    I was tinkering around with settings and set the browser setting under Developer Tools for Disk Cache to False.

    It seems noticeably faster after this setting. Not that it was slow to begin with, but pages seem to render way better now.

    Not sure if this is a Passport only thing or not.

    Thanks,
    However, this article seems to say that disk cache would speed up the loading, but that's the opposite of what I've noticed.
    I also tried this on my wife's Z10 and the difference was not as noticeable, if any.

    On the Passport, though, it was very noticeably faster.

    Must be the placebo pills again because to me it seems slower by turning the disk cache off.

    Umm, how about a stopwatch test? Load page and time with watch. Restart phone and change setting. Load page and time with watch. Must be done in same location on same network. Very easy to be at least a little bit scientific.

    I think what they meant to say was that the disk cache enabled searches the phone for the data that may reduce data costs and access times, but with current Internet speeds, it's unlikely to be faster, effectively it's quicker to fetch the entire page anew than to seek data and then fetch if needed. The only downside to having disk cache off, is it would use a greater amount of data.

    Technology eh!
