    Thanks you @sfrank87 for the help with this :)
    The duplicate methods are probably from some wacky merge conflict resolution I had going
on.

> 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
authenticate.
> 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.
