Minimo for Windows Mobile 5


If you are looking for an alternative to Internet Explorer on your Windows Mobile 5 smartphone, take a look at Minimo.  Minimo is a Mozilla project and uses the Mozilla rendering engine to include the following features:

  • Fast access to your mobile content via Homebase start page

  • Best support for modern web standards (Javascript and AJAX).

  • Social Bookmarking

  • Tab browsing

  • RSS Support

  • Proven security (TLS, SSL3)

  • International support

  • Cross platform capability

  • Widget and Extension support

I've been using it on my Cingular 2125 and it blows Internet Explorer out of the water; I would imagine that it's even more useful with a device that has a full keyboard.

In order to make it easy to get the CAB directly on your phone, I'm providing this SnipURL:  If you put this URL into your mobile browser (or send it via SMS to your phone, which is the easiest way), it will take you directly to the CAB file download for Minimo 0.2.  Note that Minimo CAB file is about 4MB, so make sure you have room before downloading.

If you want to check out Minimo some more and/or download the installation file in a different way, I have included a link to the main Minimo page below.
