Those of you who have been using BlackBerry 10 for awhile may have noticed that its browser blazing fast. Now when I first read this report from NewRelic (via VentureBeat) about the BlackBerry browser taking the lead (by a huge margin) over all other mobile browsers I had one hanging question.

On the other hand my buddy Bla1ze over @CrackBerry is suggesting it is because of the BlackBerry UserAgent which has Mozilla/5.0 in it. The only thing is that quite a few browsers have that same section in their useragent…
