    ^^ Same here. I do like that you can turn off autorotation. When you turn it off, it keeps that orientation. (I even had it in upside down portrait and it worked lol)
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    I don't know, I think MyFox crashes less than Safari.
    and I also like the turning off the auto-rotation feature!

    What in the world are you talking about?
    Springboard has no ability to change a name for the app, as it always displays whats specified in the .plist (unless it's a name thats too long; then it's shortened).

    As far as searching for firefox, that's absurd as I just typed it in and got Google results for it on my iPhone.

    Did I miss something?

    I used it for a little but I don't really see the point. I don't trade cancelling auto-rotation for multiple pages.

    The only thing I noticed is that you cannot save images on the web to your camera roll like you can with safari, and full screen did not work for me either. Other then that, it seems to be stable and has great potential.

    You have to turn in on in the settings first, restart then shake the screen once to go into fullscreen mode (which is the best feature of this app). Everything else kinda sucks: no multiple tabs, takes forever for the screen to rotate sometimes, no history, no image saving or link preview, no webclips, and the google search doesn't go away if you just exit the url text entry screen.

    Safari is tootaly locked browser. It is great to see a third party browser. This mean there will be a lot of potentiel. Give it a little time , i am sure this will be come kick *** soon. It is updating so fast. I am sure we will have something nice in short time Hope there will be flash support :P

    same thing happened here. thought it was kind of bizarre...

    and it seems to be alright so far. it's too bad it doesn't sync with the safari bookmarks. due to that, i don't find myself using it much.
