Nokia Belle Refresh – After the dust settles

And by more I mean more FP2 features. But it didn’t happen. Now that I got over that initial WTF moment it’s time to take a look under the hood to see what are the performance improvements that arrives with this new update. First of all let’s tackle the browser. Updated to version 8.3 the browser brings some subtle but worth noting user interface updates. …
