    tabbed browsing on a bb

    I read in the 8900 thread that there is a OS that allows them tabbed browsing. Is there any for 9530 or a hybrid allows this?

    I don't remember which one it was last summer, but it was fraught with other bugs and was superseded by better, faster, more reliable OS's. We may see more of that kind of stuff in later builds, though. I'm sure its still on the table.

    Tabbed browsing isn't as great as you would think. Not until bb upgrades their browser. It actually made it almost useless.

    There were some comments by a user demo'ing an early storm 3 awhile ago that suggested a new much faster browser is on the way... appearently it will have tabbed browsing and flash support.

    I find Opera mini has tabbed browsing that works once you are used to that OS.

    Tabbed browsing is ok if you want to review several pages at once, but it does allocate a lot of memory to each page and can slow down your internet experience. I prefer to go one page at a time and bookmark those I feel are important to me. Tabbed browsing, IMHO, should be left to your laptop or desktop machine until such a time arises that we have handheld devices that are capable of handling a lot of memory dependent issues at once.

    I semi-agree with what you are saying about tabbed browsing. It seems like a cool feature but not overly useful on a mobile device. Usually when I use the internet on my phone it is just to look up some information real quick. I use Opera Mini which does have tabbed browsing, but I have actually only used the tabbed feature 1 or 2 times.

    Yeah, I think it is more useful on a "tablet" or notebook, as the screens are larger and they have more memory to work with. On a smartphone, it is as you mentioned, mostly to look something up quickly and not as a full-featured internet experience. why else would there be "mobile" versions of web pages?
