    For me the native browsers that i've tried seem to be missing one aspect of functionality or another that has left me wanting. And the big name browsers on android run too badly to be useful.
    But, i've tried a few, and Pale Moon (a fork of Firefox) works just as well as the native browsers I have tried, with a lot more features that I enjoy.

    Also I have just downloaded Via Browser from the play store and that runs really nicely as well.

    Just thought i'd post in case others have had the same frustrations as me, if so check these out.

    I got google play from following the instructions in 'cobalts google play has landed' thread in the blackberry 10 OS forum on here.
    I'm not sure the version it was installed via Google play. It's a bit of messing around, but after its done I don't bother hunting around for APK's , I just download it from play store.
    I just checked, in 'about pale moon' and it said Pale Moon is 25.9.6 but 'Pale Moon: Release notes
    27.2.0 (2017-03-18)' try either of those.

    Via's homepage is here http://via.1year.cc/ they have Download link for it. I couldn't see the version, but sure u can sideload it. The dark theme goes lovely with the passports screen.Both work really well, but via just looks slicker.

    Have you tried Browsie Browser and changed the Desktop User Agent to FirFox? Works very well.

    I too have done what The_Passporter has and it is working for me. Unfortunately, with the last update, my native browser has really struggled. At times it just seems to not want to work.

    The_Passporter-I have got Browsie, on user agent I haven't got a firefox agent option, and unless I have it in night mode all the options on the slide out panel are really dull and hard to see.

    Polarity is another nice option -- an Android browser that performs very well on BB10.

    I just noticed that you can change the User Agent from BB10 to iPhone or other. I plan on playing with that today

    Thanks_the passporter. I found the firefox user agent. Do you know why the text is so dark on the right hand side menu and how to change it?

    Not sure. Maybe go into all the settings an see if you can reset to default. In all categories. If not perhaps the easiest thing would be to uninstall and reinstall after reboot. Hopefully it fixes that.

    Another browser that wprks really well with passport is onion tor with the orbot browser.

    You fake your location and browse securely as each data packet that the website u search ask u for... it gets encrypted so they cant access the info they just stole from u. Its the most secure way to access the net.

    Lol Tor is not secure but has a strong facade of security. Infact, it raises law enforcement suspicions when used.

    Another vote here for Dolphin. It's free, simple and can handle flash (most of the time) in a pinch.

    Pale Moon seems good. But oddly enough, keyboard scrolling with the Passport is reversed. Weird

    SO it seems that we stand at:

    Palemoon 2
    Browsie 2
    Polarity 1
    Dolphin 2
    Tor 1

    Hence, no definitive one over the others.
