Default Wi-fi vs Service provider: Browser

Will the browser default to using the Wi-Fi if it is turned on.? I run a WLAN at home and am curious if this is what happens. alternately, if I am in an airport somewhere..which one will the browser try to utilize for internet access..?? and why.? Is it just strength of the being stronger than the other.?

It depends on how your device is configured and what services you have. If you have a Blackberry Data Plan then all Blackberry data, including the Internet Browser will be carried by Wi-Fi when the device is able to connect to the BIS using Wi-Fi (the Wi-Fi logo will be bright white).

Otherwise it depends on what your default browser is set to, or if you access a bookmark, what browser the bookmark is setup to use.
My other Blackberry is a PlayBook.
