    Kiwi.
    Yes.

    Kiwi has TLS 1.3, is the fastest Android browser I've benchmarked on BB10, has dark mode, is Chromium-based, and you can move the address bar to the bottom.

    I like the bottom bar of Kiwi but Firefox works best for me because it doesn't crash if it's running in the background and supports notifications.

    I need fo test it more, but I was getting better results from Facebook and YouTube on Firefox vs kiwi, though other websites like Amazon really were slow.

    Fennec is just the F-droid (slightly forked) version of Firefox.

    Kiwi is chromium based.

    One will do better on some sites than the other, and vice-versa. On balance, chromium is usually both faster and more compatible.

    Just tested this and the speed is no trade off to the failure of rendering websites properly or fully. I will stick with Fennec cause it has been very very reliable.

    But Thank you

    How do we change the default Native Browser to the KIWI browser? Also, does KIWI have an "Add to Home Screen" function? I also like that KIWI has Dark mode. Thanks in advance,

    Cannot be done. And, no there is no "add to Home Screen". Best you can do is make bookmarks.

    Oh, and this applies to ALL android browsers BTW.

    Thank you. Well, I will continue using the Native Browser and the "Open In" feature to switch to KIWI when sites don't render. Too bad, quite a capable Browser for BB10, and does not heat the phone.

    I have chosen Fennec as additional browser since Firefox is my main browser on other devices ans I can sync bookmarks easily. Otherwise, Kiwi is a good choice.
    Still love native browser and use its reader mode often but with limited selection of sites.

    From Wizard QZ-7000 to Passport SE...what a journey

    No, it requires Android 5.0 or greater.

    That would explain why y’all don’t talk about it.
