    As mentioned, the Air browser is the browser on the Dev Alpha. That's the divce running a BB10 OS. not a full / final version but the one to develope apps.

    The AIR browser is the existing browser that is both on the BlackBerry PlayBook and the Dev Alpha. It's as the name states, it's a browser made in Adobe AIR. It's what we've been all using on the PlayBook. On the latest Dev Alpha code update, they renamed the bar file to airBrowser.bar as they want to distinguish the AIR Browser from the Cascades/C++ Browser that they are developing internally. Same goes for the Camera.

    With two native browsers you can have each one have it's own settings.

    Very true Joe! Too bad we still can't edit bookmarks. Looking forward to seeing the new Cascades Browser.

    Yes, I'm so glad that the new native apps will be built with Cascades. Going to be some great apps.
