    For those who dont know, HTML5 is the latest version of HTML, the language that acts as the digital skeleton of most web pages. Probably the coolest thing about HTML5 is that it does more than just power web pages it also powers web apps. These apps can work both online and offline to provide an experience much like a native app, meaning mobile browsers will have to be equipped to handle HTML5 quickly and smoothly.

    This is where the BlackBerry 10 browser fits in nicely. The BlackBerry 10 browser itself is an HTML5 application, working as a gateway that serves up pages written in nearly any programming language, including HTML5. But thats only half of the story. The BlackBerry 10 browser is also an extremely revved-up result of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet browser (which may just have the best HTML5 score for a tablet browser in the industry). This is the browser available in new BlackBerry 10 smartphones. This allows for not only compatibility of pages designed now and in the future, but also a faster browsing experience.

    Whos excited?

    Hey, positive excitement is just fine - at least, in my opinion.

    Got the keys to Downton Abbey?

    Another form of Paradise: Yosemite National Park. Glacier Point to be more precise and that is Half Dome in the background.

    I've been on top of it a few times using The Cables and while it was still legal generations ago, I slept up there:

    I don't get excited about these things, but certainly very interested to find out if we PB owners get a major upgrade when BB10 is released.

    But, One part of the OPs post puzzled me:
    "The BlackBerry 10 browser is also an extremely revved-up result of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet browser (which may just have the best HTML5 score for a tablet browser in the industry)"

    Isn't that the browser than many criticize? (I don't, but then I have no experience with other tablet browsers)
