7.x Browser options

Hi Everyone,

I am currently testing on a device running I have noticed some new options in the browser and was not sure what they meant. I was hoping someone could shed some light:


In the browser, go to options. Scroll down to Web Content and there is a check box called Enable Developer Tools. What are these? Where can I see these tools.


Continuing to scroll down, under Clear Browsing Data there is a new checkbox called Download List. Does anyone know what this is?

Re: 7.x Browser options

For the enable Developer tools, I believe it turns on the capability to connect to the simulator or device using Web Inspector..   There's an article about this for the PlayBook.  This functionality also exists for the BB7 simulator where "I believe" the IP address you use is your desktop's IP address


For the download list I imagine that it is now keeping track of the history of files that you have downloaded locally as a "Save As".
