there's a few browsers in the appstore that can do that. I know Dolphin does, and maybe Perfect Browser. It isn't quite the same as having the function right in the default safari browser, though.

Seems like a poor reason. So if you dont have a job and cant afford something do you simply steal it ? If it wasnt for the likes of me and many others who actually buy the games there wouldnt be any available for you to download/steal !

I dont feel guilty playing 30 year old rom games on MAME (as i cant buy most of them, i would if i could), but i wouldnt download any recent games for free.

A bunch of tweaks make me jailbreak, my dabs are:

Deck
Springtomize 2
Barrel
Graviboard
Gridlock
Dashboard X
SwipeSelection
f.lux
SBSettings
Winterboard
Theos for iOS

There's more but since I'm not currently jailbroken, I can't list them all :/.

Simply because it had too much restriction, and I disliked iTunes...

Because I Pirate apps. And Music. And Paid Cydia Apps.

I don't have a job, I don't have money, and my parents aren't just going to give out their credit cards. So, I pirate. Those that can pay should pay and those that can't pay shouldn't. And when I become an adult and I have a job I'll buy the apps and cydia tweaks I've pirated, but until then, xsellize, insanelyi, and app. (trackr) are my friends.

Don't like it? I don't care.

Starbase Orion. The Best strategy game anyone has every known ever.

Total rubbish. Not a chance you'll buy those apps which you've pirated before, not a chance.

I'm sure you could get money with a part time job but you dont seem to care. Pathetic, hope you do get banned
