[edit] Description

Archived:Web Browser for S60 allows the users to access the web pages on their devices. The main purpose is to surf the web and view internet sites.

A browser snapshot from Nokia N72

[edit] Some usability tips

  • The smaller form factor must be kept into account.
  • Entering text might be slow for mobile devices, so providing autocomplete will be an added advantage for the users.
  • There should be provision for performing the basic functions - back, forward, stop, refresh and home.
  • Vertical scrolling of pages should be preferred.
  • Soft keys mapping for commands should be used wisely.
  • Should provide a mechanism for proper navigation.
  • Variation of fonts and colors should not be too high for atleast smaller resolution devices.
  • Should not create auto-refreshing pages, otherwise provide an option to the user to stop this behaviour.
  • Very large images should not be used.
