PlayBook Browser - Problems with Google
Hello CrackBerry addicts! This is my very first forum post, because I decided to finally join rather than just lurk the site
Anyway, so I've had my PlayBook for quite a while now, and for as long as I can remember, Google has been my homepage of choice. It loads quickly, and it's obviously a great resource. However, in just the past couple days, I've noticed something that is rather annoying. When I search something on Google Search or Images, the results page loads fine, except for the fact that the page is an older version of Google. It does not prevent me from doing what I need to, but it is a little more of a hassle to use, and it is not as nice aesthetically. I have not changed any Browser settings recently, so I doubt that would be the problem, but I'm stumped. Does anyone have suggestions or solutions?

Sorry excuse for a fix.
Just started to happen the other day to me as well. You can click on a button below your image results called "switch to basic version ", I think. It has worked for me but will reset each time you use Google. There are other Google search issues so have been using bing which loads fast but layout of the search results is ugly.

Have you tried one of the alternative browsers which allow you to change User Agent (IE, chrome, etc) which might fool google?
I am starting to guess google is using its immense clout to "convince" folks that they need Android devices. But those vibes do come in more clearly when I wear my tinfoil hat!!!

- ask and maybe I'll tell...
I have been noticing an issue with Google as well. One major issues is that when I open a new windows and type Google in the address bar it goes to some weird extension and does not load the Page. I then type a letter and hit enter only for it to Google search the letter. Also some times igoogle loads sometimes it doesn't.AT&T BlackBerry Curve 8320
