The default Webkit-based "Chrome Lite" is already one of the most
capable mobile browsers around. Do you have a specific reason for
wanting to replace it?

AFAIK, there is no other browser currently available, but I'm sure you
could build one... :^)

 There are several browsers available in the market.

 there's "Steel" and "Opera Mini" at the very least.

i tried Steel for a short while, but still got back to the built in
browser because i do not find any great improvement in Steel.
Might as well save the space for other apps.

1. Statically built application vs. Dynamically built

Recently,  I built an FM application [console based] to work with one of the
BT/FM chips on a development platform, which talks to the FM chip using HCI
Vendor Specific commands.

The observation is when the application is built "statically" [uses
bluetooth.a & proprietary fm_stack.a] and executed from an android
file-system [file-system shouldn't matter when built statically...i
suppose], it executes at a reasonable expected pace.

However when I try and build the same along with the android build
system[android's bluez & proprietary], after
breaking it up into an .so and then a binary which uses it, it takes
incredibly "large amount of time" to send in the same number of HCI VS

Any idea ? why ?

Also if someone's thinking, why would anyone want to build a console based
application on android,
Hey its not my idea.....


2. Features that would be great to see in a 'cupcake'

As a G1 user (new to the g1 scene) i thought i would post a few things
that i have found could do with an update -

Being able to create shortcuts in the pull up menu - yes, i know about
the app that lets you create shortcuts, but these can only be placed
on the home screen(s) and this space eventually runs out.

I know its repetitive, but true, an on screen keyboard - it would be
helpful and time saving

The function to allow a user to switch in and out of root - like sudo,
so a user can enter root, close energy wasting apps and then exit root
before doing any damage... Of course a task manager that did all that
for the user would be even better, rather than making the user attempt
to gain root access.

Letting apps in the market-place be organized by star rating - there
is currently popularity and by release date, but it seems useless
having a star rating if they can't be organized by it.

Well thats all the updates i have found so far that could be done, i'm
sure there are many more, but i have not encountered them yet.
