It may be very impressive, but the browser at reqwireless isn't a
real browser. That's why it doesn't support JavaScript, for example,
and anything that is client-side.

They have a server that grabs the page for you, transforms it to be
readable by your Treo 600 and then serves it to your Treo 600.

Courier is a real browser, albeit incomplete, but completely autonomous.
