Search feature + Ad blocker in stock web browser?

 

Hi, 

 

Any chance we'll see one day these features on the playbook ?.....Nearly ALL web browsers have a Word search function (i.e. find word occurrences in currently displayed page).

 

An Ad blocker would be also a great improvement.

 

Rgs, Elj

Good points. I hope these improvements might come with BB10 for the PlayBook.

 Anyone know if these features are in the Z10's stock browser? That will indicate whether or not it is likely to be included in the BB10 for the PlayBook.

Yes, the "find on page" is present in the Z10 browser.

The search function is on the Z10 browser, it is called "find on page", as for the ad blocker I have no idea
