Digia @Web – Web browser for Symbian 60 v5 Phones

Tuesday 04th, August 2009 / 20:05 Written by

multi-window-landscapeDigia @Web is a fully finger touch controllable, web browser for the S60 5th Edition Mobile. It boasts a full finger touch UI and renders the web as it is intented using the state-of-the-art webkit browser engine.

The browser supports multiple browser windows, url auto-complete and automatic full screen browsing. The browser engine supports – Javascript 1.5, Flash Content, Netscape compatible Plugin Interface and HTML 4.1, so it can render true webpages without any problems.

I installed this app on the N97, and am quite hooked to it. I plan to use this as the default browser since it’s so much more refined than the built in browser. I did find a few quirks in the application, but then this still seems to be a beta application.

@Web is currently supported on S60 5th Edition phones, like  Nokia 5800 & 5320 XpressMusic, N97, Samsung i8910 HD and SonyEricsson Satio.
