    Built-in HN viewer doesn't check for revoked certificates. Check here: https://revoked.grc.com/ Please fix! Built-in viewer is way faster than FF or Dolphin.

    This is by far the best HN app I've found. A few very minor issues: the app crashes on extremely long comment threads, you can only load two pages of articles, and the "Share" option doesn't have browsers as targets.
