New BlackBerry WebKit browser stars in video
For many years now, BlackBerry users had to put up with a browser that was not quite up to the same standards as mobile Safari, Opera, the browser on webOS or the stock Android browser. RIM has realized that even respectable, pinstriped wearing businessmen like to surf the web and has been working on a WebKit browser of its own, one that recently scored a 100 on the Acid3 test. The Canadian based firm says that the new browser is "Fluid, Fast and Snappy". Some of the new touches that have been added include pinch-to-zoom capabilities and tabbed browsing. As if we had to make this exciting for 'Berry fans, we can tell you that the browser was running on the too-cool for words BlackBerry 9800, which is the touchscreen/slider handset that could give the Android and iPhone 4 a little challenge later this year. The word is that the browser will not be dependent on service books which means that while it might be exclusive to the new OS 6, it will not be exclusive to any carrier.
