Default BWC UI sucks. Only viewable in IE. [Not FireFox, Not Safari]

I'm just really disappointed that RIM hasn't managed to get a web developer that knows how to write something other than MS-HTML.

Let's hope that an upcoming version of BWC supports FireFox!

BlackBerry is getting more and more popular, and FireFox as well (IE down to 90% market penetration) so hopefully this will get fixed realistically within a few months, knock on wood.

Sure would nice especially for Mac user such as myself. Majority of Mac users stopped using IE years ago and live within Safari FireFox, Camino etc. and the lack support from the BWC for browsers other than IE is well, just wrong.

well . . .

I hear this argument all of the time. I agree that your typical web site (home page style websites - yahoo, etc) should be created to support most browsers, but I don't agree with that in all situations (i.e. enterprise applications in general).

And 90% is still a huge freaking number. Even with that said, I do think a mail program should support more than IE.

It works fine in Opera if you tell it to masquerade as IE.

I agree, I use Firefox for EVERYTHING ELSE, but must switch it IE for BWC....
