Engadget Mobile found a new mobile browser called TeaShark, which is available to phones capable of support JAVA MIDP 2.0. Evidently, its based on the same technology platform as the default Nokia browser with enhanced features. I downloaded a copy from their website and have found this browser to be quite good. Here are the pros and cons:
* Clean Interface and startup page (Nokia Default Browser does not have a startup page, while Opera Mini's always felt a bit more cramped)
* Cool Multi-Tab feature. I managed to get up to 3 tabs opened at once.
* True, full screen browsing. Not top or bottom menu bars to limit your on screen display
* Full text select, like desktop browsers
* Find text function, like desktop browsers
* Smart URL suggestion functionality, this comes in very handy over a S60 handset
* Bookmark organization with color tags
* The UI is not as intuitive. The on screen "#" shortcut menu makes it easier to use
* Menu and Functionality can sometimes be confusing (not sure exactly how to open a new tab or close old tab)
* When you press the "END" key, it shuts the application down (ie. other programs just takes you to home screen, kept app running in background)
* Like all other 3rd party software, the application must choose a network to sign on each time of use (no default access point setup)
Overall, I am pleased with another good mobile browser option that I can use. I feel like each new browser one ups the default Nokia Browser which is already very good. However, the level of improvement is so marginal that I am not sure if I would make the permanent switch; largely due to the fact that the default browser's inherent and seamless integration with the OS itself.
