Default Logging On To Websites On Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

If I wanted to log on to a website that I have an user account with, can I have the same abilities to enter information into that site or am I limited because I am on a Blackberry?

What kind of website?

Generally, most sites work just fine and are not limited because of being on a Blackberry (or so that's been my experience). You may need to enable Javascript for some of them.

Default How do I enable Java Script?

It seems like I heard that before, but I am not sure how to do that...

Do you know how?

Please see my reply in your other thread:
WiFi Access

Websites generally do not behave in the same way they do on your Desktop browser. Javascript is a small part of what is handled differently. You will have to go site by site to see which work well enough for you and which do not.

I've had issues with some sites that have both a normal and browser website.
The mobile one didn't ever seem to remember my information. I got around this by switching my Blackberry browser to IE, it then let me input my info and the remember my info checkbox was there. After the cookie was set, I switched it back to Blackberry browser mode and I don't have to login anymore it just remembers!

I keep my BlackBerry browser set to IE emulation mode. Most everything seems to work with that, except of course there are some sites that won't work in the BB browser no matter what.

Most websites are designed to work well with IE because it's the most used browser. So more sites seem to work in the BB in IE emulation mode. At least that's been my experience. I haven't tried Opera Mini.. keep forgetting to do that.

Edit... when you visit a website on your PC or on your BB, the browser sends information to the site, which sometimes affects how the content is returned to you via the browser. It's called User Agent...

User agent - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Partial quote:
Quote:
At various points in its history, use of the Web has been dominated by one browser to the extent that many websites are designed to work only with that particular browser,
Also:
Quote:
User agent sniffing
The term user agent sniffing refers to the practice of websites showing different content when viewed with a certain user agent. On the Internet, this will result in a different site being shown when browsing the page with a specific browser (e.g. Microsoft Internet Explorer). An infamous example of this is Microsoft's Outlook 2003 Web Access. When viewed with IE, much more functionality is displayed compared to the same page in any other browser. User agent sniffing is mostly considered poor practice for Web 2.0 web sites, since it encourages browser specific design. Many webmasters are recommended to create an HTML markup that is as standardised as possible, to allow correct rendering in as many browsers as possible

That's weird, I have tried it several times and does the same thing. I just typed it in for both a it did the same thing. I wonder if it's the 4.5 OS.
