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

You can find more details at the BlackBerry blog.
