  2. 5800 alternative web browsers

    Both Opera mobile and Opera mini are superior browsers. The main advantage of Opera mini is that pages pass via Opera's server which reduces their size and so reduces the amount of data transmitted, in case you are charged for data.



    One more setting for Opera mini if you are using a proxy. Check the protocol under Opera's advanced settings; I had to change from the default "socket" to "HTTP" to make Opera mini work with my proxy.

  3. 5800 alternative web browsers

    Hi, just one more thing about Opera (either mini or mobile) page redering will vary depending on your settings, so try adjusting them, full screen and mobile view off work best for me, and picture quality set to medium. Also as Opera doesn't have flash support,
    it won't play video. Skyfire supports flash, but I find it slow and 'blocky'. Oh, and you can set Opera mobile as default browser :smileyhappy:

    Good Luck

    PS, it's not a browser, but try Snaptu as well, great little FREE app and very useful, has some good links !
