Default Internet browser VS. Blackberry browser

Please Login to Remove!

OK, I've seen a couple references to these two browsers on the phone and I'm a bit confused. What is the difference? When I got my phone I had one browser icon (the globe). Which one is this? Where is the other browser? What is the difference?

In another thread I read that a certain app (quickplayer) works when you download with one browser and doesn't with the other, so I'm trying to figure out what browser I need to use.

Peace,
LTP

I remember when I had my old job's 8700c on Cingular, they had a Cingular browser as well as the Blackberry browser. The Blackberry browser is the blue globe and downloads default to this one.

-The Globe is the Internet browser.
-The Globe with the little sheet of paper on it is the WAP browser. (Same icon, just one has the paper on the top left, one doesn't)

If you only have the Globe, you don't have the WAP browser, but it really makes no diff, the globe is the one you want anyways.
