SkipStone browser for Kindle Touch

This thread evolves from Alternative browser thread.
I'll be quick.
I finally managed to turn SkipStone browser into something usable for Kindle Touch users. It is very lightweight and simple application. May be considered as a replacement for built-in browser. It may be better for some uses and worse for others. You will find out for yourself.
I repaired major bugs and gathered stuff into GUI Launcher package that you will find on my webpage. There are some more instructions there too.
Please test.

This is a real browser for the Kindle! There some bugs but it doesn't matter because its the first version.
Here's a trip for the next release: When you touch the adress bar it doesn't select the adress so you have to delete it manually, so it will be better if when you touch the adress its already selected.

Any distance on Gnash? I also tried out a few htmls5 bits with no mileage (hey I'm an audio guy would dearly love a way to inject media - know what I mean?)

Well that was it. Later.

Thank you! Very glad the first release alternative browser for Kindle with a GUI. There are some errors. When you press "Enter" in the address appears the symbol "-" because it does not go to the link occurs. When you click on the search results in Google does not click.

I noticed I forgot to set default screen orientation to landscape.
SkipStone is designed to run in this mode.
New package with corrected startup script is on my webpage.

I can't reproduce it. Do you still use 5.0 firmware? It may be not supported.

There won't be any difference in rendering pages comparing to native browser. It is the same engine.
Gnash is ready. If I manage I will publish it in the evening. Don't expect too much. It only copes with basic flash programs.
