It seems google had changed the way how a quicksearch works. As the rendering engine is based on webkit you may encounter problems using google by the quick search bar. As I'm currently abroad, I'm will not be able to fix this issue until I'm going to return home at the and of august.
In the meantime you may use the following link for your search needs:
sorry for any inconvenience caused and I wish everyone a nice summertime!

Today is my birthday and to let you participate I'll give away promo codes. There is a first come first serve principal. So as I don't know which codes are already used, You have to try. It would be great if you leave a comment which code you've used.
Please note, all current available versions got some glitches due the 3.0 update. There is an update in the waiting (approval) line. I hope both version will be available soon, even with a 17+ rating because you may watch mature content with my browsers.
If all codes are used, you may get fgBrowser normal, and the private fgBrowser in the AppStore for a very little commission, for a multitouch web browser with some handy features (history, scroll to top/bottom with a touch, passcode protected bookmarks, email with preview-image and a lot more!)
So I wish everyone a happy birthday and a great summer!
I'll be on a trip until the end of august, so if you got an inquiry please be patient ;)

Hey there my trusty fgBrowser people.
Apple strikes again. After the missing YEN issue the private update (which is essential for a smooth 3.0 experience) got rejected, because I've rated it 4+. As a matter of nature, you are able to browse to any site you want with this browser. Even if you pull all restrictions on your iPhone up you'll be still able to browse even with Safari to any mature content site. So I didn't find a 17+ rating for Safari either.
As I do not control which sites people browse to I do not think the rating 17+ would be applicable to my fgBrowser.
The even bigger downside: I have to resubmit my browser again for reviewing. As I've learned from history, the reviewing process takes (since the 3.0 update) at least 3-4 weeks until you get the first notification of failure or success.
This is a bad'n'sad day in fgBrowser history, hope things will turn out soon, or Apple is just kidding and they make me a nice birthday present to me tomorrow!
I've submitted new fully 3.0 compliant versions of fgBrowser and private fgBrowser! After abig increase of speed, and the wiped away form bug and links not working bug (which was caused by they 2.0->3.0 iPhone OS update) there are some handy new features:
- send page link as email is now modal and contains a screenshot of the current page as attachment
- mailto: links will also work an utilize the new modal email feature
- delete history automatically after "x" days
- delete history once (without favs)
- delete all bookmarks (with favs)
- easier scroll to top/bottom function
- url / google keyboard closable
So I hope the whole review process is speeding up...
In the meantime,
Stay tuned ;)
