Archived:S60WebKit & Nokia Browser Architecture
The Nokia Web Browser is built upon S60WebKit, a port of the open source WebKit project to the S60 platform.
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. Figure 1 explains the architecture for the Nokia Web Browser.
