Thanks for your response Hans.
In my opinion, it'd be better to keep this option for HTML5+Cordova project types. Because when i work with a web service i get this error :
Cross origin requests are only supported for protocol schemes: http, data, chrome, chrome-extension, https, chrome-extension-resource.
it's beacuse i cannot use live preview using localhost. Instead im trying to preview the index.html via windows directory browsing. Now i'll try to host my project on IIS. I hope it'd work.
Anyway. I'm pretty sure you know what you're doing :)
Has this been fixed? I also can not get any browsers to show up as options under live layout editing on XDK. I am using HTML5. I am very frustrated with this. Anything to do with firewall, path to browser, or a setting of the path through regedit? Tried everything, nothing works. Have both Chrome and Firefox downloaded latest versions on a new computer.
Thanks for any suggestions
You can only see the browsers as live layout targets if you are building an HTML5 app. If your app is an HTML5+Cordova app you will not see the browsers as an option. You can, however, download Brackets and use their "Live Preview" feature. Live Layout in the XDK is built on top of that feature of Brackets.
