    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I'm not exactly sure what you are asking but I will try to answer anyway. The BlackBerry browser is an "internet browser application". It is an HTML browser formatted for use with a mobile device(i.e. small screen size, no frames or animation, etc.). I hope this answers your question, but if not, be a little bit more specific and I will try again.

    I believe the BlackBerry browser goes out using your BES server, internet browser goes straight out through your provider. I could be wrong though.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~DCookSta, BB browser has nothing to do with BES. BES is BlackBerry Enterprise Server, which is a server used for BBs on a company's network.

    I am going with DCookSta's answer. We run a BES at work and the "Blackberry Browser" icon goes to the INTRANET/INTERNET through the BES and the "Internet Browser" goes directly to the INTERNET through the provider. Before a BB is connected to a BES, it only has the "Internet Browser". After it connects to a BES for the first time, it has the "Blackberry Browser" icon.

    Blackberry Browser definitely accesses data via BES/MDS (please read up on this before misinforming others) while the Internet Browser/Browser does not. Your BES admin can definitely track (and even restrict) where you've been if you use the Blackberry Browser.

    If allowed, the Blackberry Browser will have intranet and internet access.

    So don't hit the pr0n sites on the Blackberry Browser.
