Thumbs down TouchBrowser for Pocket PC 1.0

Beware, this is not a browser. It is only a user interface a la PointUI. TouchBrowser is a UI that uses PIE to render web pages and is not likely to produce an iPhone like experience as it's website states, especially since PIE does not render tables as mobile Safari does. The company tells on itself in its own manual. To add insult to injury, there's a $14.95 charge to use the UI.

From the manual:

"Why do some pages display incorrect? TouchBrowser uses the Pocket Internet Explorer to render HTML pages. It's a new user interface on top of an existing browser. TouchBrowser renders pages exactly the same as Pocket Internet Explorer. Pages that Pocket Internet Explorer can't handle correctly (like websites with Flash, or with complex layouts) are also rendered incorrectly by Touchbrowser. If you're looking for a browser that can handle these websites correctly, Touchbrowser is not the thing you're looking for, but we advice Opera or a similar browser based on a more modern rendering engine."

Definitely not a welcome product. Developers, if you want to get paid, develop real, self-sufficient software. Piggybacking on existing software is a waste of your resources.


I wish I had another set of hands, so I could give this product four thumbs down. HATE HATE HATE!!!
