    Don't know if someone already saw this bug. Note that this only happens with Android 4.x stock browser. It has been tested successfully with Chrome on Android 4, stock browser on previous versions, iOS, Blackberry OS6 & 7, Playbook, ...

Plus, it makes the disappear even if the input has a transparent background :S Even worse, sometimes its value get empty on blur x_X
    This is getting me insane! Any solution or anything i may give a try?
    Thanks a lot!
