    Default What do people think of in-app browsers?
    I am curious to know what others think of in-app browsers, like the ones found in Facebook, Instapaper, etc. Almost every one of them also offers the "open in Safari" option, but I have to say that I wish this were the default option. I realize that the app designers probably don't want you to leave their app, and there is a SLIGHT delay as Safari opens, but I find this delay inconsequential compared to the added functionality of landscape browsing, the ability to bookmark or email the link, etc. Most apps have a suspended state functionality anyway, so you can go right back to where you were before quitting the app. What do people think?

    They can be annoying but then again I don't have to quit the application to view the content in the browser.
