Compare BB Browser Versions

Hello,  Sorry if this questions has been asked before but is there a chart somewhere which compares various BB browser versions which have shipped with BB phones.  The chart should compare capabilities like, CSS support, Javascript support, table support, cache, etc. etc.

 

Thanks.

Re: Compare BB Browser Versions

There isn't a chart, but the BlackBerry Browser Content Developers Guides do list what is supported for the various versions of BlackBerry handheld software.  You can find them here:

Re: Compare BB Browser Versions

Thanks for the reference.

 

I found the developer guide there for BB V4.3, but no details on what is or is not supported in other versions.

 

Specifically useful would be information on what is supported in V4.2 as that is what is running on most of the phones I have surveyed.

 

Where can we find this information?

Oops!

 

Just checked again and 4.2 was there.  Is this where 4.5 asnd 4.6 documentation will show up?

 

Is there more in-depth documentation somewhere on your JavaScript support?  The createTextNode() is not documented here.  The call was part of the 1.0 DOM specification in 1997, and shows up as 'native code' in 4.2, but hangs when called.
