Iris Browser for Windows Mobile - Beta 2 Released

Mon Nov 10, 2008 - 2:23 PM EST - By Jennifer Chappell

Remember back in August when we told you about the Iris Browser for Windows Mobile? To refresh your memory, the Iris Browser is an iPhone like browser and has the revolutionary technology that allows you to access the full Web on resource-constrained devices and get the same functionality as you would on a PC. Sounds pretty good when you think about the ho-hum browsing we have to endure on our WM Treos.

I just read over at the::unwired that Torch Mobile has released its Beta 2 of Iris Browser for Windows Mobile.

According to the::unwired, the new version contains over 100 fixes and improvements and is said to be incredibly fast and stable now.

The Torch Mobile Blog states that the focus on Beta 2 was entirely on:

  1. Performance
  2. Smaller footprint - we're 10% smaller than beta 1!
  3. User interaction improvement
  4. Stability
  5. Page rendering improvement

From the Torch Mobile Blog:

Surfing your favorite pages will feel much more responsive, and the dreaded �memory pressure� warnings are very hard to find on devices with 128MB of memory. Even devices with less memory are capable of browsing much larger pages now, and our use of memory on these pages is reduced in almost every case.

You can download the Iris Browswer Beta 2 here for Free.
