Nokia Opens Web Browser Source Code
Nokia on Wednesday released the source code for its S60 WebKit, the engine that powers the company's Web browser for its Series 60 phones. The technology, which is based on Apple's Safari WebKit, includes enhancements designed for mobile browsing and is able to render full Web pages on a small screen with support for DHTML and AJAX.
The S60 WebKit is available under the open source BSD License, which the company says will open the door for setting a standard and reducing fragmentation when it comes to mobile browser applications. Nokia's E Series and N Series phones will be the first to feature the browser. Developers can access the source code through the WebKit Open Source Project.
