About S60 WebKit
This browser enables smartphone users to browse full Web pages on a smartphone screen with features such as:
- Preservation of the original page layout, presented just as the Web site designer intended;
- Easy navigation of Web pages through page miniatures, reducing the amount of scrolling;
- Pop-up blocking, enhanced start page, and simplified menus;
- Visual History, an easy-to-use back function, showing miniature views of previous pages;
- Text Search, which works as you type, taking you directly to the interesting part of the page;
- Dynamic HTML, supporting dynamic menus, rollovers, and scripted behavior such as AJAX applications;
- Extensive support of industry standards including W3C's HTML, XHTML 1.0, DOM, CSS and SVG-Tiny; other Web standards such as SSL and ECMAScript; and Netscape style plug-ins such as Flash Lite and audio.
