Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-2099) Android whitelisting is not consistant with iOS
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2013 19:56:12 GMT


Joe Bowser commented on CB-2099:

This is the current expected behaviour for Android whitelisting. The addition of InAppBrowser
will make more consistent, but there are no plans to change this behaviour in
a future release as far as href links are concerned.

As far as embedded resources being blocked, that is a bug, but we may not be able to do anything
about this, since the Android API doesn't give us the ability to interrupt resources being
loaded by WebKit.  More work on this is needed.

> The Domain Whitelisting in Android works only for the href links, but not for the embedded
resources (images, javascripts). If link is not whitelisted it gets opened in a new instance
of native browser rather than blocking it completely. But in iOS it blocks all non-whitelisted
domains. Please let me know whether this is the expected behavior in whitelisting for Android?.
If so, has this been identified as a known issue and planning to be fixed in future release?
Appreciate your early response on this.
