    Opera mini

    How does Opera mini 5.2 work on S/2 compared to the S/1? Is it faster? Any other comparisons?

    Thanks for the info. Did you have the S/1 and try it there? Did it work better?

    Opera Mini 5 beta works ok on my S2, altho I have it loaded pretty much as a backup in the event BIS takes a dump. Don't use it on a regular basis--the "touch-not-click" interface is annoying, among other issues, but not nearly as touch finicky as 4.2.

    I can not speak for the S1. However, on the S2 Opera Mini Beta 2 works great for me. The touch not click function took a little getting used to, but once you get the targeting down it flys through webpages very quickly. The tabbed browsing has never slowed my phone down, and the start page is very handy if you just want to check out a few pages real quick.

    Opera Mini

    The problem I had on my S1 was the numerous bookmarks in 4.2 did not transfer to 5.2, so I lost a lot of work. Unfortunately, I deleted 4.2 and when I reinstalled it, bookmarks, history, etc. were wiped. Working with 5.2 was not that easy. Copy and paste did not seem to work. I could remove items from the start page, but it would not allow me to enter my own start page items. So, rather than start over with Opera Mini, I plan to use Bolt.

    Personally I really like Opera Mini. I find it to be way faster at loading pages than the default browser. Although it does take a little bit to get used to as it uses touch and not click. With that said, it isn't a perfect browser and could be improved.

    The touch feature was slightly annoying to me, it was hard to switch the mindset from click to touch on the same device. Other than that, it worked fairly well. It did seem a bit odd that any time I needed to type in a password or username, it would go to a full page blank screen to type it in.
    Have you ever wondered why things intended to make our lives simpler keep getting more complicated to use?

    I had opera on both S1 and S2 when it comes to speed I find them to be quite similar when using 3G. However when I turn on Wifi and then use Opera with my S2 the speed difference is unreal. My G/F has a S1 with Opera so I have done side by side tests with it. My only issue with Opera is I have yet to figure out how to copy and paste anyone know?

    I've been trying to use "post-it" notes, with no success as of yet...

    Opera mini 5 works perfectly on WIFI after installation. However after a while it stops working even BB Browser still working perfectly. The weird part is I didn't do any changes on setting both on Opera & BB Browser.
    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?

    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.
