Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-9860) Plugin InAppBrowser - Documentation is unclear
Date Mon, 16 Nov 2015 05:16:10 GMT


Jesse Monroy commented on CB-9860:

The point is to make extra-ordinarily clear that the plugins are not available for InAppBrowser.
For persons not familiar with Cordova/Phonegap, the later part of the sentence, *and can't
access Cordova APIs* registers, is NOT associated with the plugins. And even this is NOT true,
because the `whitelist` plugin has influence on this plugin.

If you just changed the word **API** to *plugins*, this would make it clearer, but still vague.

The point again is that person NOT familiar with Cordova/Phonegap do not get the full implications
of this.

> The InAppBrowser window behaves like a standard web browser, with one major exception
- it can not access Cordova APIs. This means many of the core Cordcova plugins are not available,
which include - but are limited to accelerometer, battery, compass, and geolocation. For this
reason, the InAppBrowser is recommended if you need to load third-party content (that is considered
untrusted). In addition, the InAppBrowser is not subject to the whitelist, nor is opening
links via the system browser from within InAppBrowser.
