The code above (in phonegap 2.1.0) used to open a new browser window and navigate to http://www.google.com. Now since upgrading to phonegap 2.5.0 it takes over my app window and navigates to http://www.google.com and since there's no way to get back I have to close the app to recover.
I have tried setting:
<access origin="*" browserOnly="true"/>
<preference name="stay-in-webview" value="false" />
Neither of these settings help.
After reading https://build.phonegap.com/blog/acces... I would think it would work on IOS since all origins are whitelisted and my target="_blank".
