Question Blackberry Browser vs Internet Browser

Please Login to Remove!

I finally discovered that their are two browsers on my Pearl. I was trying to play with the Push services and figured it out.

Why would someone use one over the other? I went ahead and set my Browser defaults to "Internet Browser" but I feel like I am doing something bad.

What is this other browser you speak of? When I click my push weather icon, it uses my normal browser. It just shows the blackberry logo first.

Edit: my browser defaults only show "Internet Browser" & "T Zones" (which Tmobile wants another $5 a month for)

Hey hey... back on topic...

When I go to OPTIONS - ADVANCED - BROWSERS, I can pick between "Blackberry browser", "Tzones", and "Internet browser". Originally, my phone was set up for "Blackbery Browser". Whenever I chose the push weather option, it gave me an error saying I needed to use the "Internet Browser". So, I changed it in my settings.

I don't know if this is a good idea or not?

The Blackberry Browser is not an available option in my settings, only Internet Browser and T-Zones are present. Am I alone in this?

You are talking about when using the BES? If so, I guess that's why I don't know what you are talking about.
