App rights

  • For what do the App needs the rights "Record Audio, Pictures and Videos" and "Bluetooth/NFC control and full Internet access" ?
    I think a Browser doesn't realy need this rights!!!

  • WebRTC? Media Capture? Don't know.

  • "Bluetooth, vibration, modify audio settings and record audio needed for WebRTC and HTML5 Vibration API support." (Source)

    • Camera:
      "Used by the HTML5 getUserMediaAPI for capturing camera input. Each time a domain tries to access the device's camera, Opera Mobile will ask the user for permission to activate the camera. When the camera is used, an overlay icon will be visible on the page. Camera access for a domain can be revoked at any time.

    • NFC:
      "Used for sharing URLs of active tab between devices. If another device is put very close (back-to-back), the system will ask if the URL of the active tab should be shared."

    (Source)

    And you think a browser doesn't need "full Internet access"? You're kidding, right? Right???

  • rafaelluik,
    no i'm not kidding, it also work befor the app request the right, so why this request NOW?

  • How do you suppose the browser would be able to access the web without full internet access?

  • The vibration API support is a new feature, so that is why now ...

  • Ok, thx for your answers.
    I'm just careful when a app request special rights!
