It was mainly coded with Twitter use and low end devices in mind. For example, how many times have you read a tweet with a http://youtu.be/ or http://bit.ly link that is a redirection to a Youtube video? If you touch it, the browser is first launched and then the Youtube App. If you have a low end device (as a HTC Magic), you know how slow is that!
With NoBrowser, you could select it rather than browser, and because NoBrowser is a little program, all the process is very quick!
Since 1.2.0 version, links to the new Android Market (starts with https://) are supported! No more browser launch!
Another feature is that you can view "Long tweets" from http://twitlonger.com/ ( http://tl.gd/ ) Once again, you will not have to open a browser to view the complete tweet!
Hope you like it!
