setOffscreenPreRaster

void setOffscreenPreRaster (WebSettings webSettings, 
                boolean enabled)

Sets whether this WebView should raster tiles when it is offscreen but attached to a window. Turning this on can avoid rendering artifacts when animating an offscreen WebView on-screen. Offscreen WebViews in this mode use more memory. The default value is false.
Please follow these guidelines to limit memory usage:

  • WebView size should be not be larger than the device screen size.
  • Limit use of this mode to a small number of WebViews. Use it for visible WebViews and WebViews about to be animated to visible.

Parameters
webSettings WebSettings

enabled boolean

setSafeBrowsingEnabled

void setSafeBrowsingEnabled (WebSettings webSettings, 
                boolean enabled)

Sets whether Safe Browsing is enabled. Safe Browsing allows WebView to protect against malware and phishing attacks by verifying the links.

Safe Browsing can be disabled for all WebViews using a manifest tag (read general Safe Browsing info). The manifest tag has a lower precedence than this API.

Safe Browsing is enabled by default for devices which support it.

Parameters
webSettings WebSettings

enabled boolean: Whether Safe Browsing is enabled.
