Has anyone out there found an internet browser that works with a web-site that automatically opens additional windows? I own a IPAQ 2215 and have tried using PIE to log on and navigate the web site I use for ordering merchandise for my store known as "order dog", however I can only get so far on the web site because as soon as I get to a function which automatically opens another window, PIE ignores, or maybe just does not display the new window. I tried the trial version of PIEplus as well as Netfront and still have had no luck. I also noticed similar problems with the aol.com website, certain functions just don't work. Isn't there a browser somewhere out there that will let me use these websites? Am I missing a setting that is necessary to make it work with these browsers or am I just ahead of what the capabilities are for web browsers for pocket pcs??
Having internet capabilities with no way to access the web sites I use the most leaves me with worthless Pocket Pc internet access.
I would very much appreciate anyones input on this.
I am using the latest version of netfront 3.1 with the java support. I did go ahead and buy the product as I noticed in the readme file that many functions were disabled. When I installed the purchased version, it definitely had more functionality and less problems but...I still cannot use it for 2 of the websites I use for work purposes. My problem is that the most important website I use requires a paid membership (www.orderdog.com) and you cannot really do anything at the site without a logon. I did contact tech support at orderdog and they told me that the web site was designed for MS Internet explorer and that even netscape browsers will not work properly at their site......so I am not sure what they have done to the design to make it so tightly linked to MS IE. I was able to use Netfront to use the aol.com web site. And that is now working and it handles pop up windows ok. Sometimes it behaved a little strangely so I think even Netfront sometimes fumbles with websites that have pop-up windows, but it definitely works better than PIE, which does not handle pop up windows at all. I am starting a more involved conversation with one of the websites I am having trouble with and when and if I find out more particulars will be happy to share the info. If you want to do a thorough review, I would suggest you test web sites that pop up secondary windows, there are plenty out there and that seems to be the problem that most of these browsers do not accomadate very well. Most of the browsers I have tested so far choke when a pop up window is used at the web site.
Thanks for the suggestion on Changing the profile, but unfortunately that did not work. I first tried changing the netfront profile by making a new entry and editing the entry to say "MSIE 6.0" but that did not work, there are no instructions on netfront for changing the profile that I could find so I will assume that the string I entered is the way to do it. However, I also downloaded PIE plus and set the profile to IE 6.0 and that did not work either. If I did not change netfront correctly let me know but PIE plus was pretty straight forward and it did not work either.
if u dont mind, EMAIL me your username and password for orderdog.com, i can test it out for u..
if u dont feel comfortable, delete all your personal info on orderdog.com 1st..
after i tested it, u can change your password to something else..
did u give "MultiIE" a try? i tried it, and it does work on MultiIE..
but keep your Netfront 3.0 with java support also..
dont know why, some sites work on MultiIE and some sites work on Netfront 3.0.
orderdog.com works on MultiIE, and NOT netfront..
datek.com works on netfront, and NOT MultiIE..
u can get a free trial MultiIE here..
