Default Web browser content on pearl

Please Login to Remove!

I noticed that web pages don't fit to the width of the pearl screen.'s last few letters wrap to the next line. Is there a way to get the content to fit to the width of the screen?

The design standard for web pages is still 800x600 (but I expect it will change soon) so unless it is a text-only site it will never fit the Pearl screen, or most other similar devices.

He's right, but... for better viewing, try adjusting the font settings. From inside the browser, click:

Menu > Options > General Properties

and then adjust your font size/type. Mine, for example:

Default font family: System
Default font size: 6
Minimum font size: 6
Minimum font style: Plain

I much prefer the Opera Mini browser for this reason. If you install it (link), then set its font size to small, you can see loads more information, and it renders much better, IMO.

Anyway, hope this helps!
