Talk:Symbian Browser and Web Runtime 7.3 for Developers

From Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A few questions: 1) Is Canvas supported? 2) How can you not have implemented offline storage and application cache? This is exactly what was needed in a smartphone. The "HTML5" apps especially made for Android and iOS pretty much all take advantage of these features. This is a major disappointment.

Please comment on what will likely be included in the 7.4 browser.

Lastly, when can we finally get a web runtime that allows users to enable permissions only one time and never have to give permission again instead of each time you open the app. Not user friendly at all!!!

Hey, First of all, as a web developer, I feel your frustration. :)

The main targets with Browser 7.3 were to bring the usability and real life performance to a new level. The developer facing updates are significant, yet some features we would have loved to get in, didn't quite make it.

Canvas and offline capas are not supported in 7.3.

Anyhow, the train is moving forward and we're very busy with the next iteration(s). Stay tuned.

Mgroeber9110 - bug with focus() in tabbed navigation mode

For reference, I have just posted another possible bug in JavaScript handling of the focus() method in the 7.3 browser here:

Candidate for a "Known Issue"?

Aate - Authentication in URL

Hello (and sorry for my bad english writing).

I don't understand why this "" STANDARD form of URL is no longer supported. It's a huge problem for my business and me because some of our business applications involving many machines are based on this principle. Please, is there any way to activate this feature in the new version or workaround (without using any other browser) ? Authentication stored in the bookmarks do not work either! I am generally pleased with the work of Nokia teams but I do not understand this choice.

Hoping my message calls out someone... have a nice day.

Hamishwillee - Aate - I suspect not

Please see my comment in KIC001677 - Automatic HTTP/HTTPS authentication in URLs discontinued in Browser 7.3. Essentially it is "ask on the forums" - that is where most people with expertise will be looking.
