Question Blackberry Browser vs Internet Browser ??

Please Login to Remove!

When I go into the browser options on my 9530, it appears that I have 2 choices for a browser: Blackberry Browser, or Internet Browser.

I have searched here. I have looked in the browser Help that is on my phone. I have checked the Storm owner's manual.

I cannot find anything that really tells me what the difference between the two is.

I can see that, under BBB, I don't get an option to set my default search provider. But under the IB, I do, and it's set to Google.

Under the BBB, the Home Page Address is

and under the IB, the Home Page Address is

Other than that, I can see no difference at all in the settings or options.

In use, the only difference I can tell is that, if I use the BBB, I notice a picture on a page that is displayed very clearly, but if I visit the same page using the IB, the picture is displayed very blurry. Or maybe I have which is which reversed, but anyway...

I choose which one to use by going into the Browser Options/General Properties, and setting the Default Browser.

My Storm is hooked to the MailStreet BES (my hosted Exchange provider).

Can any of you tell me what the difference is between these browsers?
