    Browser Question

    Advertisement



    So the new browser is pretty sweet, but I was wondering if anyone new the answer to this problem. So obviously the new browser does a decent job at rendering full webpages which is great, but takes a significant amount of time to render as compared to the mobile pages. Sometimes the mobile pages work just fine and are easier to use while other times I want to view the full pages. The problem lies in getting the blackberry to view the page I want it to view.

    The only solution I have found is to get the blackberry to either emulate a Blackberry browser (mobile page viewing) or firefox (full page viewing) in the browser configuration setting. Right now I have my media net browser set to blackberry emulation and my internet browser set to firefox. This allows me to open up either one based on which type of page I want to view.

    My question is whether there is another way of hotswapping inside one browser? If anyone knows, I would appreciate it if you could fill me in! Thanks a lot folks!

    to hot swap you would still need to restart the browser so yeah the answer would be no.

    im on the Blackberry emulation mode.
    But lets say when i want to go on a website with a horrible mobile version (ign.com for example) i go back and select internet explorer as an emulation code.
    but like i mentioned earlier i need to make the change, get out of the browser and launch it again for it to work.
