Just out - IE 6 for WM

Its out and its... well much much nicer than the current PIE.


Can you have it ? -  No - it will not be made available as a seperate download for your exisitng WM devices. (Personally i dont think this is such a bad move if its not going to perform well as a seperate install). I know that i've been turned off opera on certain devices because it didn't perform well.

Developers - experience it using Windows Mobile 6.1.4 Emulator Images now available.

Some of the cool features available with Internet Explorer Mobile 6 are:

  • Improved fidelity (support for full fidelity desktop rendering)
  • Layout fixes to accommodate a mobile screen (text wrap)
  • Enhanced Script and AJAX support  (Jscript v5.7 from Internet Explorer 8)
  • Improved multimedia experience (Adobe Flash Lite 3.1 for Adobe Flash content)
  • Deeper integration with search
  • Enhanced cursor navigation model
  • Touch and gesture support – pan support
  • Multiple zoom levels
  • Easy switching between mobile / desktop versions of sites by specifying UA strings.


I am going to miss the old PIE - at least in India where data speeds aren't even upto 3G levels yet, loading a full blown web page with all the useless junk on them takes forever. fingers crossed 3G and IE 6 hit the market at the same time
