    People sill use yahoo?
    Yes, it works. Why change? I have had the same contact points since the mid 90s. The hundreds of contacts I have made over a couple of decades can find me right where I should be. I learned this lesson the hard way. Change for the sake of change seldom yields positive results.

    Strange. I was reading the thread (using Origami) not planning to comment when tbe browser froze. I closed it and my PlayBook froze! Talk about bad Karma! First time for both. When everything was restarted, I couldn't find History (does Origami have a History function?). Still like the PlayBook AND Origami.

    The interface. It used to stink when I switched to gmail. Last month yahoo asked (well this was probably a phishing but visited anyway) old users to give them another chance. So I revisited. Turns out they changed a lot but still sucks.

    hundreds of contacts.....
    That's not really an issue. Importing is easy. e.g. Thousands of people switch and start/stop using work/edu emails everyday.

    Yahoo got outdated. But you don't "have to" switch. My father still loves that crap and I still love him.

    I only within the past day or so installed the Origami Browser so I can't post in depth, but so far I like it.

    So far as why everyone is going crazy over it, PlayBook owners are like a starving man on a desert island (in which you recently found out you've been *abandoned) finding a cache of fresh food, a wonderful freshly planted garden.

    *PlayBook Abandoned:
    RIP PlayBook via Thorsten Heins announcement of 2013-06-28 in which he announced he was killing the BB10 update for the PlayBook even though BlackBerry knew back in 2012-09/10 BB10 OS needs 2gb ram and the PlayBook has 1gb.) Do the math, BlackBerry waited 8-9 MONTHS later to release the info the project was being cancelled...

    I've definitely sung it's praises. It's an excellent browser that gives the PB a much-needed boost. I haven't really seen "hype"; just a lot of appreciative end users who BB left hanging in the balance. Why wouldn't we be happy about such an app?

    No crashes or hanging here, either. The versatility lies in the "modes" (booster, desktop, etc) and the fact that bookmarks remember these settings.

    By "contacts " I meant actual people I have worked with all over the world. A solid and unchanging point of contact is priceless over a lifetime. I have had people call or email me 20 years after having met them. If you are 20ish, consider establishing a "permanent" contact point with as solid a base as is possible with the changing world. I recommend staying away from pagers and social media. Flashy dies fast!

    I thought it was just me because I found it unusable to load pages. Loved the thinking of the developers with the gestures for navigating but I could not get pages to load. Will keep trying intermittently though.

    I just got it earlier and it is fantastic......it works just like my desktop browser......the stock one had the checkerboard alot.....Origami loads like a web browser SHOULD......and honestly, I don't see why we couldn't get NetFlix to work on it.....however, NetFlix does have the stupid Silverlight......

    Funny because I just downloaded it a week ago after searching for an Origami app. For me at least, once I saw there was gesture support, I was sold. Then I tried it. The stock browser works but this browser is so much more. Again it shows what could have been if Blackberry was serious in supporting the Playbook.

    If you were going to get a different browser then the stock browser which I think is unreal already. I'd get the Evolution Browser one it does everything Origami Browser/Stock but better

    Speed and checkerboarding are not the point. My ten bucks donation was for just two features. Find on page, and that wonderful dead spot scroll pad that saves me tapping stooooopid ad links every time I try to scroll. The stock browser is now unusable in comparison.

    There is no hype. Origami browser is simply Bucking Frilliant.
