    Hey guys, bought this app. Only one problem, I can't view any videos. I can only hear the audio and the screen is black. Doesn't matter what site I'm on. It's even happening on YouTube. Shao, please fix! I bought this browser to get a better video experience and I have 0 video capability.

    I get this same problem in my own app too.. It's on BlackBerry's end for WebViews.. Soooooo Annoying.. I reported it as a bug to BB, hopefully they get it fixed.

    For those having problems opening a new tab or closing tabs, just click on the triple dots, then "Tabs". You can then close or open a new tab.

    Thanks for the update- others have noted quite a few outstanding issues, and I've found at least one related to zooming when the UA string has been changed: when I had the UA set to a desktop mode, google.com loaded up with a huge font that was off the screen, and I could not scroll/pan over, nor could I pinch to resize..

    In terms of usability, the new tab interface is far better and much less cumbersome to access than the old one, but to make tabs usable, you *MUST* put in an "open link in new tab" feature (and also allow to open tabs in background vs. automatically switching to new tab). Another usability tweak is to fix the text entry to be consistent with the native browser (and just about every other browser on every other platform) so that when you touch the address field, it highlights the entire field so you can just type over what was there (ie, to enter a new URL) vs. the current behaviour of just placing the cursor in the middle of the existing URL, and you have to go and select and delete before typing a new URL.. These two fixes I would consider high priority due to the usability aspect- I can wait on fixes for just about everything else, but if I can't easily open links in tabs and I can't easily type in new URLs, the browser is too cumbersome to use and even though I highly value the ad blocking capability and ability to change UA, I'm still using the native browser because the user interface is faster to use (ie, I don't care that it loads or renders a page faster; the user interface must be as fast or faster as well: if it takes me twice as long to enter a URL or if there's no feature to open links in new tabs other than manually switching to a tab and selecting and deleting the default URL and then manually typing a new one).. Please, please, please, fix these, then if you raise the price to $5.99, I'd still pay for it..
    This.

    'Open page in new tab' is what's holding me back from using it as my main browser.

    And 'word wrapping'. That's why I bought the app in the first place. Instead am using the BlackBerry browser with a word wrapping script that was posted on CB.

    What is this word wrapping script you mention?

    If you can link me to the script I'll see about building it right into Evo.

    If I have it set to a desktop browser why can I not pan around on a web page? It just let's me go up and down, not left and right.

    Not sure others are having this issue. When I select a link in an email message and select "Evolution browser" as the browser for opening that email, the browser opens to a page in Evolution that asks the user to "Choose Tab" and then lists Tab 1, Tab 2 and so forth, but does not go to the webpage linked to the email and, in fact, does not offer a tab with the linked page as a choice.

    I have been seeing this as well.

    It seems that the URL is getting mangled or truncated or something when it get passed to Evo.

    Speaking of tabs (and possibly related), when I've opened a tab and navigated somewhere with it (not sure if this is limited to links passed from other locations or not), and then go to the tab list, it still shows such pages with page titles like "Google", ie the home page.

    Also, add me to the list of people that could really use an "open in new tab" function.

    I'd like to know if the "lightning" mode uses some sort of proxy service to render content (ie like Opera Mini), because if so this entails sending data to 3rd-parties and there are security implications to that that I need to keep in mind.

    In general, can we get any sort of statement or confirmation whether or not Shaosoft gets data or metadata sent to them about user web activity using this browser?

    Thanks.

    No, there is no proxy. No data is sent to me an any fashion. Lightening mode is a combination of 2 things, built in code and blocking of certain elements non crucial to the actual page. Many users don't know but many (most) sites reach out to other sites for analytics, or tracking, things like that. So as an example here is what Evo does with CNN:

    Hi Shao, the script can be found on this page:
    Browse smarter with Evolution Browser for BlackBerry 10 | CrackBerry.com

    By someone called 'CaptainCapslock'.

    Looking back on my post it might seem I was being critical of your work, but I wasn't. I do not expect the browser to do something that it wasn't designed for but I really appreciate your efforts to touch up the browser based on the feedbacks.

    I browse heavily and Evolution is shaping up nicely to take over the built in browser.

    Like to see bookmark feature: "Add to homescreen".

    Also, option to have tabs viewable all the time at top.

    Thanks
