  First impression of NetFront 3.3 - Excellent

Recently installed NetFront 3.3 browser on the Treo 700w. I have used NetFront before, and was always impressed with it; however, 3.3 is the first NetFront version compatible with Windows Mobile 5. NetFront is known for supporting the latest standards, and this version upholds that tradition. I am able to review my credit card activity on-line, and also fully view my bank site, including pictures of cancelled checks. Since these sites are very secure, and use the latest W3C standards, I am impressed with NetFront 3.3's ability to display them as well as it did.

The only slightly negative experience with NetFront 3.3 is it no longer supports the http://mms.... url structure. This structure calls a streaming Windows Movie File from a server. The mms type of URL works fine in Pocket IE, IE Desktop, and Safari. The mms url structure is probably deprecated; however, I use it to ensure the url is understood by older browsers. I am sure coding the new format that NetFront 3.3 understands will not be a problem, but I am concerned about other mobile browsers understanding the new format. I could have two links, one for NetFront 3.3, and one for older browsers, but I would prefer not to do that.

I will continue putting NetFront 3.3 through its paces, but my first impression is that NetFront 3.3 is an excellent browser for the newer Pocket PC's.

  No recent posts because Treo 700w has had no problems

The lack of posts is not due to my failure to update the blog; it is due to a problem free Treo 700w. I am aware of the impact of inadequate memory on the device, and have adjusted my expectations about major multitasking accordingly. The Treo 700w is operating as expected, and I have not experienced any major recent problems with the system or third party apps. This is a nice feeling that I hope continues for a long time.

  Motorola Q looks nice

Motorola Q looks really nice. If it had Wi-Fi, and phone edition rather than smartphone, I would probably trade in the Treo 700w.
 
I was a Palm OS champion for years, but switched to the Windows Mobile platform in 2005. My experiences using my Windows Mobile devices, and other electronic devices will be detailed in this blog. The posts reflect what I like, and do not like about a device, or application. Your needs, and opinion may be different.
