For those of you who have playbooks, check this new browser out. it is a native app, made for the PB and not an android port. Absolutely excellent and better than the stock PB browser. Some nice features and smooth ui.

Surprised it took BB years and still not got the stock browser working well, but this guy has whipped up a browser in a couple of months using native code and it runs great. Tabbed browsing, adblocker, a youtube video ripper, even a scroll pad which lets you scroll up and down by just pressing one area of a screen. Finally have some text reflow options too now and user agent selections. Using iplayer on the stock browser used to go to mobile site, now you can view the desktop iplayer site.

BB should give this dev a job! Considering it's an early build, running very well so far, Look forward to seeing it develop. You guys should give it a try.

Yep I'm quite impressed. Such a shame there weren't many developers onboard this guy has shown what is possible. Put the bb devs to shame too! Works really well. It's feature rich yet still light and responsive.
