Default operamin AvantGo

Please Login to Remove!

Hi ,

I saw AvantGo in operamini bookmarks. Here is the link
http://www.operamini.com/avantgo/

Does this mean we don't need to install AvantGo in our blackberry and can use it through opera ?. Anybody used AvantGo in operamini ?

Regards

AvantGo is little more than a virus now. It sukks so bad I can't begin to describe it. Back in the day it was the only way to get news and info onto your Palm Pilot. Your computer would download all your AvantGo feeds from the web and then squirt them onto your Palm Pilot with a sync. RSS feeds, and the overall suckiness of AvantGo, pretty much killed it.

Most people became disenchanted with Avantgo due to sync problems. But AvantGo is great if you want full articles downloaded automatically like I do, so you can read them when out of coverage (like when I'm in the NYC subway). I had a problem with sync errors until I learned that it was due to a memory leak issue with AvantGo. I then learned that the leak problem (for AvantGo and other apps) could be remedied by just disconnecting the battery for a couple minutes periodically (e.g., daily) to free up the memory. Just have to make sure the memory doesn't get too low. If I do the battery on a daily basis (because I have AvantGo set to automatically sync each morning), then AvantGo pretty much stays free of sync problems. I was frustrated with AvantGo for a while until I figured this out. Now I consider it a great app again, even though it is a little annoying having to remember to disconnect the battery every day.
