    Best Web Browser for Wifi

    Advertisement



    Hey all! Just wondering if there are any other browsers to use on WIFI with the 8320 curve other than the original one? Can we not download a browser that appears more desktop/internet like???

    Thanks in advance!

    Opera mini is the way to go. Only down side is there is no way to make it the default browser.

    also, you can't download OTA with opera mini. The only downside in my opinion.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ not only that it doesn't use the wifi as default connection and I can't change the settigns to only use wifi. BBBrowser is good enough for me, just make sure you set the emulation mode to better reflect what you will be accessing (eg.pocketIE emulation works best for the msn sites, not the regular IE emulation especially when going hotmail)

    I am able to download OTA with my Opera Mini no problem. What settings are you using? The only thing that happens with me is that it closes Opera Mini when OTAing.

    also, you cannot use opera mini on wifi either. it needs data. i tried and it kept asking for a data connection.

    You can download with Opera 4 (or whatever the Beta one is).
    It closes Opera and opens the download in BB Browser, so TECHNICALLY you aren't downloading in Opera, but it has the same effect.

    To optimally use WiFi, what settings do you need to have set or changed?

    I have it set to Wi-Fi Browser as my default browser in browser settings.. is there anything else?

    Same here, my WiFi works fine with Opera Mini.
    Only thing that bothers me about the program is that I liked the shortcut keys the default browser had (i.e. refresh, etc.)

    I have a question. I'm with tmobile. And I use my wifi. Without an internet data plan just fine. And I download videos from bluapple.mobi into my bb a couple of times. I was wondering if I'm gettin charged for downloading on wifi? Or is it free? Am I being charge per kb download?
