Subject [jira] Commented: (TRINIDAD-1519) Nokia S60 emulator: user agent is desktop
Date Tue, 07 Jul 2009 18:28:15 GMT


Mamallan Uthaman commented on TRINIDAD-1519:

Trinidad generates JavaScript and style sheet files depending only on the user-agent's capabilities.
Mobile version of Safari browser is known to support many features like its desktop version.
Hence, Trinidad considers Safari running in Nokia S60 as a desktop safari browser in order
to leverage the features available in S60's Safari.

Also, with respect to the JavaScript file, Trinidad doesn't have different versions for desktop
and mobile browsers. If Trinidad finds the user-agent capable of supporting JavaScript, it
sends the JavaScript file to the requesting browser.

Unless the size of JavaScript and Style Sheet files creates a performance problem in S60,
I believe Trinidad's current-behaviour is acceptable. 

If S60 cannot handle the size of  the JavaScript file then we can consider S60's Safari as
a basic HTML browser for which no JavaScript file will be delivered. But it will be a trade-off,
we cannot leverage many feature of S60's Safari.
