    Thoughts on OPERA MINI 3.0

    Advertisement



    First off I have publicly denounced Opera Mini 2.0 as a viable replacement for the standard browser. Why? because for me Opera Mini did NOT work 50% of the time I tried to use it. Therefore I removed the app.

    On to Opera Mini 3.0-

    Just to be clear, I like the idea of Opera Mini. I also like the format and ease of use. What I do not like is basically the unreliability of the application. I was hoping that 3.0 might be different and for TWO WHOLE DAYS...it was. It was very nice, fast, clean, organized. Everything it promised to be it was. And then it stopped working. I couldn't look up anything, Could not get at Wikipedia or Google, couldn't look up any of my bookmarked pages. Ran a "Test connection", which it failed. I reinstalled a fresh copy and it worked fine for 4 hours, then it crashed again.

    So Opera Mini still sucks (at least in my opinion).

    Has anyone else had similar issues of connectivity, or other problems with Opera Mini 2.0/3.0 ?

    Whats your take?

    I did the BETA, tried it, hated it, deleted it...

    Seemed too unstable...

    And sometimes I would go to click "Next" or "Log In" and it would just redirect me to the Opera Mini homepage.

    WHERE ARE YOU FIREFOX MOBILE?!?!?!?!

    For windows based devices.

    Unless I am blind and didn't see the java link, which is always possible.
