    Which do you prefer? I read post about the new browser not being any faster or better than the old one and then there are several saying the opposite.

    Had the OS5 browser on the Curve and Bold, and OS6 on the Torch. I found browsing with OS5 to be a simply painful experience and consequently did as little as possible -- basically none. OS6 is infinitely better. Sites actually render correctly and faster. Between that and the larger screen of the Torch, I browse much more frequently now, although mobile browsing will never replace the desktop for me.

    The new browser is clearly better. However according to this BGR link iOS, BlackBerry OS fall at Pwn2Own | BGR it seems to have a security hole.

    Of course the WebKit browser was written originally by Apple so I guess RIM have a quick security fix to do in their next few OS leaks.

    I love the new browser. I wouldn't want to go back to the old one. There is room for improvement though.

    Love everything better about OS6 browser except for: lack of column view, and occasional crash when I'm multi tabbing (i have a 9700, maybe that's why)

    The new browser is better and I wouldn't go back to the old one. It could use column view on some sites.

    I'm really liking the OS6 browser. Tab browsing makes life a lot less painful while browsing...

    Why would you compare an old browser to a new version? Of course the new one will be better. Of course it still sucks compared to Safari or the Android browser, but at least it has tabs.
