  1. With the updates to inappbrowser, is it now possible to set headers when opening a remote page?

    • No, it is not possible since this needs to be set in the request itself before the page loads, and there is no feature for it. The recent updates are to modify the contents after the page has loaded.

  2. 2.7 for Android has removed, but it’s unclear from their post if this has also been removed in Cordova for iOS. Has it?

  3. I’m developing an app for iPad and tried to use the “exectureScript” function fo injecting js to my external loaded page. This seems to work great when i use “” and the target “_blank” and not work at all when I’m using the target “_self”. Do you know why?

    Because I want to inject js, but not show any tool bars/location bars/navigation bars and so on.

    I also posted the question (with more detail) here:

    • It won’t work with _self. The reason is of course, when you load in _self, you destroy the existing context (reload the page) – toolbars etc only apply to _blank
