As for most people I am constantly using my web browser for a multitude of tasks. I split my time currently between the BB browser and Opera mini. I'm wondering if there are any plans in the works for a new browser? I'm sure there are plently of features that need to be addressed, but is the idea of a new browser in the near future even plausible??

Thanks.

I certainly agree that a firefox browser would be nice, but in my opinion it seems like firefox is a little slow to update their material. I don't know if this is a common trait of theirs?

This maybe going OT but Firefox actually has daily builds - in case someone wants to be on the bleeding edge Only their major releases are around 6-12 months apart.

IMO much better than IE that took close to 5 years between version 6 and 7.

The biggest issue with mobile browsers is that of device capabilities. It varies so much across different devices that it is extremely difficult to write cross device browsers with advanced features. So we finally end up having browsers that supports only the common minimum features.
