We’re happy to announce that the Samsung bada platform and its built-in Dolphin browser is now officially supported. We’d like to thank Samsung for donating a Wave 3 test phone running bada 2.0 to our lab. When our new bada device arrived jQuery Mobile worked without a hitch and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of rendering and speed of this platform.
We’ve also started testing on UC Browser on Android and are happy to report that jQuery Mobile works great. UCweb is the most popular mobile web browser in China with a whopping 65% market share so it makes a lot of sense for us to keep this on our testing radar. This is a surprisingly good browser with clean rendering.
Both of these platforms are examples of how our commitment to web standards and feature detection allows the framework to “just work” on an ever-increasing set of platforms and browsers without adding extra code or maintenance. We normally just need to add new devices to our standard testing rotation to ensure that we continue to support them as we move forward.
Please refer to jQuery Mobile for more details.
