    I have one simple request for any browser - for me to check the news online via a newspaper website I like. Or to google search for something. That's all. I don't need 50 billion pages up at once or in the background.

    So my 9900 was dying and the website and pages were taking ages to load. The Classic is taking even longer and I have to try the reload button before it actually manages to do anything.

    I testedthe 9900 side by side with the Classic and the Classic took at least twice as long.

    Is it just my experience that the Classic has an inordinately slow browser?

    For previous 9900 users - if the Classic browser speed is also an issue for you - can you post?

    I'm considering moving to a Passport, but am hesitant that its speed would be any better.

    I can't fact having to move away from Blackberry in order to get a decent browser speed.

    I don't find the browser experience to be fast either, compared to my note 4. But my Classic isn't my only device either so what I use it for works perfectly

    Are you certain that BlackBerry Classic browser that slow? I think your WiFi connection or your carrier connection is slow. :/

    There's a difference between browser speed and page loading. Page loading speed is your DNS and connections to the Internet. Browser speed is how fast it can load and redraw the output.

    Your BlackBerry 7 phone runs with compression on the Internet connection, but also has to decompress before displaying. Not everything is compressed like zip files and mp3's.

    You may just have crappy wifi doing IPV6 Lookups before ipv4 (default behavior in many routers) that would slow down both noticeably.
