__defineGetter__ Alternative

I am trying to support Blackberry on my web site.

To make my code clean I use __lookupGetter__ and __defineGetter__ for Opera/Safari/Firefox to act like IE. IE 8 is getting defineProperty so I might switch IE to be more like them later once I can stop supporting IE 6 and IE 7.

 

Sadly __defineGetter__ is not defined by BlackBerry browsers 4.6 and 4.7.

 

What is everyone doing as an alternative (not counting polling for all properties)...

Re: __defineGetter__ Alternative

To prove that I am trying to find solutions:

I found that IE 8 comes with some new way to defineProperties.

I also found someone that made a polling solution (every 13ms)

Obviously both of these solutions do not work for me.

Re: __defineGetter__ Alternative

I logged a bug on it: https://www.blackberry.com/jira/browse/WEBAPI-8 so vote for it if you care.
