Always fun to watch BB10 do the html5 ring test, it wins hands down, and its only going to get better.
as far as the comparison of the default search engine selection, kind of silly to compare that sort of feature and steps to turn it on and off.. its probably going to be a set it and forget it function for 99% of people, but its always nice to see BB10 engineers and UI designers putting in that extra effort and thought to make our lives more convenient.
WP8 not even listing google as a search enginer provider is just shameful on their part, or pure ignorance... I dont think most people know what bing is, or that it could even be considered the general publics default search provider... reminds me of the days of IE being the only allowed default browser on windows and you could never uninstall it... thank you BlackBerry for understanding that the general public wants choices.

Yea but we already no Microsoft and Google hate each other so its not really a surprise and also Google deciding not to create any of their apps for Windows 8 and even BB10 will have some Google apps for the enterprise.

Interesting, my Dev B doesnt pass ring 1 (fails 3 tests).
X - Custom font supported
X - Custom font distinguished from non-custom
X - Browser failed to complete performance test in allotted time

I actually checked what exactly failed for the Windows Phone 8 device.
If you click on the result items, and scroll down, you can see only one test which made the whole Ring 0 test to fail.
The tests for the other 2 types of dialogs passed, these are implemented.
From the official HTML5 specs: 6.4.1 Simple dialogs
It's a very minor feature from HTML5, it's such a pity and somehow funny that it practically failed the rng.io test just because of one small feature
I would like to be able to run the test for ring1 and ring2 and see how Windows Phone 8 performs on those too.
While it's not possible on rng.io site, rng.io is open source and someone could install it on his IIS on his Windows machine for example.

If microsoft don't allow skype for BB10 then that makes them huge hypocrites. Let's see what type of company they are and why or why not the world should boycott them and are boycotting them. The ball is in your court microsoft. The only question remains are you HYPOCRITES that the world should HATE ?
