    Personally, I love Opera Mini 5 Beta 2 and I am a user who constantly fought with using a third party browser on a consistent, daily basis. I used Opera Mini on my Curve 8330 and enjoyed it, but did not use it on my Storm 1. I "stuck" with the native browser on my 9530 and didn't care enough for any other browser enough to forgo the default..until OM5B2 on my 9550.

    This browser is, by far, the fastest loading with the most accurate rendering of any browser I've ever used on a BlackBerry (Bolt, Opera Mini 4, multiple versions of the default browsers, etc.) This is just my personal opinion, but I think it increases the value of Storm ten fold. Tabbed browsing is priceless on a device that I use the default browser for a lot of audio streaming (moodio, SiriusStreamer, etc.). I can't tell you how much I love having multiple web sites up at the same time thanks to the tabs. The Start Page lets you load about 9 bookmarks, but displays them as "previews" or "windows" of the actual site, which is a refreshing change to the normal text bookmarks (you still have the normal bookmarks which hold ALOT more than 9). The one thing I would like to see is the ability to have multiple pages for the Start Page and you can just scroll to the right for pg 2 and so on.

    Can't wait for the webkit browser, but this certainly is keeping me happy just fine.

    i have the 9530 and i use opera mini, bolt and the bb browser every day. i like all three for different uses.

    1. bb browser: for mobile web sites like bbos and bgr mobile. and if i need to download anything

    2. opera mini: for speed and just plain surfing the web, it is the fastest imo. for me OM shows full web rendering about 85% of the time. my other promblem is about 50% of the time i get a blank screen unless i click on it and zoom in, this gets annoying, but i still like it and still use it alot.

    3. bolt: imo has the most riches web page rendering and i get that 100% of the time. i use it when i go to non mobile websites and want look at all pix, view videos thats on thier web page and blog.

    can't wait to get a better browser from rimm.

    Opera keep on mentioning "unable to connect, please review your network settings." Things comes back to normal after a battery pull. But it repeat again after that.

    Anyone facing this problem?

    The only experts I know of for Opera mini issues is on the Opera community site. I read it regularly and see problems I have and then get the solutions. FYI, at that site various people with a wide variety of phone have a wide variety of problems.

    I am facing the same problem on my Blackberry Curve. Did your issue resolve for the need to pull out battery to get Opera working?
    If yes, then do tell me the work around.

    Thanks
