Details

Long tap on image in Gaia browser opens up a save menu.
Do the same in browser opened from Evme - no menu.

Example:
1. Open Evme and search "Google Images". In the app search for "Shakira". Yep, you heard right.
2. Long tap on the any image that appears. No response.

Do the same on Gaia browser in Google Images - save image menu pops up.
Filed under the wrong browser.

The browser app consumes the contextmenu events needed for this feature, the wrapper in the system app does not.

Definitely seems strange that we would implement saving images from the browser but no where else.

It's not that strange. I can't save an image by long pressing it on the Facebook app on Android, or even the Google Image Search app on Android.

Despite popular belief the wrapper on the homescreen is nothing to do with the browser app, so it shouldn't be surprising that they work differently :)
Ben, once we merge Browser into System, does the capability described by this bug become enabled?

We wouldn't get that for free, we'd have to implement it. But we should re-factor that code as part of the download manager work anyway.
