    The Q10s browser reader mode makes a good job of most of the sites I visit - not perfect on all of them. If you post a couple of the sites you use the most, ill take a look.

    I was a Z30 user, never thought i'd even last 1 week on a Q10 because of its smaller display, but guess what? I'm never gonna sell my Q10! Haha :

    It is too small for reading. Tablet will be more suitable for reading.

    I like the size of the Q10 screen for reading, as I have to only move my eyes and not my head to read

    ever considered checking the Q10 webpage of blackberry.com ??? You have a good and wonderful description about surfing and brwosing the web on it! Works like a charm.

    I read tons of websites on my Q10. Between double tapping to zoom a page to paragraph width and reader mode (press 'R' for the shortcut) I find reading a pleasure on the Q10.

    The keyboard shortcuts really make it easy to navigate pages:

    Space bar - page down scroll
    Shift+space - page up
    P - previous page
    N - next page
    L - reload

    I use my Q10 for everything. When I pick up an iPad, I find it a pain to use, too big and heavy and no keyboard shortcuts. I read novels on it, I find it just about perfect. There is also a lot of square pictures and videos on the web thanks to the popularity of Instagram which means they fit perfectly on the screen, no letterbox. I find browing the web to be excellent.

    I have developed some habits with Q10 browsing. Whenever I see an embedded YouTube or Vimeo video, I press on the link in the top left of the video so that I am taken to YouTube mobile in a new tab. This way you get an optimized video that saves data and plays without freezing. I can the switch quickly back to the other tab and even leave the video playing if I like.

    I also open a lot links from Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook etc. The BB10 OS is so good for swiping from app to app, it really adds to the whole browsing experience.

    I love it, I think the Classic will be even better as you can use a cursor for precision.

    Maybe I'm not a full browser user, but web reading on it is amazing. The screen is small, but the page fits nicely. With bigger phones I had, zooming was mandatory, but with the Q10, I haven't zoomed any page at all.

    My opinion is that it is not very good for web browsing. It's usable, but if you need to do a LOT of web browsing then it's definitely not the phone for you. I don't do a lot of web browsing but if I did I would pick up a second phone, a budget 4.5 or 5 inch touch screen probably, and carry it aswel because there's no way in hell I'm getting rid of my Q10 ha I love it too much.

    Work's good for me. Browser is good. Very user friendly. But I doubt you would watch the Super Bowl on it.

    I convert most articles to Reader mode. Never felt I've had to compromise.

    I LOVE the Reader mode, which works for most web pages. Reader mode can eliminate all the clutter and ads, while displaying with a consistent Font Size -- and of course, in easier-to-read white text on black background. Almost like having a bigger screen, so easy to read -- even for seniors.

    No need to spread fingers to increase font size, and adjust. Any other cell phone offer this feature?

    Just wanted to tag on a few more shortcuts since I love browsing on my q10.

    T - will go to top of the page
    B - will go to bottom of the page

    Well I read an article from the Economist today and was easy. Would it be better in a tablet? Yes. Would it be better in the crowded subway today with that said tablet? Nop

    It's a phone not a tablet so it won't be as big. However, for me it works better so I can focus easier on the place I'm reading rather than the whole page. But to each his own.

    Reader mode is awesome. Doesn't work with every page I've visited, but most. Also love the one touch shortcuts mentioned above.

    I agree with the shortcuts, keyboard shortcuts makes up for the shorter screen.

    If you do a lot of reading, then the Q10 is not the ideal device for that. But for its size and what it does, it handles itself quite well.

    And I agree with what others have said - reader mode and keyboard shortcuts help.

    My Q10 is most fun here, in the realm of crackberry, and if I can't read then I hold the phone closer to my face, no tablet needed!!!!
