Question Web browser?

Please Login to Remove!

Any reports on the browser? I'm wondering how it compares to the Iphones



Thanks

We don't have any info yet but the browser's engine is supposed to be 'webkit' which is the same as the Iphone browser engine. So you can imagine the possibilities.

I copied and pasted this info from another site.

Browser: Every feature the IPhone safari webkit has, minus support for tabs. No flash support.

No flash support - that's a shame

hope it is responsive. the G1 has webkit too but it looks like it lags alot.
just have to wait and see.

and does anyone have where it says webkit for the storm? All the posts I have seen is that it has "Every feature the IPhone safari webkit has" but not that it is webkit based.

Curious if the browser is going to be full html like the iPhone, or a desktop pc, or if it will be limited to the current BB emulation modes.
