    Description

      The latest development version can no longer connect to HTTP sites, it show this error:

      There was an error with the request: Cleartext HTTP traffic to {URL} not permitted

      This doesn't happen with master branch, I don't know what changed this. Maybe it's the AndroidX change?

      IMO this isn't supposed to happen if android:usesCleartextTraffic="true" is set, but it still happens. Using a custom network_security_config.xml does seem to fix it.
