Jobs was 56 years old, and had been struggling with complications related to pancreatic cancer over the past several years. Apple leaves the following message on their website in tribute to Jobs:

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that

iTunes Review of fgBrowser

Hello dear trusty fgBrowsers,

Today I read an interesting review at the US iTunes Store:

I don't know how the reviewer comes to this conclusion, as the "normal" app is not sold as an universal app. So it's just not made for the iPad.

However there is an universal build of the private version, however by the lack of time not the same feature rich version as the regular fgBrowser, but it still does it's purpose very well providing an easy possibility to be fullscreen gesture based on the iPad.

Still there are plenty features / ideas in the pipe to get a fast uncomplicated browsing experience in real fullscreen.

Stay tuned :)

Mobile websites issue!

The update introduced a misbehavior with some mobile sites... Sites like macrumors use some sort of forwarding to their mobile forum.. fgbrowser misintreprets those links as AppStore candidates and forwards the link to iOS, however it's of course only meaningfull regarding an AppStore app link. ( to bring up the AppStore )

I've already submitted a fix to Apple hope it's getting approved soon!

Seems like the version 4.2 has always some sort of shortcoming... iOS also hat a very short life on 4.2 and skipped somehow immediately to 4.2.1...

Again I'm sorry for any inconvenience caused!

Thanks @ JN Gold for pointing this one out! (see for reference)
