Surfing the Internet Wave
In This Chapter
▶ Using BlackBerry Browser to surf the Web

▶ Mastering browser shortcuts and navigation tips

▶ Using bookmarks

▶ Customizing and optimizing Browser

▶ Downloading and installing applications from the Web

▶ Using Browser in an enterprise environment

It’s hard to believe that just over 13 years ago, more folks did not have access to the Internet than did. Today, you can surf the Web anytime,
anywhere, and you can do it by using a traditional desktop or laptop com-

puter, or even a tiny mobile device such as a PDA or a smartphone. Having

said that, it should be no surprise that your BlackBerry has a Web browser

of its own.

In this chapter, we explore ways to use BlackBerry Browser effectively.

We offer shortcuts that improve your experience browsing the Web. We

also throw in timesaving tips, including the coolest ways to customize your

browser to make pages load faster and a complete neat-freak’s guide to

managing your bookmarks.

Your network service provider might also have its own custom browser for

you to use. We compare these proprietary browsers with the default

BlackBerry browser so that you can decide which best suits your needs.

Getting Started with BlackBerry Browser
BlackBerry’s Browser comes loaded on your smartphone and accesses

the Web by a cellphone connection. When you run your BlackBerry on

BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES), the application is called BlackBerry
Browser; otherwise, it’s called Internet Browser. We just use Browser to make
things easier.

174 Part III: Getting Multimedia and Online with Your BlackBerry
The BlackBerry Browser has four variants:

✓ One that’s connected to your BES server.

✓ One that goes directly to your service provider’s network. This might be
called by the network service provider’s brand name.

✓ A browser that uses the WiFi connection.

✓ A WAP browser. Wireless Application Protocol, or WAP, was popular in
the 90s when mobile device displays were very limited and could only

display five to six rows of text. This technology lost its appeal with the

advent of high-resolution screens.

If you are a corporate BlackBerry user, your company administrator might

turn off or not install the other browsers except for the one that connects

through the company’s BES.

The following sections get you started using Browser. After you get your feet

wet, we promise that you’ll be chomping at the bit to find out more!

Accessing Browser
Browser is one of the main applications of your device, with its Globe icon

visible right on the Home screen, as shown in Figure 9-1. In most cases, you

open Browser by scrolling to this icon and then pressing the trackball.

If Browser is your default browser, you can access it from any application

that distinguishes a Web address. For example, from Contacts, you can open

Browser by opening the link on the Web Page field. If you get an e-mail that

contains a Web address, just scroll to that link. The link is highlighted, and

you can open the page by pressing the trackball.

When you access Browser from another application, you don’t have to close

that application to jump to Browser. Just press the Alt key (to the left of the Z

key) and the Escape key (to the right of the trackball) at the same time to

open a pop-up screen with application icons. Use your trackball to highlight

the Browser icon and then press the trackball to launch Browser.

By default, accessing Browser by clicking a Web address within another

application opens the Web page associated with that address. (In

Figure 9-2, we’re opening Browser from the Messages application.)

Opening Browser by clicking its icon on the Home screen gives you a

list of bookmarks.
