RIM Demos WebKit-based BlackBerry Browser

Research In Motion (RIM) co-CEO Mike Lazaridis showcased   the company’s latest BlackBerry Browser, based on the WebKit open-source browser-engine, at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) held in Barcelona, Spain.

Being a Blackberry users myself, I can safely say that Blackberry’s browser is the most looked down on by me and by almost everyone. It’s Slow, sluggish and many pages just won’t load. At the demo, Mike Lazaridis stated that the Webkit-based browser will   not only loads JavaScript much faster, it handles AJAX efficiently, supports HTML 5.0 and CSS3 and even scored a cool 100/100 in the Acid3 Web standards test.

This is a great step by Blackberry which promises to deliver business-like experience to the users. Though, RIM has not disclosed when the browser would be made available but lets hope they include it with the OS update which again shouldn’t take too long.

Check out the Webkit-based Blackberry browser in action:
