Palm is offering its customers a new Web browser specially customized for handheld computers, but it's going to cost.

The Palm Web Browser will cost $19.95 in the United States and will be available for purchase and download on Palm's Web site and at other stores next month. The browser will work with Palm's m125, m130, m500, m505, m515 and i705 models.

The new browser will allow handhelds to view any site on the Internet, using wireless access or a modem. Typical handheld browsers have difficulty displaying many Web sites. The software also allows customers to save information for offline viewing and record a history of visited sites. Versions are available in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Japanese.

Handspring released the Blazer 2.0 browser, which works with Palm OS products, in October, charging $19.95.
