The Hub is one of the biggest and best features of BlackBerry 10. The place where all your messsages go. You don't even need to open a separate for some things. Twitter messages, Facebook messages, BBMs and more can all open within the Hub to make things more efficient. One developer has developed an app will allow you to also view webpages within the Hub. Currently, tapping on a link from the Hub, or anywhere for that matter, will open up the web Browser. But if you want that seamless experience and want to view that link within the Hub then look no further than Card Browser.
Card Browser will download as an app but once you set things up, you don't really need to open it up again in the future. To get all set up, just tap and hold on a link from within the Hub, then tap Open in, from the next screen menu select Card Browser, also check the box against Set as default app beforehand if you want to use Card Browser for this purpose every time in the future. Once that's done, you're set.
Card Browser is not meant to replace the native Browser, it is more of a supplement to your browsing experience.
