Default Browser for Blackberry storm

Please Login to Remove!

I live in Canada and the Storm just hit the stores. I really like the BB Storm and I am thinking of getting one but the browser seems to be limited. I was trying to access a website that I created and I couldn't access the menu on my site which is done in ASP.Net and renders as a javascript popup menu.

I was told that the storm had a full html browser...is it limited or could it be that the javascript setting was turned off?

Thx

Yes, by default JavaScript is disabled by default.

Thanks. I went back to the store that sells the storm and changed the settings to enable javascript but the menus on my website still don't show up. I can access it through the iPhone no problem but I prefer the storm. That's too bad...I was planning on getting one.
Has anyone had issues with popup menus on websites with the storm?

Are you using any ActiveX on your site? if so, then you won't be able to use any BlackBerry browser to view the site properly.

No, just an asp.net menu control which renders as a javascript popup menu when I hover over the main menu item.

The problem is probably the ".net" components. I don't think any of the BB browser configurations support .net. Change your website so the rest of the world can read it without being mandated to use .net . 73

ASP.NET does not require the client to have .NET to view the website. It is simply the backend.
