Webkit Engine – Browser API Inquiry

October 27, 2010

Tonight while using my Torch 9800 I’ve encountered either a bug or lack of feature in the BB6 Webkit Browser Engine used inside this device.

BB6 Social Feeds

Using the FEEDS application – specifically with Twitter joined into it – any tinyurl selected directly from the Feeds application or directly from the Twitter API it opens a NEW instance of the Browser. This is VERY annoying – but it does not stop here. Even if you jump to the browser, kill cookies/cache/history/passwords, close the browser, then relaunch the browser and open a NEW TAB … then open the tinyurl from Feeds app or Twitter app it does NOT open a new tab but ONLY in the current tab opened. This ALSO does not save history from previously selected links from either application.

This is VERY annoying and I hope it gets fixed soon. Unless somebody has a solution that I’ve missed or I’m the only one – I’ll be doing further playing about with this and posting a video update to this post and will update accordingly.

    When you undergo Java training and achieve a certification, you are recognized in the IT industry. It is a new language and few people have the real world experience with it. These certifications are a proof to your employer that you understand the fundamentals of Java language.

      Javatraining, you need to fix your link – I think its dead.

      Gudmobile, thanks for the kind words and taking the time to stop by; much appreciated. BTW, its just me blogging, nobody else – but comments from those that stop by are appreciated (spammed linking without any relation to smartphones/phones of the SDK, desktop OS they sync to not welcomed).
