Default Opera Mini is missing some serious functionality

What's up with the lack of functionality with the Opera Mini for the BlackBerry? Do RIM not have a very open API?

What's up with having to click "select" in a text field, to be taken to a fullscreen textarea view to input data? And the inability to save images directly from the browser?

You have to use the clickwheel 2 to 3 times more in Opera Mini than with the native browser. It's a major drawback.

Opera Mini is a great browser that will save you on your data costs, so I hope they'll be able to produce a more integral browser in the near future.

I noticed the same thing... Also, I can't set my own home page... but it comes in handy. Omni loads pages the BB browser wont.

I tried the previous version of mini then I tried the new version in hopes that the problems you speak of would have been corrected. I deleted it after a half a day of use. The stock BB browser is mucho, mucho better!
