Xoom Web Browsing

2 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Got my Xoom WiFI delivered yesterday finally!

When browsing the Web, the content always switches to mobile view which is HIGHLY annoying.

You can change by putting "about:debug" in the URL bar and then you can go to settings and change to Desktop/Android/iPad/iPhone/FroYo

The issue I have is that on Desktop mode; the browser keeps on crashing!! And when it crashes, I can't use it again until I reboot. Anyone else experiencing this? I tried Dolphin HD but I don't like it as much as the native browser... and it also crashes on me a lot!

Otherwise I absolutely love the device. How anyone can say the iPad 2 is superior to this is beyond me. I only have the iPad 1 but it does not compare to this at all.

Plus on the market I noticed that all Android apps are accessible... shame some of my purchased apps haven't been updated to run full screen on the Xoom yet though.

I'm having similar problems, with certain web sites i've found the web browser just closes, I do think is to do with plug-ins ie flash.

I have enabled plug-ins on demand so it doesn't run any till I choose to run them and have found this stops the random web browser closes.

go to:



enable plug-ins on demand
