Multiple Windows In The S60 Browser

The user manual for the N95 says that it can open multiple windows in the browser but even after three firmwares I am yet to see that option materialise. However what the latest v20 firmware has done, is give the N95 a decent ammount of free RAM. Under the old circumstances I never really dreamed of managing multiple windows on the browser, however things have changed and we are in a position to do so. I sucessfully opened four websites

For the other devices too, such as the N82, N81 and the others with decent ammount of RAM already, multiple windows on high speed wifi/3G connections is something practical.

METHOD:
the attachment is called .htm file which can be used to open new windows. Just set it as you homepage from the settings in the browser and click on the “Open a new window” link to open upto a maximun of 5 windows. It also features direct Google search field and a goto box.

– To set this up, copy the file to E:/Others with a file manager or any way you choose.

– Lauch the browser and select Options>Bookmarks>Add a Bookmark.

– In the address type “file://localhost/e:/others/NewWindow.htm” and save the bookmark.

– Load the bookmark, goto Settings>General>Homepage and select use current.

Thats it, next time you load the browser this will be displayed. You can also press ‘9? for the default goto option which remembers history.

special thanx to vaibhav
