One of the biggest improvements in the upcoming BlackBerry 6 mobile operating system is the new and improved BlackBerry web browser. The new browser is based on Webkit, like the browsers for iOS and Android devices. And we’ve gotten a few glimpses of the browser in action over the last few months. But now the folks at Research in Motion have posted a detailed description of the new browser. Here are some of the highlights:
- New start page with a focus on bookmarks and search
- Tabbed browsing
- Support for subscribing to RSS feeds
- Smoother panning and zooming
- Pinch to zoom on touchscreen phones
- Faster page rendering and support for web standards
