    Best browser for Storm

    I was just reading the thread on desktop browsers and it sparked a question I've had for a while w. my Storm.

    Blackberry browser, Internet Explorer, and Firefox and the 3 choices on browser identification and BB and IE are the 2 choices for browser on the Storm. Does anyone have any feedback on what's the optimal choice for each of those...and I mean optimal from a memory management and browser speed standpoint.

    Thanks!

    I have heard the smoothest, fastest one is the BB browser.

    I have tried firefox and it was very slow. (due to loading all the pics of a normal web page)

    Nothing integrates better with a BB Browser, than a BB Browser,...imo..you always loose some functionality with other browsers.

    I'm happy with the standard BB Browser. Since updating to .122 it is pretty fast on my phone.

    I use Opera Mini for almost all my web browsing I love the speed and full page view that it offers.

    Bolt was super slow on my phone (and I mean slooooow) I loved the changes on the new version, but couldn't stand how slow it was.

    I found the speed with Bolt to be comparable with that of Opera Mini. Both are much faster than the RIM browser. Bolt had a few quirks that I grew tired of. Opera is nice, but downloads still must pass through the RIM browser, which I don't like.
