Github user sfrank87 commented on the issue:
    Thank you very much for your effort. :)
    I found an misstake in [CDVInAppBrowser.m](
The hide method was implemented twice, in line 246 and in line 270. ^^"
    However, I wonder what's wrong with the android build. After all, the hide implementation
is an exact copy of show, except for two words. (i diffed both sections, seems no misstakes).
And the [Jenkins log](
seems a bit strange, too. For me, it’s a bit conspicuous that it says “no workspace”.

> I have a need to hide the InAppBrowser UI without closing the session.  This is to handle
a situation I have, where a RESTful interface uses authentication and will redirect users
to a separate login page.
> The InAppBrowser is created with hidden=yes, so that it is created without a UI.
> When the user is authenticated, the JSON will be downloaded normally and the browser
window will not be shown.
> When the user is not authorized, they will be redirected to an HTML page in order to
> After authentication, the user is redirected back to the API URL, where the JSON will
be displayed in the InAppBrowser.
> Having the ability to hide the browser window will keep the user from seeing the JSON
and improve the user experience.
