    What website did they go to in the BB10 vs. WP8 second test? That site took forever to load and I want to try it on my device to test as well.

    Otherwise, it looks good.

    I know many won't agree. But I don't care about a 2 seconds delay. What I want is to be able to browse any site and enjoy any features.
    It's cool that a dev (read prototype) device can handle about has fast or faster than others; good for the buzz.

    But once again, what makes me perform is what I can get, not how many +/- milliseconds one process may take.
    This kind of tests, once in real conditions (no cache, final devices, carrier performance/type of connectivity, ...) will not mean much.

    I want the most compatible browser, I want HTML, I want Flash ... and if RIM adds Silverlight (mostly for corp usage, and MS resources) it'll be THE browser experience in hand.
    And I don't think there's a competitor on the line.

    Thanks for that. Nice to see the browser has definite promise. Between now and launch, it's just a matter of deciding to go with touch or qwerty model. Uggh, decisions, decisions....

    If they can do that, I'll be dansing in the street. Do you have any idea if those resources are a planned addition??

    Not even a start of a rumor ... just a pray.

    RIM doesn't have Silverlight on BB10 --- but RIM does have Microsoft's PlayReady DRM (the Microsoft DRM solution behind Silverlight) on BB10. Netflix (which uses Microsoft PlayReady DRM) should be available on day 1 on the BB10 launch. Video at 43 minutes.

    Well, I wasn't in Netflix's perpective but thanks for that. Yet, it remains to Netflix to do the job ... yet we (I) don't know. Could be one of the "surprises".

    Anyone can make a netflix app. RIM can make it themselves if they want to. RIM just couldn't in the past with the Playbook because RIM didn't have the Microsoft DRM ported to QNX.

    I do agree with you but I thought those tests were the closest to a real situation and not the usual plain and not representative html test. What RIM needs here is THE best browser ever, point. That means most compatible and ALSO fast!

    From what I see.. They are on the right path

    Well Chrome on Android just opened the page in about 5 seconds fully loaded. So either that guys connection is garbage in the video, or something went horribly wrong on both devices.

    I'm on a Galaxy Nexus using 4.2.1. I have no video of it but I just did it twice and the site fully loads in about 5 seconds. I have a 65Mbps connection on Wifi. It took 8 seconds over 1Mbps 3G speeds.

    My guess is something went wrong with the site (hence the error on WP8). I just loaded it on my 9900 in 30 seconds and I am in a place that masquerades 2G as 3G. I think a retest on a decent connection is needed for that site.
