Do you want compatibility or performance?
android = 48pc tool set (you"ll eventually find the tool you need, but some assembly required)
iphone = swiss army knife (most of the tools you need in a small, simple to use package)
blackberry = adjustable wrench (sometimes all you need is a wrench)
windows phone = bionic wrench (its different....but it works)

Sometimes I wonder if the people complaining about slow loading and checkerboards on the PB browser are connecting to the Internet via a potato as opposed to a proper high speed connection. My PB is usually connected to a fast access point and I don't have any issues with slow and choppy web browsing. I browse sites that are quite heavy in content, too. If you're accessing the Internet on a slow connection, any device is going to be uncomfortable to browse the web with.

And sometimes, if you've been a very naughty boy (for example, browsing CrackBerry from your Android tab), Chrome will punish you by locking up the entire tablet.
Bottom Line: I'll take "slow and steady" over "fast and unstable" any day of the week...but then I'm one of those people who preached the benefits of Windows NT back when everyone was still running DOS/Windows 3.xx.

I have to agree with the OP.
The playbook browser is a P. O. S.
First of all I must hold the world record on selecting an url link, tapping 18 times before the browser picked it up and redirected me to that site.
HTML5 fallback video does not work. Turning of flash in my browser render the native HTML5 video option if available, and it doesn't. In other browsers it does. (however this may come downtown programming of the sites )
Checkerboarding is insanely stupid. I ran a test vs a 10.1 Note, ipad3 3, and a Sony tablet, and the Page rendering blew the PB out the water. I'm not talking initial Page load, I'm talking just scrolling down the Site!!!
Playbook is 10 times slower CONNECTING to a Page than an iPhone 3g, on the same network!!? Gimmie a brea!. Same hz /band settings.
Constant crashing, no bookmark organization, no Site icon in URL bar, inconsistent text /link selection, no way to share links or urls easily, NO WAY TO CHAGE THE USER AGENT!
UI / UX is slow and choppy.
The browser is built with AIR for Pete sakes!!!! What a joke.
The only good things about the Browser for me is that trough flash, I can watch all my streaming sports and listen to live radio.
I'd never trust this browser to do anything work related or anything of real importance.
Can't wait to see what BB10 has to offer because if RIM hasn't ironed out these issues,....it's game over.
