Browser on BB10 "A game changer"

I can assure you that I am not on some fast network - I am on Rogers after all. If I had a BB10 device, I'd gladly do the test on the same network. In any event, Gadget Masters could easily re-do the test with a Galaxy S3.
I wonder why Gadget Masters chose not to do the allur.com comparison between BB10 and iPhone 5. After all their previous video had compared these two devices. Why did they pick the Windows Phone to match up against when it came to allur.com. I strongly suspect them of cherry picking the tests.

I tried to refresh the page to see if it would reload and it won't let me. lol BB security

Seems like my Mac desktop browsers FF and Chrome can deal with it.

Also this is a desktop size website --- i.e. the width is designed for horizontal resolution of 1024. Any smartphone with less than 1024 resolution would have to be rescale the website --- which takes CPU time.
From the very beginning, multiple veteran crackberry members including the guy who wrote the Playbook rooting software have stated that the dev alpha is underclocked at 1 GHz. So the videos are not going to give you much answer to the actual speed of the final BB10 device anyway. Your S3 has 1.5 GHz dual Krait cores that is at least 70% faster than the dev alpha with 1 GHz dual Cortex A9 cores (a Krait core is about 15-25% faster than a cortex A9 core running at the same speed). And the iphone 5 has a 1.3 GHz CPU that again --- even on the same GHz frequency, runs faster per GHz than the cortex A9 core.

To put this topic to an END - And SAY IT AGAIN - BlackBerry 10 has the best browser because it's nothing like you have seen before.
I REQUEST EVERYONE TO WATCH THIS VIDEO TO SEE WHAT HTML5 AND A GOOD BROWSER CAN DO.

The maker of the video is sketchy, choosing three different websites for three different tests. I'm hoping some Crackberry member with a BB10 device and an iPhone or SG3 sets the record straight. I suggest cnn.com, allur.com, and crackberry.com - all desktop sites.

Why would you choose the allur.com and crackberry.com --- these are relatively unknown websites. And crackberry.com is known pretty much by us crackberry members to be historically a HTML mess that slows down everything.
Then there is the issue of dev alpha's underclocking to 1 GHz. Even if the dev alpha is not underclocked and it is running at full 1.5 GHz on the OMAP4470, the dev alpha's 1.5 GHz cortex A9 core would still be 30% slower than Samsung S3's 1.5 GHz Krait core.
