Torch Mobile launches Web browser for Windows Mobile and Qtopia
Torch Mobile launched during the Mobile World Congress and immediately introduced the company's flagship product, the Iris Browser.

Working since 2003, the people behind Torch Mobile have been acknowledged as experts in the KHTML and WebKit development communities. Led by George Staikos, a key contributor to the WebKit project and other popular open source initiatives, Torch Mobile is hitting the ground running with the launch of the Iris Browser.

Currently in preview release for Windows Mobile 6 and available for free download, the Iris Browser brings a desktop-quality Web experience to mobile and embedded systems of virtually any size.

"As mobile and smartphone devices become more powerful and more prevalent, people want a complete Web experience in the palm of their hand," said George Staikos, President of Torch Mobile. "With the Iris Browser, we've distilled our years of development experience into a product that we think brings the pinnacle of Web functionality to a broad range of devices."

The Iris Browser is a flexible, high-performance application, designed to provide users with a full-featured browsing experience on mobile phones, set-top boxes, portable media players and other resource-constrained devices. Based on the WebKit rendering engine, the Iris Browser provides a powerful and standards-compliant Internet experience that is consistent across different mobile Web devices.

Some of the key features of the Iris Browser include:

- Customizable user interface;
- Touch screen and rotating screen support;
- Multi-window and multi-tab browsing;
- Several zoom modes (including block zoom);
- Advanced security and privacy features (SSL, anti-phishing, and pop-up blocking).

The Iris Browser has been developed to support a variety of popular mobile environments. The first version available for open public beta supports Windows Mobile 6, with additional versions already developed for Trolltech's Qt embedded 2.3, Qtopia Core 4.3, and Qtopia 4.3.
