    I'm crossing my fingers waiting for bb10 to come but my patience is running out. My browser is running like a 1950s automobile while I have the fastest internet. I'm having freezes lots, keyboard freezing and all sorts of frustrations. does anyone else have this problem? I'm beginning to think that an ipad mini is what I need

    I have done a hard reset a lot of times for the problem, I'm just scared to do another security wipe due to the painstaking time it takes to sign apps and sideload them

    I'm running lota of sideloads no issues at all. I wish people would quit suggesting this has any bearing on anything to do with anything. perhaps you should all try the beta and move forward instead of the same ole same ole complaints.

    Last Tuesday, for the first time in several months, my PB froze on me. Then again. And AGAIN. Three times in one day!! The last time, while I was composing an email, which I had to retype. I was furious. Either RIM or Verizon had pushed some incompatible update to my PB, or I was a victim of a Flash attack. (I had visited a lot of new websites the day before.)

    Anyhoo, I decided it was finally time to take the Beta plunge. I simply visited https://developer.blackberry.com/register , entered my PB's PIN and my email address, and almost instantly, I received a notification to upgrade to 2.1.0.840. A couple of hours later, the 480MB download was complete and I was up and running 2.1. I didn't have to reinstall any apps, though I'm not a sideloader, so YMMV.

    In the long run, much better than smashing my PB.

    On certain sites the keyboard will lag, like on Facebook and google for some strange reason. Every other sites it works fine. Not sure what the issue is? Other than that the browser works fine for me.

    Even on 2.1, every now and again it's worth clearing the browser cache like Chrysalis1156 said. I also clear local storage, I was clearing cookies too but recently found I didn't need to clear cookies and it's much easier not having to reenter passwords.

    I've had my Playbook since day one and have had a few issues. Mostly, my issues have been due to my own ignorance of how to fix them. These forums have always provided help when I simply ask a question while detailing the issue.

    So, a browser clearing and a hard reset always gets things running smoothly again. I'm using the beta, which is a great suggestion too.

    Nope....never had any of those problems. My PB browser is very fast and I've never had the PB freeze since I bought it at release. No freezing, no keyboard problems...nothing.

    I cheated- but only a little. If you notice at the beginning of the vid, on my favorites bar there are two browsers, one is the stock browser and the other is Air Browser, which someone extracted from the BB10 dev alpha. It's similar to but not exactly identical to the native browser. Anyhow, I run the stock Browser with java and flash turned on, and Air Browser with both turned off. In the vid I'm running Air, and with java and flash off, browsing is way fast with little if any checkerboarding. I'll use Air for general browing, since most sites you don't really need flash or java. I'll use the stock browser when I know I'll need one or both, YouTube or some other video site for example. Java and flash, particuarly java, it seems, is what slows things down considerably. So running two browsers, I have the best of both worlds- java and flash when I need them, and high speed browsing when I don't.

    ahhh thanks for the clarification yea I also notice the bad lags when it comes to java, also there is this one site that drives me nuts because of the autosaving feature and it makes typing excruciatingly slow!! other sites I don't have that problem!
