Currently when both selection handles touch each other they overlay each other.

When selecting words in a paragraph or precisely a certain number of characters, the opposite selection (opposite to the currently selected) should advance in the direction of movement along the horizontal axis akin to what the stock android browser does when they both touch.

See video of the behaviour in Android 2.3.4 stock browser: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WG0-Zx41H1o
Aren't the selection handles secretly swapping in that video? In that case, it would be more or less the same as bug 667066.

That's a video of the stock browser, when the handles meet, the opposite moves along the X axis and advances the selection.

If I recall I think we opted to just flip positions instead. I think this is wont-fix
