    Last word I read is that Netflix is already doing HTML5. I dont have an account with them, but could someone confirm whether you can use Netflix through the browser now that is partially HTML5???

    No prob. looking into it a bit further, I came across some info that said for Netflix HTML5 playback to work, the browser needs to support HTML5 (which bb10 does) but also the browser needs to support encrypted media extensions using the playready content decryption module, which, im not sure bb10 browser does..

    I saw that as well. With so many devices nowadays, it seems to be impossible to get some sort of standard across!

    Well, something is still wrong. I tried three PB browsers where I can set the user agent (Simple, Fast, and Origami). This webpage said that the Netflix HTML5 would work in Safari for OSX.
    Netflix HTML5 streaming now available in Safari on OS X Yosemite
    So I set Origami to desktop mode and user agent to Safari for desktop mode. It still asked to install the Silverlight plugin. I tried iphone, ipad, Nexus 7 (android), and android with and without desktop mode, flash, and javascript. So far no combination has worked, e.g. desktop mode wants Silverlight and mobile OSs want to install the app.

    More reading seems to target IE11 (Win8.X) and ChromeOS:
    The Netflix Tech Blog: HTML5 Video at Netflix

    Also not working on Nexus 7 (2012) with Chrome browser so I don't think any mobile OSs that have apps will change.
