Metro Flavored Nokia Xpress Web Browser Debuts
For Windows Phone users who have been clamoring for an alternative browser, Nokia has announced Nokia Xpress featuring data compression and a different viewer paradigm. Although it packs a metro flavor, the new browser surprisingly does not use the Internet Explorer 9 rendering engine. It is clear Nokia has taken inspiration from browsers such as Chrome and Opera. Notably, Nokia Xpress takes advantage of Opera-style data compression (up to 85 per cent), meaning web pages load faster and data costs cheaper by way of lesser consumption.
The new browser has a ‘Quick link’ dial pad for favorite webpages, a built-in RSS reader for blogs and news feeds, built-in one-click translation and the option to save pages for offline reading and integrated SkyDrive Cloud download and upload for images and videos.
