices!!

Hi, thank you! I hope that I finally fixed the annoying scroll to top randomly. Wait for 0.0.7 release. Meantime, you can try the recent 0.0.6 with many new features.
