The WebKit BlackBerry browser comes with significantly improved web content support. This includes HTML 5 elements such as the < canvas > element which allows you to directly paint on a web page. With the < canvas > element, the native browser has support for lines, shapes, gradients and pixel manipulation. The < audio > and < video > elements are supported as well, meaning the native browser can stream supported device media formats. HTML 5 also comes with support for geolocation, workers and timers.
Other web content support includes new CSS 3 features such as the ability to specific an opacity value between 0 and 1 for colors. Other CSS 3 features supported include rounded corners/borders and the ability to apply styles to HTML by matching attributes to expressions.
We’ll have more details in the coming weeks about the new browser so stay tuned.
