14.5. pdQbrowser

If you've read the previous chapter, you've met pdQmail, pdQbrowser's email-related sibling. The programs cost $40 for the pair; they're the email and web components of the Qualcomm pdQ Smartphone (a combination cell phone and PalmPilot).

pdQbrowser's primary virtues are speed and clean design—but don't buy it hoping for a long feature list. For example, the program can't display graphics, offers no History list, and lacks such basic commands as Stop and Reload. On the other hand, if you're willing to do without graphics, you'll enjoy the browser's ability to display buttons, forms, pop-up menus, scrolling lists, and so on (see Figure 14.11, left). PdQbrowser is also the only browser that uses both boldface and different font sizes to simulate the original page's layout (Figure 14.11, right).
