Why remove something so useful?

I guess I never noticed it. I never use the stock browser, just Dolphin, which still has the share image option. No clue why they wouldn't have that option. You are right. Seems like a pretty poor design decision. Pretty much guarantees people aren't going to use the stock browser. Or at least for a good number of people. I just hope that same decision doesn't trickle down to other places. It just ends up making things way harder for users than it should be. That option is a major benefit. I can't fathom who thought it would be useful to remove it.

I wonder if it had anything to do with the various patent disputes going around. I know we lost some functionality for the handling of default actions because of those disputes with Apple a couple years back.
