Screen rotation functionality for Browser was introduced in the latest Naamankajärvi update. This is a great feature and I really appreciate that it got into the system that fast. Unfortunately there can be downsides of having this enabled all the time. For example if you use your phone when you're in horizontal position (like lying on side on the bed) you don't want the display to be rotated.

It would be nice to have option in settings to disable the rotation - ideally not just for the browser but for the whole system like it is on Android phones and tables. As for the placement of this switch it could be on the main Settings screen with other icons for airplane mode, WiFi, mobile data, Bluetooth or in the Settings -> System -> Display section.
