what is wrong with the integrated browser on the device? Are there sites you are unable to view or do you not like the setup of it?

i have an 8130 and love the browser on it. you can also try opera mini by just downloading the high memory version and loading it on the device through DM

try MS Pocket IE emulation. I have it set to that and have no issues. Keep in mind much of the page displayed on the PC is in Flash, which the BB cannot play.
