    Pearl Web Browser --- useless?

    Advertisement



    Just curious as to what ppl use their web browser for. I've found it pretty useless because it can't display a lot of the pages.... does anyone know of a good yellow page website that the browser can access?

    I say use Opera Mini, extremely well done browser. It can also access just about every site.

    http://www.operamini.com/download/

    There's also an OTA link on that site if you dont want to use your desktop manager.

    I've been usin it for a while and never had any problems with it. I find it very useful and in some cases more useful than opera mini even thou its a great browser as well.

    What setting do you have the browser emulation on. I've found that my pearl BB browser works best setting it to Netscape emulation. And I agree with the other response ... I sometimes have opted for the BB browser to Opera mini browser.

    Useless?

    I find that a little harsh. Considering the size of the screen AND how small the 8100 is overall, it's pretty amazing what you can pull up on the BB browser. It takes a bit of time to relearn how to navigate on those tiny web pages and links, but overall I think it's pretty dang good.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I mostly use my bb browser for espn, pinstack of course and managing my fantasy baseball teams on yahoo, pretty much anything else i'll do on opera mini, viewing espn is way better on the bb browser than on opera mini, just my opinion

    i think bb browser is the only default browser and there is no way you can change it.

    i love operamini because i refresh nba scores on yahoo a lot.

    Opera Mini is the way to go,You have access to more.There isnt a browser out there that will allow you to play videos or streaming video,anything like that.

    I find the BB browser works depending on the website...pretty useless on MySpace.

    I did have the Opera browser and prefered that, but once I did the Italy download my opera stopped working and I haven't been able to get it working since. Now my pc is down, so I can't remove the Italy download so I guess I'm stuck right now dealing with just the BB browser.

    The overall feel of Opera is better,Myspace on Opera allows you to send messages,View Bulletins,Do everything you would be able to do from a desktop computer.As far as installing it.You may need to change your Access point,Depending on who your carrier is.
