Possible to customize mobile's native browser?

Greetings to all!

I have a question about the built-in browser, when it is called using the command.
I'm trying to view some very simpe HTML pages that I created, and I was thinking instead of making my own HTML parser, to use the built in browser of the mobile.
But when the browser is running it maps the command buttons with its own default settings(refresh, enter URL, exit browser etc.), and as it seems I have no control over the functionality that it offers.
So my question is : is ti possible somehow to customize the mobile browser, so I can map my own custom functionalities on the command buttons?
And generally is it possible to have any level of control over the native browser???

Thank you all very much and in advance for your answer!

No you can't have any control of the mobile browser (or any platform request) from within a MIDlet.
