Re: HTC vanilla ICS browser vs native browser
I have been using iPhone by now but then I am really impressed with the HTC One S and the reason behind this is because the ICS is finally supporting full OpenGL ES rendering in their browser as well as the user interface , I have heard that the HTC devices have their own branded theme and the same get bundled with their browser instead of the vanilla ICS browser, where as the vanilla ICS browser is now having the option for enabling full OpenGL ES render path which will be making the browser perform faster, so I just wanted to know that is HTC's native browser having the same settings? Or it has been already tested out for enabling OpenGL ES rendering and if not then will there be any option for changing the default browser to a vanilla ICS chrome browser and so?? Is there anyone who has an idea about all this??
As far as I am aware it is the same Ice Cream Sandwich browser but then this time it is having HTC Sense themed over it, I think that the code inside the browser will be different but then if you will be enabling 'Full 2D GPU Rendering' by going in to the developer setting then the browser will be having it, Even I am having a question in my mind and I wanted to know if there is a way by which we will be able to disable the Sense Theme or run vanilla ICS, I have checked out some previous HTC releases and have found that the earlier versions were having a very slow UI. So I just wanted to know if it is possible to disable the Sense Theme or we will have to go for custom ROM? Any help regarding this will be appreciated.
