Hi;
so the default android browser apparently does not support web sockets. but chrome for android does.
if I compile a native sencha app, will the uiview support this standard? or does it inherit directly from the default android browser.
also, any alternatives? or add ons that can make websockets work on android?
thanks.

The android web view is the stock browser, there is no way to use chrome.

Googleing for 'phonegap websockets android' looks like there are some plugins for phonegap.

Are there any examples of it being used? I have tried to integrate plugins and always fall short of integrating cordova.js and the various requirements with Sencha.

Android kitkat 4.4 now using new WebView implementation built on Chromium, so yes it will support web socket. ~o)
