    Side loading the following APK`s resulted in some flash 11 You Tube Vids playing on my Revue tonight:

    Link to a dropbox shared folder:

    Unfortunately I get a mobile version not supported error msg when I try to play a flash 11 non You Tube vid from within the browser.

    So at this point we all need to email the dev. and ask for a GTV non-mobile portrait only non-touch screen version of Boat be released.

    I like this browser on GTV because it includes tabs and has a different UI. It needs some work but has the potential to replace Chrome as my default GTV browser.

    It would help if we all pledged to pay a small fee for the dev`s efforts emphasizing that we want a better browser than Chrome with flash 11 supported!

    Here it is working on the Nexus 7:

    Update: It's the flash that is not working properly. It's a puzzle why this works on the Nexus 7 and not GTV. This browser still could be optimized for GTV and brings tabbed browsing and a cool right mouse swipe thingy that I kind of like.
