    Opera is more HTML friendly...it will render some pages better than the bb browser.

    Basically just have both...I use Opera to navigate MySpace, Facebook and sites like that. The ones that aren't so mobile friendly.

    But you will also need the BB browser to download and install OTA apps.

    Hope that helps.

    um... NOTHING??? It costs nothing, and well worth it!



    All kidding aside, there's no charge for Opera Mini... download it, and check it out.

    I use Opera the majority of the time. Sometimes, such as for OTA downloads, I'll launch bbBrowser, but for almost everything else, it's Opera!

    Great program.

    Re: whats better opera or BB browser

    I like everyone else havce both. Use opera for sites that don't like the BB browser. But my main Browser is the built in one. My one complaint about opera is that it opens up a new window whenever you have to enter a text field~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Do you have BlackBerry internet? Opera does not work with the cheap T-mo net. Did you try a soft reset? No extra spaces in wap.voicestream.com?

    I only use the built in browser when I want to copy something from the net. I think OM is great. I cannot wait until OM4 goes alpha.

    i use opera for certain sites. bb browser does not work for sites that are low-security, i actually just had an issue with this tonight. if it won't load on bb i go to opera and it will load. so get both and use which ever you seem to like better.

    I have NEVER gotten any opera product to work. And in 20+ years on a PC, opera has always sucked! (adware)

    Sorry ev1, you cannot make Opera the browser (email?). Anyway, only the BB browser can be the default browser.
