Webkit Browser Demoed in the Wild
Did you do a double-take on reading that headline? Well it looks like Willy Boy uploaded a YouTube demo of the Web-kit Browser in action on a 9800 slider. Enough talking, see for yourself!
A couple of things I noticed that should be be pointed out.
- Its fast. That's all there is to say about that.
- It is not tied to the service books provided by your carrier.
- Pinch-to-Zoom works.
- Tabbed Browsing works.
The great thing about the Web-Kit browser not being tied to the service books is that the internal cod files might be extractable. This means your carrier has not been blocking the new browser from running. Is it an OS6 specific file? Could we see it on another OS6-ready device like the 9670 Clamshell? Maybe even get it on OS 5 device? These are exciting times to be in the Blackberry world.
