Alternative browser suggestion

Found the old blackberry curve so functional with my work and managing certain tasks with my pda modified web page, that I went out to get the new 9000 bold....  just to find it has some yes cool browser but totally not functional for me.


e.g  try to look into a long drop down list and make multiple selections with new browser.  Impossible!


With old browser on curve, I was able to easily goto list item by pressing 1st letter (which it does also on 9000) and select parts of views and work with them with control.


Unless I missing some config option to set it to some mode that makes my life easier. 


I guess the not so friendly UI are sometimes more practical IMHO.   It was more like a lynx mode browser if anything that suited me to work more efficiently.


Any chance of getting an old browser curve web browser on the bold?

Re: Alternative browser suggestion

Standard BB Browser is an integral part of operating system.


OS for Blackberry Curve is not compatible with Blackberry Bold device.


Try to use another mobile browser.
