    Just a question here. Why would one put another browser on a BB10 device?

    Choice is a good thing. Different preferences. Like asking "Why would anyone install Dolphin/Firefox/Opera when Chrome's already built-in on Android phones/tablets?"

    Adblocking mostly. Nothing peeves me more than using my data allowance to load banner ads.

    I'd use the built in browser more if it had one. I have Evolution browser for that precise reason though it is super buggy and sometimes doesn't load pages correctly. I'm looking for a new browser...

    Browsie is looking like a viable candidate.

    Edit: Browsie just became my default browser. Excellent app.

    How does browsie handle urls? Is it like evolution where you touch the bottom to get the address bar, then you touch inside the address bar, then you have to delete the url already in there, then you have to type out the entire url including adding the periods or dots in there manually? That's the one reason I uninstalled Evolution, it takes 5 steps to do something that takes one step in the stock browser. I like how the stock browser lets you use spaces to replace the dots too since that makes entering a url so much easier. And the keyboard shortcuts like U to start entering a new url, w to show the other tabs, g to show recently opened pages and also to enter a new url, etc. And yes, I've tried communicating that to the developer in many forums, he was following comments in a CB article for it, he was active in a forum post for it, and yes, I did buy it already at that point.

    Any of the 3rd party browsers have all of those features?

    Can't speak on the shortcuts, but yes the behavior is very similar to the stock browser. I can't believe I stayed on Evolution for so long.

    Think you can check for the shortcuts? Like while not in any typing field, press the keys on the keyboard (if you have a pkb device) like u or g or something and let me know what they do... I spent the money to buy Evolution, only to uninstall it and never use it again. Afraid to spend money on another browser until I know it will be a better experience than the stock browser. Right now other than the ads, I do really like all of the features they put back into the stock browser that the old BBOS browser had...

    And just to clarify, you can type out a url using space to substitute for the dots/periods like in the stock browser? Like if I wanted to go to crackberry.com I could type "crackberry com" and pressing enter will bring you to the website like the stock browser would do?

    I just checked the shortcuts you mentioned. U, G, and W all function the way you asked I believe. As far as using a space in place of a "." in the url bar, that doesn't work. Hope this helps.
