    Yah, so for my job, I need to submit something via a web form. On the PC, it works fine, on older PC's it is a bit sluggish. Guess how it works on the Q10? It was so sluggish it couldn't keep up with my typing. And if it was simply taking time for the text to catch up, that's not a big deal. But it was actually missing letters, missing most of the spaces, and basically I had to type it out one letter at a time slowly or wait until I'm back indoors in front of a PC.

    So please tell me that if my phone had a faster CPU that wouldn't fix that issue...

    Edit: Oh, and let me guess, I am the only person, in the only business with a website with a web form that isn't completely optimized...

    Have a Q10 Z10 and Z30... no issue like this for me. I have done plenty of desktop mode forms without issue or sluggishness. Wait... were you complaining that your new phone isn't new enough to process a really old Web page? lol

    Works perfectly fine on the PC's and I'm sure if I was using a S4 or S5 it probably would have ran alright...

    Uh, I don't know or think it has anything to do with how new or old this webform was, but whether it is written in javascript, flash, or whatever, it seems to run like crap unless you have a pretty decent CPU. Sure it's most likely something they are doing wrong on their end, but basically you're going with the "I must be the only person with this problem" argument instead of coming to a solution that will work for both well and poorly coded webpages...

    The solution is to fix the poorly coded website, not throw more CPU cycles at it. The page loads, and there shouldn't be anything still being processed unless a script was still running. Perhaps you are asking for a work around.

    Once more for effect, if you need CPU cycles to enter a form, YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG.

    Ok, so I need to hack into their website to fix it and any other poorly coded website I ever encounter? Damn man, you're right, that is a much better idea than simply having a phone that could tough out anything...

    Don't worry, you're not alone. While I don't own a BB device, I do have a clone of one, and it's got specs that were mid-low end for 2012....

    We can't expect that everyone creating webpages/documents wants to take the time to optimize them, what we can expect of Enterprise level mobile devices is that they can tackle any modern task.

    Feel free to say it's not a website that your job/company controls instead of saying its for your job. That is kind of what is implied, or else it's irrelevant to the problem.

    Different code can run for different browsers. Different versions of plugins, etc. With this kind of problem, throwing more CPU doesn't necessarily fix the problem! Make an infinite loop faster, and wtf do you think that does for you?

    Anyways, without providing the website or any technical details on the type of website, I cannot help you and unsubscribing.

    The new trend is Responsive code. Even WordPress has Responsive themes now that automatically convert to mobile versions.

    There are still a lot of sites that need to catch up, but my guess is that in the next year or two, 90% of websites will have Responsive mobile code. So if you are a desktop, you see one version of a site, a tablet will render a different version and a mobile will render a third version.

    Not sure if this is what is causing the OP's problem, but I have no problem filling out forms on these sites.

    If the web form is almost unusable now, even doubling the clock cycles on a q10 won't do a whole lot.

    If it works better on another platform, I wouldn't automatically conclude that it's because the cpu is better. The form may be better optimised for that platform's browser. This is another problem entirely.

    How does the website function on other platforms (iOS, Android, Chromebook)? It may need an Intel instruction set to function correctly, or it's so badly developed it needs the extra power of a desktop processor to function. I highly doubt it's multi-treaded so throwing more cores at it wouldn't help.

    I had a registration form to fill out for a Web site, can't remember which one, and had the same problem. Type three or four letters before the showed up on the form. I just gave up. I'm sure a Q10 would have been a lot worse then my S4 since it has that slower processor. My guess is its the form and not the phone.

    I get paid for doing my job, I don't pay the people who are at my job. In other words, I'm an employee and have no control over their website. Thanks for thinking I own the thing though, I'm flattered...

    Most web forms work fine for me too. But it's one of those things, it's not a problem until you run into one where it is...

    It's definitely the form and not the phone, but I would rather just have a phone powerful enough that it won't be an issue.

    It's like if you have a car with a mediocre suspension system, and on your particular route to work, there is a road with a lot of pot holes and the asphalt is peeling and cracked. And since your car's suspension is so bad you have to drive over this road very slowly or it'll actually break the suspension. I am asking that the next year model of this car to have a suspension system good enough to handle even the roughest roads while some others are arguing that it's ok since 90% of the rest of the streets are smooth enough...

    Again, this could really be a browser issue. Throwing clock cycles at the problem in a brute force way may not get the results you're looking for.

    Why not consider a third party browser and using a different user agent?

    It might not be lack of cpu power rather some incompatibility in the code with the default BB10 browser
