Speed Up Sidekick Web Browsing

Posted July 1, 2004 by Al Banks in HipTop Sidekick

Is your web browsing too slow on your sidekick? This tutorial contains a few tips you can use to increase the speed.


First, if a website has a “palm” or “handheld” version, these will generally load much faster and look better.

The Sidekick will also let you “Go To” a URL. Then while that is accessing and loading, click the jump button and use another app. The Sidekick will inform you when the page is loaded. Click the jump button, and choose Web Browser to see the page.

While in the web browser, click the menu button, and choose settings. Here you can set your home page and an alert when a page has finished loading. I recommend using one that just blinks the wheel.

If you are really need more speed, you can also disable the images from these settings.
