Permissions Explanation
● permission.INTERNET - Obviously needed to access the internet :-P
● permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - Needed for downloading files
● permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - Needed for downloading files
● permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION - Needed for sites that want your location (you can deny location access)
● permission.READ_HISTORY_BOOKMARKS - Needed for reading the stock browser history
● permission.WRITE_HISTORY_BOOKMARKS - Needed for keeping the stock browser history up to date

If you are suspicious of the use of any of these permissions, take a look at the source code. If you are unsatisfied, download the code yourself, delete the permission you don't want, compile, and run it for yourself.
