Tabbed Web Browsing Coming to BlackBerry OS 5.0

 Tabbed Web Browsing Coming to BlackBerry OS 5.0We’re slowly getting closer, but we’re not quite there yet. Surfing the Internet on your smartphone is almost like the experience you get on a real computer, but there are still some features that are missing. Research in Motion is working to bridge the gap with the upcoming BlackBerry OS 5.0.

Along with what will likely be a slew of other new features, BlackBerry OS 5.0 will add tabbed browsing to the BlackBerry Browser, allowing you to navigate more than one webpage at a time. Other smartphone mobile browsers have been able to handle this for a little while, so it’s good to see that RIM is catching up.

This is still very much a work in progress, but the current build has you going through the BlackBerry menu in order to access the currently opened tabs. There are no keyboard shortcuts set up for the time being, but I hope that they add this before pushing the OS into primetime.

Then again, if you could probably just download any number of third-party browsers onto your BlackBerry to get in on the tabbed surfing action. If you’re feeling exceptionally brave, there is a leaked copy of BB OS 5.0 for the 8900 and Bold, but know that it’s totally unofficial and can be totally filled with bugs.
