    in my honest opinion this browser is terrible.

    • I’d like to know the details of why you think this (please be as specific as possible). Keep in mind that this browser is meant to be a minimalist browser for a wide range of low- end cellphones, so it needs to sacrifice alot of features for portability and speed. Still, I’m keen to understand any issues / complaints people may have about it.

  3. To correct some inconsistencies in the description of PicoWeb: PicoWeb does a similar architecture as Opera — middleware server to do the compute/network- instensive tasks found in a typical web page, such as image reduction and byte- stream compression, to accelerate the browsing experience for end- users. Also, PicoWeb does support bold / italics, though some phones likely do not supports those fonts and they simply fallback to normal fonts instead.

    How do I get my pin number for the PicoWeb? Was it in the downloading process? Otherwise I can’t access the the setup.

    • Dennis says:

      The PIN is optional. It lets you lock other users out of the browser. Just leave it blank and click OK to get to settings.
