    I have it set on desktop mode so I don't get mobile versions, but it is either on or off, unlike android where you can pick if you want individual sites in desktop view, that's not a problem though, biggest problem is double thumb tap doesn't zoom in enough to read text so I have to pinch, the z10 OS is meant to be one handed, but like this it is not. Browser is fast and smooth but you lose all of your open tabs if it becomes the dreaded 9th app!
    So as with a lot of things on bb10, 90% brilliant, need an update to sort out the other 10% but I'm sure it's coming

    Hopefully they'll "correct" the 9th app situation.

    I'm guessing as moels come out in the future, the 8 open app thing will increase as system memory increases.

    I read somewhere you can turn on a setting that opens previous tabs when you open the browser even if it had shut down.

    My thoughts are that they will have to figure out a way to tombstone an app without infringing on patents.

    That is correct. If you go into the settings, you set the browser to either show your homepage (bookmarks and history by default, or a specific page) or to open the tabs you last had open in it. Whichever works for you.

    Personally I'm really liking the new browser. It's fast, it handles just about anything I've thrown at it, and yeah.... It rocks pretty hard. You absolutely won't be disappointed. As I recall, Java is off by default, but the performance isn't impacted at all by having it on in my experience. It's silky smoothe, very responsive, will totally do what you want.

    That will depend on what you do with your browser really.

    Like I've said a bunch of times, the whole 'blackberry compresses all the data' stuff was wishful thinking and has been for a long time. Regular web pages, even java heavy ones don't use a lot of data, and don't on any platform. The things that use a lot of data are video and audio, and BIS never could compress those.

    Your data usage now will not be noticably higher than you are are used to it being with the same amount of usage.

    I don't know how accurate this double thumb tap works on other platforms but talking about reading web pages have you tried 'reader' option on Z10? I have never seen anything on any mobile before, one handed reading with the option of increasing or decreasing text size. I do think thats better than other platform browsers' ability of double thumb tapping.

    Thank you all the your input. Looks like BlackBerry really did their homework. Can't wait to hear from others about the browser performance.

    I get that sometimes on my pb. Sometimes after it just sits there and does nothing I will open my favorite for CB and I'm logged in.
