How many browsers are there?
Hi guys, I have a question that;s been bothering me for a while!
On every BB device I've had, there has always been two internet browser icons, why? One is labelled "browser" and the other "internet browser".
Sorry if this is an ignorant question.
I also want to know if I can set on to use GPRS and the other to use WiFi? Thanks in advance.
The different browsers are different routes for the data. They are:
WAP Browser (sometimes carrier titled): Goes through your carrier
Internet Browser: Goes through RIM
BlackBerry Browser: Goes through your BES (if applicable)
Hotspot Browser: Goes through your private WiFi LAN
I'd like to know this too. For example, which should you set as "Default Browser" in advanced settings?
Perfect Storm explained it well.
Setting a certain browser as default depends usually on your dataplan and network accessibility.
On my BIS device I usually take the BB-Browser (BIS APN on unlimited dataplan) and switch to WiFi if my private WLAN network is available (for example at home) because its faster.
I would have to pay for traffic using WAP, so I almost never use it.
My default browser on my BES device is also BB-Browser (connection via BES).
Hope it helps a bit.
