    Opera Mini 4.2

    I tried Opera Mini a couple of times previously and never really liked it.
    I just downloaded again and wow.
    Maybe Crackman v7 makes difference, but the speed is amazing. I can pull up the home page of Blackberryos.com (not the mobile site) in literally seconds. With the BB browser, I could go make a cup of coffee and be back just in time for it to be loaded.

    I would be interested to know what settings others are using.
    I set mine to:
    Image quality - medium
    Font size - medium
    Protocol - HTTP

    Yep those are the settings I have been using since I downloaded it. Seem to work best for me. And yes it did get faster since installing BBC V7

    You are so right.
    I have to get use to just touching the screen in Opera unlike the BB browser where you have to actually push down to make a selection.

    yes, it is 50 times quicker IMHO... just takes some getting used to with the touch versus the click

    I also just Opera mini for browsing the web. I just wished that the keyboard would pop-up when I want to type something.

    You have to just type www.blackberryos.com instead of typing mobile address.

    You can go m.blackberryos.com or blackberryos.com/mobile.

    As far as mobile vs regular site, the browser chooses and I think it has to do with browser settings and site configurations.

    I found it annoying at first but after you get used it, it's great.
