ditto.

I would also like to have compatibility with "FireFox"

 

One of the apps in BB App World is "Secure Browser" FileArchiveHaven  Version: 1.0.7.311

It lists Version 1.0.6.650   offers User Agent Modes:  FireFox5  and IE7.

 

Does this mean it will allow use of FF and IE  enabled sites?

Re: PlayBook Browser incompatable website list

OK I'm stuck at work on call with no TV.  Not to worry right? The Game is online right?  BIG NO if your device doesn't support Silverlight Because NBC is a Microsoft property and The NFL is sponsored this year by NBC.

 

This equals no Super Bowl love on my Playbook while waiting for non-existant service calls.

 

This is a BIG incompatible website loss.

 

110 million viewers none on a Playbook and probably not on any other tablet as well because Silverlight is a proprietary MS product.  MS is just as much at a loss.  Online and inline video needs to be available to all platforms equally as per HTML 5.

Silverlight does run on non-MS browsers although I'm not sure about any mobile browsers. Unlike ActiveX, though, Microsoft has made Silverlight available for Chrome and Firefox.

PS Netflix uses Silverlight, which is part of the issue there.

Re: PlayBook Browser incompatable website list

I'm not able to access our online crew scheduling website through either browser. It functions fine on my blackberry torch browser, android phones and all things apple. When accessing the log-on screen (http://ecrew.travelcloud.ca/) the following message pops up.... "Javascript Alert. As the specific application has yet to be tested on your platform, some issues may be encountered." The website freezes on a 'loading' screen after log-in information is entered. The program is a locally hosted version of AIMS (www.aims.aero) and is used by airlines the world over. Is there some sort of browser plug-in I need to download to makes this work?

Silverlight is a proprietary MS Plug In to most browsers that run on the Wondows OS and only on the Windows OS.  Proprietary = no standards = broken web!

 

Its all about control and not supporting common and open standards which has always been a Gates/Allen/Balmer mantra.  MS will only support what MS can profit from which is why they adopted NetWare's standards back in the day bdcause they could profit from the use of NetWare.  SilverLight is just more of that backwards thinking...more for the investors less for the users.
