    I tried BEOL but it was too slow and uncomfortable at operation.
    And I hate Android apk.
    What is good at BEOL?

    Pretty much all android browsers are slow to open. Doesn't matter which one you use as the android runtime has to initiate before the app can run and that is all just a part of a slower, older chip that BB10 runs on to begin with. Either you put up with a slower device or you move on. BEOL is a stripped down chromium browser with bookmarks and a nice url paste function. Try Kiwi browser also and experiment with others such as Brave, Yubrowser, firefox etc but you will find that they are ALL slow to open on these older devices.

    You won't get anything better on BB10. Unless there is a miracle we have reached the end with native browsers because all BB10 browsers use the same outdated and non-upgradeable webkit.

    Yup. I posted the link to the thread where fishlevel posts his updates in post #180 of this forum. The first post in that thread has the latest github link to BEOL that Brookie just posted again. (Thanks Brookie!).

    I tried using the stock browser, Browsie and Zeuss browsers with no luck, getting error message saying my browser was no longer supported. I finally tried QBrowser & opened the page.
    So I managed to download the .apk file & it started to be installed. Then before it would finish it wanted access to my location! I thought this was a privacy oriented browser? I haven't given any apps access to location, much less one that I would be using in ways that would give away personal data. Is there a way to install it without giving away my location?

    Just my $.02, YMMV ! ;-) sent via my Q10

    Do someones of the bb10 app developers(ex.CellNinja) render any of opensource browser code to native BB10 apps?
    Or,do someones screate a new original BB10 browser that compatible with today's internet world?
    What I want to say is those things.
    And why I want to say so is that I just want to use BB10 phone(Q10 or classic) for long time.

    No and it cannot be done by any BB10 developer unless its BlackBerry itself.

    Probably not. At this stage, you’re having to compromise to keep BB10 running..

    It's all about the $$$$$$$$$$$. Return on investment is NOT favorable. Sure, technically it could be modernized but there are not enough BB10 users to justify the costs of developing the browser to a modern standard.

    Certain aspects of BB10 will always be stuck in 2013-2015 and cannot be changed.

    hum...I understood.
    But I think,there are some of programming technicians who is amateur,who is doing programming just as hobby.
    I hope if they would create the newest BB10 browser or anything,or render opensource newest browser for BB10.
    Is it no hope?

    Anytime, shankar - glad that worked for you!

    Hi Ragbert. I did what you suggested about using a different folder, and downloaded to the Android folder under MISC. Thanks!

    scubafan, unlike native BB10 apps, which let you turn off permissions individually, Android ports use an all-or-nothing approach. One thing that helps me: I keep location services off on my phone, so there's nothing for apk apps to find, whether I say yes or no. Unless you use apps that require location services to be on by default, try turning them off in your phone's Settings. That should bring you some peace of mind when installing apps that try to access them. .

    Smart idea Ragbert! I was already leaving location services off except for when I do Maps, but I was just trying to save some battery. Now I've got an even better reason...

    I seem to recall that you could manage Android app permissions selectively using Ghost Commander or a permissions app that was created for Ice Cream Sandwich. Maybe my memory is playing tricks on me. I'll check when I get home from work.

    You can possibly alter permissions with the android app Lucky Patcher, save the apk then install on a BB10 device.

    The app that allows you to toggle (some) Android permissions is called App Ops.

    Yep, that's another one but I think you need a rooted android device to use it. Could be wrong about that.

    Ragbert, I could do that but on occasion I like to post or use the Gasbuddy app or check the local weather. So every time I wanted to do that it would be a pain. One thing I wasn't sure about is whether the app "phoned home" only when I actually open the browser or if it collected data all the time whether or not I opened it?

    I think you need an older version - anything above ver 2.xx requires that you have android 5.0 and above. Maybe you have 1.9xxx or so?
