Digia’s @Web – Full Finger Touch UI Browser For S60 5th Edition Mobiles

Written By Sam on 9 August 2009

Recently I was looking for a new browser for my Nokia 5800 XpressMusic mobile and came across Digia @Web. Digia @Web browser is a fully finger touch controllable web browser for S60 5th Edition mobiles like Nokia 5800, 5530 and N97, Samsung i8910 HD etc. Digia @Web uses the webkit browser engine and provides direct page control with finger, multiple browser windows, url auto-complete and automatic full screen browsing.


Digia @Web has the concept of overlaid controls which means that the controls will be hidden after a short period of time. This will give you a more space to browse the web content. The window controls and address bar on the top, zoom bar at the right and the bottom toolbar will be hidden after a short period. Quick menu can be obtained with a longer hold on the main screen. The multiple window feature allows you to browse multiple sites very easily. There is also the URL auto completion feature which will get you the most accessed urls.


Browser UI features

  • Supports Full finger touch UI and Accelerated panning.
  • Automatic full screen browsing via auto-hiding controls.
  • Multiple browser windows and Multiple zoom levels
  • Page rotation for portrait and landscape browsing
  • Password manager and Intelligent Bookmark functionality.
  • You can have bookmarked folders and favicons.
  • URL auto-completion from the history.
  • Text select for copy/paste
  • Supports RSS feeds

Browser Engine features

  • HTML 4.01
  • True web page rendering
  • JavaScript 1.5
  • HTTP 1.1 with support to secure and non-secure browsing
  • HTTP cache and cookies
  • Supports Flash content and AJAX
  • Netscape compatible Plug-in interface

Supported S60 5th Edition Devices

  • Nokia 5800 XpressMusic
  • Nokia 5320 XpressMusic
  • Nokia N97
  • Samsung i8910 HD
  • SonyEricsson Satio

Though Digia @Web looks promising it is still in the beta stage and there are also some bugs present in it. So I better suggest you to use it as a secondary browser on your S60 5th Edition mobiles.
