For you folk that like to use Hub Browser for BlackBerry 10 you'll want to be hitting up BlackBerry World today as an update should be waiting for you. This update is primarily focussed on security (with the inclusion of the new feature 'Timelock' and an application password) but also implemented are other features, based on user feedback.

With BlackBerry 10 users being creatures of productivity, we all value the wonderful BlackBerry Hub. If you've not looked into Hub Browser before it essentially allows you to open web pages from within the hub itself, users may view and open web links sent via email, text messages, or any other application.

This cuts out switching between the Hub and the native BlackBerry 10 browser which doesn't automatically get opened when Hub Browser is installed - clever.
