    Title says it all. BlackBerry, if you care about your users on BB10, please fix the browser.
    Pressing hyperlinks doesn't always trigger a tap. Long pressing hyperlinks doesn't always open the options menu, or it opens it for the previous hyperlink I selected.
    If too many tabs are open, the browser can go unresponsive. Pressing the tabs menu will make the left part of the browser go black, and I can't switch tabs.
    The ryanair website is unusable. The airbnb website is unusable.
    Scrolling down webpages is not smooth at all.
    Some websites won't open because they use certificates which are not recognised by BlackBerry or something. It's all very well being super secure, but sometimes I NEED to access that specific page. Browsers on iOS have no problem with that page. Browsers on Android have no problem with that page.
    The list goes on and on. It was a great browser on 10.2, it's a terrible one on 10.3.

    We don't have a lot of apps. I've accepted that. I thought I could do most of the things I need to do via the browser. It's not the case though! A more capable browser would allow me to keep this device a good 2 years longer.

    Please... just one request... make the browser decent again. I want to hang on to my Passport for as long as possible but at this rate, I just can't.

    You are not tied to the default Browser. In fact, I recommend Browsie Browser.

    It's $3. There are other free alternatives too that were pretty good.

    No offense to the developers, but they are no where near as capable, smooth, or fast as the current native browser as it is.

    I hear what you're saying Chris. I just don't think we're going to get any more updates/fixes for our BB10 devices. Sure, I hope BB will surprise us, but as of today, it doesn't look like it. :-(

    On the other hand, Browsie was updated with new features even just only back in April, 2017.

    Version: 2.0.5.5
    Released: Apr 26th, 2017

    There's a reason why it's called the "OS Memorial" thread.

    At least there's still some sort of activity for 10.3.3. So... hope springs eternal, then.

    This thread should throw some light on the certificate issue. You're perfectly capable of resolving that.

    1- that is only for one type of certificates
    2- I shouldn't need to configure my browser to be able to use it.

    Still, I'm sure this will help to some extent - thanks!

    1. The method applies to all certificate authorities you wish to trust, I've added four that are supported on BlackBerry 10.3.3 (I'm still on 10.3.2) and do not encounter issues regularly anymore.
    2. Unfortunately we're on an OS with minimal support so if you don't help yourself your stuck with the issues.

    You're welcome, I find waiting for a page to fully load before interacting with it helpful for stability. I never get to a position where the tab number causes an issue because the browser has usually lost my session before then.

    Some of the same limitations can be found in other browsers since some aspects of these apps rely on the structure of BB10.

    It'll never be fixed. There's no one working on it and there hasn't been for a while now, hence the shape it is in.

    Awww nuts. Oh well, guess I'll just have to wait patiently for other features like Hypervisor and Lithuanian language support.

    See, I thought this before but how can 10.3.3 be on its way with new features if they have no developers at all behind it? They've got to have a few left that can fix some stuff up.

    10.3.3 is here and the new features in the BB10 browser, what little there is, are nothing but left overs that were already in the line for over a year. (Remember, 10.3.3 was delayed forever) And you've gone from talking about the browser to the whole OS, I'm talking about the browser strictly. The leaders are gone, there have been no upstream improvements to the browser in forever and it is increasingly falling behind in standards and will continue to do so.

    Yep. Exactly why I shucked my z30. Had the browser kept working I'd have probably continued to use it for the past year

    While the native browser is far from perfect, it's generally usable for me. Could it be because I didn't fall for the 10.3.3 update? Can't tell for sure, but I'm just glad my browser still works smoothly.

    What OS version are you on? Do you use it intensively or just the occasional light browsing?
