Turns out, Windows Mobile 6.5′s overhauled Mobile Internet Explorer web browser is more than just a simple mobile-port of Internet Explorer 6. We’re hearing that IE6 for Windows Mobile 6.5 will actually feature some advanced features from Internet Explorer 8 (IE8)!
IE6 has been long derided as incompatible with more webpages than any other browser. As such, it wouldn’t make sense for Microsoft to port a poorly designed, albeit more powerful than the current Pocket Internet Explorer browser, web browser to Windows Mobile 6.5. Instead, Microsoft has adopted a hybrid approach for their upcoming mobile web browser, endowing it with the strengths of IE8 but still based on the more lightweight IE6 codebase.
Still, it would be nice to see some tabbed browsing hitting IE6 Mobile.
