    Will I miss Web Clipping support?

    In my quest to "build my own ROM" I went ahead and deleted Web Clipping support and immediately filled the space with more "critical software". I recently learned what PQA stands for and doubt that I've ever used one.

    What sort of app would use Web Clipping? ...what is a web clipping anyway?

    I use ESPN, Weather.com, moviefone, USA Today & MapQuest. They come in quite handy. Do a search at palm.net

    Web Clipping

    Quick, to find out more than you ever wanted to know about web clipping go to http://www.palmone.com/us/support/mik/webclip.pdf.

    From what I understand if you do not use pqa's you don't need web clipping. I use several and have found them useful, especially when traveling. Most pqa's are quite small, usually less than 10k, but some such as the eBay pqa are over 150K.

    Web clipping is probably on the decline. As Palm devices get more memory the necessity of writing small web apps diminishes (unfortunately.)

    I too have been giving the ROM a lobotomy and have whacked out everything not Palm native or phone specific, over 4 meg. After cramming everything I want loaded I still have over 8 meg of RAM open.

    Kudos to Mr. Brayder.

    They might be on the out, but I find them quite useful. They're quick to load (B&W), informative and I don't have to use a web browser, which cn be iffy at time.
