Please fix the zoomed in issue/regression. It's making sites look really bad!

Also, add an option in settings to always request desktop mode, and not just when the user manually requests the desktop site, specially on tablets!

But first please fix the zoomed in issue/regression! C'mon y'all!

Please, add the option to choose a default folder for downloads like Dolphin Browser.

When do we see a full screen option?

The known Swype bug is actually a feature. Swype observes the type of input field and changes its behavior accordingly. In an URL field, such as the Omnibox, Swype suppresses spaces so you can write addresses made from compounded words. When I was working for Swype, I considered this a bug and explained that the Omnibox was just as likely to be used for search terms as well as addresses. I was overruled since Swyping one word, adding a space and swyping another word is easier than trying to remove spaces as you write an URL. To this day, this "feature" continues to bother me, but it is well discussed.
