One of the world's most experienced developers of WebKit-based software solutions today announced the launch of Torch Mobile and the introduction of the company's flagship product, the Iris Browser. The company and product are being introduced for the first time at Mobile World Congress 2008 in Barcelona, Spain.
Since 2003, the people behind Torch Mobile have been acknowledged as experts in the KHTML and WebKit development communities. Led by George Staikos, a key contributor to the WebKit project and other popular open source initiatives, Torch Mobile is hitting the ground running with the launch of the Iris Browser.

Currently available as a public preview release for Windows Mobile 6 and available for free download at, the Iris Browser brings a desktop-quality Web experience to mobile and embedded systems of virtually any size.

The Iris Browser is a flexible, high-performance application, designed to provide users with a full-featured browsing experience on mobile phones, set-top boxes, portable media players and other resource-constrained devices. Based on the WebKit rendering engine, the Iris Browser provides a powerful and standards-compliant Internet experience that is consistent across different mobile Web devices.

Some of the key features of the Iris Browser include:

  • Customizable user interface
  • Touch screen and rotating screen support
  • Multi-window and multi-tab browsing
  • Several zoom modes (including block zoom)
  • Advanced security and privacy features (SSL, anti-phishing, and pop-up blocking)

The Iris Browser has been developed to support a variety of popular mobile environments. The first version available for open public beta supports Windows Mobile 6, with additional versions already developed for Trolltech's Qt embedded 2.3, Qtopia Core 4.3, and Qtopia 4.3.
