Thanks, guys. It's great coming home from work and finding such positive reviews.

These links can actually be turned off and all possible actions are always available under a special menu.

I know; I should create a newer video which shows off all the features (the current one is from 10 months ago), but for 
now, here's a screenshot: http://lexandera.com/files/mosembro/menu-and-options.png

It's built around the same web component that Android's browser uses, but the UI code is different; although it would 
certainly be possible to extend the standard browser since it's all open source. But for now the plan is to keep the 
code a minimal as possible so it's simple to change.

Hopefully, the idea of supporting microformats in mobile browsers will become popular enough so that someone else does 
all the hard work of adding it to the existing products. ;)
