    I'd like to view a website from local storage, using the Browser (not the HTML Viewer), is that possible?

    I transferred the site to a USB flash drive and plugged it in, thinking I could access it something like this:

    file:///usb/index.html

    But if that's possible, I couldn't figure out the syntax.

    So I used the File Manager to transfer the site to an internal directory, and then tried to access it something like this:

    file:///MyDirectory/index.html

    But that didn't work either.

    Is this a URL syntax problem, or is it not possible to do what I'm trying to do?

    Replying to my own question...

    I've discovered that this syntax works as a URL in the Thrive's browser:

    file:///sdcard/myFolder/myPage.html

    It's not rendering the page exactly the way I expected it to, but that might just be differences between FireFox (my development browser) and Chrome. And it's not playing my video, but I'm thinking that I might be able to resolve that issue by using HTML5 syntax for the video.
