    Hello all, I have been waiting for palmone to release java for the treo 600 and finally its here. The reason i am so exited is i can finally install a browser i used to use on my old sprint sanyo 4900 callled Webviewer by company called Reqwireless . Its absoulutley the fastest browser i have used, blows away Blazer and even the patched version of Webpro. I simply installed the new beta version of java for the treo i found on another thread here, then downloaded Webviewer on to my computer converted the jar file to prc and wham! works on my sprint treo6 perfectly. heres the link http://www.reqwireless.com/webviewer.html

    Its not free but 19.99 is worth it for me. its the only browser that i know of that lets me view online pdf's on my treo600 without having acrobat. It also supports the five way nav in a way the stylus is not needed. I was also recieving "unexpected server responce 411 length required; null " what you need to do is go to the advance settings in webviewer and change the port from 80 to 8080 it worked for me. you can down load the trail version of webviewer for free for 10 days and 10 web pages per day the images say " trial" across them.

    Are you able to browse secured sites like bank websites (to check your balance), Paypal, etc.?

    migs,
    where did you get the beta java app I couldn't find it on the threads.
  6. #6  
    I've downloaded the trial also. Not a bad program. Seems pretty fast. The only complain I have is it doesn't have a scroll bar. Does this have the capability of saving pictures on the web as jpeg?

    how do i convert it to a prc file? what program i need?

    I can't seem to download any secure websites with webviewer.
    Is this possible for Treo 600?? I tried Paypal and other secure websites and I get an error? Anyone??

    Ditto for me as well. Can't access any "https" pages. This is pretty annoying. The WebViewer product website claims this browser supports the https protocol and secure web surfing.

    Thanks Migs! I'm impressed with WebViewer. This thing really flies. It's multiple times faster than Blazer or WebPro. Evite just flies on Webviewer. On Blazer and WebPro, it's not even usable. Looks like there is a issue with https sites, but I'm sure they'll fix that problem. The Webviewer uses a proxy server to handle all the web page reformatting and protocol handling, so they probably need to adjust something on the proxy server to get the https working.

    Have a good one,
    Nate

    So, this product that you recommend over Blazer and WebPro, please explain how you got it to work...

    Thanks!

    Interface seems a bit clumsy... Can't cut or past..... Not sure if faster than Web Pro.... No scroll bar...

    I'll have to try some concrete tests...
  16. #16  
    Thx for the excellent instructions! I'm going to test if this works better than WebProV in particular for speed and navigation. I won't mind having to use WebPro for the occasional htpps site.
  17. #17  
    This site really flies - I did some speed tests last night. Blazer works pretty well for me: averages about 70 - 100 kbs on text.dslreports.com. WebProV was extremely quick (too quick for the speed test), but the lack of graphics made it unusable for me.

    Using this browser, I was getting on average about 175 kbps! And the graphics work fine. It was definitely worth the $. The weaknesses:

    -No cut/paste.
    -Some weirdness with bookmarks: it seems you can only edit/move the top bookmark on your list. Even if you highlight one of the other ones, any actions affect the top one. (You have to be creative with dropping bookmarks into a folder to get to one of your lower ones.)

    It's definitely cool to watch MSNBC come up in just a few seconds, graphics and all, when it used to take well over a minute, however!

    Definately the fastest browser out there.

    One issue I am having though is the inability to move down menu items. For instance, when you hit the menu key on the treo, I can move left or write to other menu items, but not up and down. Am I missing something?
  19. #19  
    You're not missing something... I also have the "menu items" problem. To me, it doesn't even rise to the level of needing the stylus - just an occasional finger tap.

    The only annoyance to me is the Bookmark issue I mentioned... I tried organizing them into folders. The problem is that any new bookmarks appear below the folders and thus can't be edited or added into the folders. I then need to create a new folder below the new bookmarks, transfer my old bookmarks to the new folder, delete the old folder, and finally move the newest bookmarks (which are now at the top of the list).

    My workaround will probably be to keep a webpage for my bookmarks

    Can someone explain the "no scroll bar" comment? The screen is so small if you don't have a scrollbar, does it mean you only see the top of the web page?
