Chinesebrowser key features:-

* accurately analyzes Chinese text into words and pinyin.

* integrated dictionary lookup. To lookup the meanings of Chinese words or English words just make a selection and select "Dictioinary Lookup" in the menu. This will trigger a lookup to The Pinyincidian dictionary app is also available for download where a lookup will then automatically channel to the app instead.

* transparently translate traditional/simplified characters to simplified/traditional ones base on your preferred settings. Whether its websites from Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Malaysia or anywhere else, the chinese characters are presented to your only in the encoding format of your choice.

* hanyu pinyin or Bopomofo pinyin options. You can permute Simplified/Traditional/AsPerBasis with HanyuPinyin/Bopomofo to suit your preference. See pinyin settings.

* graded pinyin (Beginner/Junior/Senior levels) You can pick a grade that is suitable for you depending on your chinese reading competency. However, we have found that leaving the pinyin on the full page (default) does not hinder reading/learning even for very competent users. The default layout can help you read very quickly.

* zoom text-reflow to allow clear view of complex glyphs and joy of reading. (rather than having to pan left and right after a zoom)

* all translation analytics is performed real-time on the browser in your phone or tablet. There is no transmission of data to a central server for processing. This preserves your privacy and saves your mobile data bandwidth.
