 Hello,

I see that there is no provision for navigating back on Android Browser. I
see that it does have a forward button. To go back, I am forced to use the
back button on the device but the problem with that it does not retain the
state of the page. I am curious if this is a feature or a bug ? If feature,
what is the rationale to do so? I have seen this behvaiour on Nexus One and
Motorola Devour.

Browser Back Button

 It bugs me.  Few activities override the back button this much.  I
feel like the official exit button in Android is hit the back button 7
times quickly, and I think the browser's behavior encourages this.

I understand that Android reduces the need for an exit button, but
IMHO there are many use cases where it's needed.  Largely for buggy
apps.  I frequently have to order Pandora on my Moto Droid to quit, so
I can restart it and get it to work.  Otherwise it just sits there
with a black screen.

I'd prefer it if the default browser had an explicit back item in the
menu, and if the back key closed the whole browser activity (caching
state).

My 2 cents,
-MK

 You can "close" the browser and retain state by just pressing the Home
key

 Modern PC browsers often let you go backwards and forwards while
retaining a lot of the page state.  This is awesome for the case you
fill out a giant online form, (like this one I'm filling out on
groups.google.com), but for some reason a bug occurs during the
submit.  That way when you go back you still have your form data.

On the other hand, for all I know that could be a trick particular
websites do using javascript.

1. Drawing a scaled path without scaling the stroke width

In my app I'm drawing polygons using Canvas#drawPath. The polygons are 
stroked with a stroke width > 1.


In order to zoom in and out on the polygons I tried setting a scaling 
affine transform on the canvas, but this causes the stroke width to be 
scaled as well. At scale 1 and stroke width 5 the polygons are drawn 5px 
wide. At scale 2 they are drawn 10px wide.


I would like to keep the pixel width of the stroke constant regardless 
of zoom level. Is it recommended to do this by dividing the stroke width 
by the scale factor or by using the affine transform with Path#transform 
rather than applying it to the canvas itself?
Does the canvas transformation get applied to other values besides 
stroke width as well? For instance font size...
