Building a Next Generation Mobile Browser Using Web Technologies

The BlackBerry 10 browser was created using groundbreaking Web technologies and has opened new doors for even better web experiences. In fact, many building blocks, including the application’s chrome itself, were created using HTML5 and CSS3. In this session we will showcase how the next generation mobile browser was built using the very web technologies it was designed to render.

We will dispel myths that Web technologies can be limiting and explore various lessons learned about optimizing performance. This session will also serve as a preview for next generation Web application technologies, and possibly what BlackBerry WebWorks™ and Apache Cordova may evolve to in the not so distant future.
