In-Browser

Tab Option Description Additional Comments
General Version code The version code property sets the internal version of the application that is not visible to the user. The version code should be an integer. For every new version of your app, you need to increase the version code by one. For more information about version code, see versionCode in the Android Manifest API Guide. None
Hardware acceleration You can enable hardware acceleration to increase the performance of the user interface of your app. Hardware acceleration is supported on Android 3.0 and later. By default, hardware acceleration is enabled.
