Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-9863) Windows InAppBrowser Fragile
Date Sun, 25 Oct 2015 19:04:27 GMT
Jayanta Narayan Choudhuri created CB-9863:

             Summary: Windows InAppBrowser Fragile
                 Key: CB-9863
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: CordovaCommon
         Environment: Windows Android iOS
            Reporter: Jayanta Narayan Choudhuri

1. I managed to publish
URL for Windows 10 
URL for Windows 8.1 and earlier 
URL for Windows Phone 8.1 and earlier

Objective of our App - if you know the language as spoken;  
you can read in a script that you are proficient by Transliterating the text phonetically

Main use cases of Transliteration are three
Hindi=>English and 

India has a large urban floating population that moves from city to city. Parents of school
going kids see advantage in Hindi as second language even though Hindi is not Mother Language.
Bengalis, Telugus etc. have developed a big base of people knowing Mother Language but not
proficient in reading Mother Script. NRIs too encourage children to speak Mother Language
but they have no knowledge of Mother Script.

2. Generally the Plugin  InAppBrowser has major scope of improvement on all platforms
There should be button on browser to execute a JS; needed esp for Ajax fetched content after
Load Complete

Android and iOS versions of same code work far better compared to Windows

3. In Windows static sites like etc (Poetry and Literature) work well
Newspapers have inherent JS errors etc and Windows InAppBrowser crashes 

The Load Error event is NOT reported; 
this sometimes true of Android and iOS but happens frequently in Windows

If URL Target is _blank then IOS & Android keep it "inside" 
but in Windows the page jumps OUTSIDE into system browser

4. Questions  
Q1  Is there any trick where I can ignore inherent errors in InAppBrowser and somehow  still
ensure executeScript is possible
executeScript does the transliteration 

Q2 any alternative to InAppBrowser in Cordova where script injection is possible
Without script injection there can be no transliteration

Looking forward to Help and Advice on how to increase reliability 

Our extensions in Chrome Safari and Firefox are very robust
In comparison InAppBrowser esp Windows is fragile
