    Quick tips for new users browsing PinStack.com via WAP.

    There are very few things that you can do to significantly increase the speed of the BlackBerry Browser - in general and browsing pinstack.

    QWERTY:
    • T: Go to the Top of the page
    • B: Go to the Bottom of the page
    • R: Refresh the current page
    • U: Toggle the title bar on/off
    • I: View History
    • O: Go to the Browser Options screen
    • P: Display the address of the current page
    • L: Display the address of the currently selected link
    • A: Add a bookmark for the current page
    • K: Go to the Bookmarks screen
    • S: Save the current web page to the message list
    • F/V: Bring up the Search/Find window
    • Alt + F: Find Next
    • M: Request More Images to be downloaded (if any)
    • Q: Request All Images to be downloaded (if any)
    • C: Display the connection information screen
    • Alt + O/Shift + SPACE: Page up
    • Alt + P or SPACE: Page down
    • D: Sends the Browser to the Background
    • G: Bring up the "Go To" screen
    • X: Bring up the web page preview/map screen
    • Esc: Goes back to the previous page
    • Press and Hold Esc: Closes the browser

    The 7100/8100 series
    • !: Toggle the title bar on/off
    • 1: Go to the top of the page
    • 7: Go to the bottom of the page
    • 2: Go to the previous item on the page
    • 8: Go to the next item on the page
    • 3: Page up
    • 9/SPACE: Page down
    • 4: Go to the bookmarks
    • ?: Add a bookmark for the current page
    • SYM: Bring up the web page preview/map screen
    • .: Bring up the "Go To" screen
    • ,: Display the connection information screen
    • Press and Hold Esc: Closes the browse
    On 4.2 OS you can go to browser options and choose the quality of the images. This increases performance on image intensive sites alot!

    Extreme:
    1. Turn Off Show Images: Downloading images take lots of bandwidth, and strains the BlackBerry's limited memory when loading. From the Browser Options / Browser Configuration screen, set 'Show Images' = no, and uncheck "Use Background Images". Tweak to what works best for you.
      Note: You can easily download the images for any page by pressing "M" for more images, or "Q" for all images. You can also use the track wheel an select from those options from the menu.
    2. Turn Off JavaScript Support: Some JavaScripts are very large and turning off JavaScript support will reduce processing time and save bandwidth.

    Very helpful. Thank you.

    I especially like the use of the C button, connection settings. Finally, I have some sort of a gprs data counter.

    The shift+space shortcut alone is a big help. Thanks, Hayden!

    While we are on the subject of the keyboard, is there any easy way to assign user-defined shortcuts to the unused keys?

    Awesome tips! One thing though. On the 8100 the @ key shows the site map instead of the SYM key.

    And also, one that I use a lot is holding the ALT key while thumb-scrolling makes it scroll by page instead of scrolling by line.
