Default web browers options for verizon

Please Login to Remove!

Can someone recommend a good web browser for the 8703e w/Verizon. Opera mini does not support this according to their website, are there any other good browsers. The stock browser is sloppy and impossible to use effectively.

Also, I'm looking for a desktop software to run on windows xp that will sync with the blackberry (not outlook). I"m looking for a simple piece of software that has a calendar, address book, etc that i can enter items into and that will put it onto the blackberry. Hope that made sense. I"m new to this whole thing. I just got the blackberry two days ago. On top of that, it's my cell phone thing ever.

Not to many options here; I use the BB browser. I do not use my provider's browser or the BES browser.

Do you have Verizon or another carrier?

I went to download it info said that verizon does not support it, so i didn't even try as I didn't want to mess anything up.

Thanks. I'll give it a shot and see.

On the Opera site, it states:

Note to North-American users
Opera Mini is available to all Sprint and Cingular customers. Availability for T-Mobile customers is dependent on the subscription plan. BREW-enabled phones, including Verizon, are currently not supported.
