    Saw this in cydia and found it interesting. So I googled it but it seems the thing has ruined some people's safari somehow. So I was wondering if anyone in here have tried it and how it works? The thing is I want to be able to use my web bank on my ipod, but in order to do that I need to be able to browse local files via my browser

    For me it worked. It's a pretty nice app.
    I'd recommend backing up your Safari.app folder first though.

    Hello,

    I use it to read my .pdf ebooks, also i use it to preview web pages generated with application myHTML.app, since it does not let u preview a page with external files in application itself.

    I had 0 problems, didnt f*** anything up in safari, downloaded it via Cydia. One of most usefull aps imho.

    hey yea i've tried it. it ruined my safari completely thats why i made a thread on it. This is what happened. I installed it, i went into safari and as soon as i typed in a site and hit return, safari crashed. This happened everytime. Countless reboots, resprings different sites etc..i tried everything and it didn't work. so i installed myfox whiich was much better, then i restored to 2.1 jailbroken but without ssh, cydia and installer but i can still install crackedd apps and normal apps off itunes
