    Why can't RIM have bb browser do that? What does it affect? It feels like it a positive thing....don't know what you got against Opera

    I love Opera it's my browser of choice. I would prefer to see Skyfire or something more advanced sans Safari or the Webkit Palm uses. But RIM's broswer is like using one of those old ham radios lol

    I wish that the BB browser had the ability to have multiple windows open like the G1 browser.

    I think it was the guys over at BB Geeks mentioned that if you uncheck javascript support in the browser options, the speed will dramactically increase.
    I've tried that and didn't notice a huge increase in speed, but it maybe worth a try,

    It helps for some sites but overall I find that it makes very little difference.
