By Erin Harrison, Executive Editor, Cloud Computing
A new release from Movial (News
) could make 2010 “the year of the flexible browser.” Movial today announced the availability of its new cross platform Movial IXS Browser running on QtWebKit.
Company officials have dubbed the browser an “intuitive, versatile and flexible solution that leverages the performance excellence of QtWebKit, Movial IXS Browser,” which enables developers to deploy and port the same touchscreen optimized UI code across almost any device.
“Until now, deploying intuitive desktop-like Internet browsers easily and quickly across various form factors has been a challenge,” said Tomi Rauste, president of Movial Creative Technologies. “2010 is the year of the flexible browser focused on fulfilling the key user needs. Movial provides a clear alternative to confusing UI feature overload. With this latest version of Movial IXS Browser that utilizes the high performance of QtWebKit, Movial provides the development community with the ability to quickly and easily deploy an intuitive browser that improves usability, and provides a streamlined consistent look and feel across all connected devices.”
A Qt Certified Partner, Movial will demonstrate its newest solution on LG-Nortel’s fourth screen home multimedia tablet demo device at the Qt Development Frameworks Stand 1E44 at Mobile World Congress (News
