Free SecondTab App Adds Second Tab to BlackBerry OS 5.0 Browser

One of the features that BlackBerry users have been waiting forever for is tabbed browsing. We saw some leaks of tabbed browsing over the years but nothing ever came of it until RIM released the new WebKit browser in BlackBerry OS 6. The problem is that most users do not have BlackBerry 6 and are still hankering for tabbed browsing.

Fabian Heuwieser decided to put together a free application dubbed SecondTab that attempts to add a second tab to your BlackBerry browser. It is not exactly the most elegant solution but it works! You simply open the browser through the app and click Menu->Open second Tab which opens another browser screen in a second application. You can switch back and forth between these tabs just like you currently switch between applications.

Its not as good as the BlackBerry 6 implementation but it works! Kudos to Fabian for offering SecondTab free in App World for OS 5.0+ devices at this link. Let us know what you think of the app in the comments!

  1. Cool! I’ll try it!

  2. How about those who can’t use appworld? Isit on mobihand too?

  3. Its not bad. But my battery dropped from 90 to 60 with just two page loads. It and the browser were the only things running. Anyone else experience this?

  4. if you have the 9700 just wait for the official release of the os6, there you will get the official tab browsing. i am running the leaked and loving it. there is only 2 problems i have come across is battery leak and memory leak other than that os6 refreshes the 9700 for sure.

    check out my youtube page:

  5. Sounds like it’s worth checking out.

  6. fabian has great apps!! great stuff

  7. wow impressive for sure! I wonder if this is the first app of its type for the blackberry os? And if so, why did it take so long? This app sounds like it would be a top 10 recommended app for every blackberry user.

  8. thank you OS6, no need for this
