BB OS 5.0 tabbed browsing
The upcoming and previously discussed BlackBerry OS 5.0 is now known to be getting a new tabbed browsing feature, which RIM has reportedly been working on for quite some time. A new beta build including the feature has been leaked to BGR, which claims mixed reactions to the current version. While opening new tabs is fairly easy, switching between multiple windows is considered unnecessarily difficult as there is no shortcut for the operation.
A launch date for the new OS is still unknown, but it is expected and hoped for that RIM will include a fix for this oversight in the form of a keyboard shortcut before the beta version is upgraded to a full production build.
