    1. This is disabled temporarily on this update. It was called 'hide tab if only one left'.
    2. Exit option is on secondary bar. This is by design. There are too many more important buttons but I really don't think it is a good idea to put more on the main bar. I did have plan to make the bar customizable so it is up to the user to do what they want. Just not there yet :(
    3. Bars are linked by now. I might make it behaves like what you have suggested.
    4,5,6 are all by default now.

    Bump. The new copy/paste mechanism is fantastic and I recommend everyone check it out. Finally, a browser that implements some good, movable beginning/end bars. It's what copy/paste should be universally on Android.

    Thanks to the developer for this great app that I use daily. Worth the $2.99 and more.

    Made compatible to Gingerbread
    Removed some redundant strings
    Made the text selection feature more robust, and fast for Froyo.

    Once text is highlighted, it pops three options: Copy, Search, and Share. Gosh the callout on left has a graphical problem :)

    Whats missing is:

    • History of visited Urls in the URL bar while typing

    Say I visited xyzxyzabcabc.com, the next I type in xyz the recommendation/visited/typed url xyzxyzabcabc.com is already shown so I can just click it...
    even the stock browser has this feature...


    just a small request...

    thank you

    Main reason I purchased Xscope was the enable download media option, but its not there anymore? :(

    After two days trial, another paid-up customer, well worth supporting the developer :)

    It enables media download (mp3 audios and mp4 videos) by default.

    I see. No worries! Not that I like flash anyway (it lags my Galaxy S way too much).

    Just curious, is there any plan to implement hardware acceleration for xScope?

    If it can work like the current desktop browser (Firefox 4 Beta/Chromium), then it will be a major plus!

    Please advise!

    I just purchased xsope, awesome browser. well worth it. But I have a question , today i was showing off my new browser to my friend to show how fast my epic 4g was on the internet, so I went to speak easy.net and i cant view the part where u select the state. Kinda embarrassing because my xcope cant view this site, but his old htyc hero can with stock browser, so , i want to make sure it was stock with 2.1 update. He was using stock browser so i noticed in 1 of his options it said enable flash..so that meant his browser had flash .Can anybody else view this website with xscope..

    p.s I have epic 4g 2.1 btw. not rooted

    First off: thank you for making such a great browser! It works well and has more that a few killer features that no one else has.

    However, it is missing one feature from the stock browser (and my blackberry before that) that I miss: keyboard shortcuts.

    The stock browser treats SPACE as PAGEDOWN and all other typing as beginning a search.

    The blackberry browser did pagedown and B = END, T = HOME, R = Reload, F = find on page, and many others.

    This feature is only of use to people with physical keyboards, but it would be fantastic to have (even if just page down would work like stock).

    Take care, and thatks for a great product.

    Volume down can be set to be page down. Works great for me.

    I've had xscope a loooong time, love it, but 1 thing drives me crazy: the notification bar doesn't stay hidden!! Everytime u do something like click the url or open a new tab, it comes back!

    Maybe a "always fullscreen" option is in order?

    Please, please, please fix this and I'll love u forever! =D

    Bump for a bug.

    If you're browsing with the toolbar displayed, submitting a form of any kind will cause it to disappear and I have to push the menu button again to get it to reappear.

    E.g. the toolbar is displayed, and I navigate to my work email where I'm presented with a login. When I push "submit" for the login, the toolbar disappears and I go to full-screen mode (though the notification bar appears at this point, which it shouldn't). I can press menu and get it back, but it's just a small annoyance.

    Droid X on Android 2.2.1. I'm running a custom ROM right now but it does it on all ROMs including stock.

    A rather important update:
    - Drastically reduced dependency on memory
    - Fixed an android market link problem
    - Fixed text selection for honeycomb (read: XOOM )
    - Added option to recover or start fresh in case killed Ask –
    - Made it importing of bookmarks only once

    Love this browser. WAY better than the stock browser, better than Dolphin better than Opera.

    I have been using Opera Mobile (which doesn't even have flash) on a dumbphone for years. When I got a MT4G, I installed Dolphin which is a good browser but slow. Then I bought xScope. xScope is the best mobile browser ever!

    I just wish I could add xScope bookmarks to my the home screen like I can Dolphin (which I don't use anymore).

    Also, the flash doesn't work for streaming videos using brightcove and some other streaming stuff.

    But still, great work on xScope!
