I am sick of these apple/apple related questions. Take the Blackberry for what it is. Opera Mini is exactly the same. The Blackberry and iPhone are both unique with different features and different strengths. I think that's been addressed.

I have to say that I like Safari's interface much better than Opera Mini but OM hasn't been specifically designed with the BB UI in mind.

I was not talking about the iphone! I was asking about safari and you can get it for your windows system nor was it a comparison to the iphone! Due to the fact that I dont have a BB internet plan and that renders om unusable on my curve I have had om on my pearl and really did not see how it was like looking at my desktop like safari is. I think that if safari was avail for the blackberry people was use it!

Just the fact that it looks just like you were browsing on you home computer! Could just be that BB just does not have the interface to do it?

well it does, and doesnt. the normal BB browser also has the desktop view, which gives you a mouse. in OM turn off the "mobile view" if it is on, and it will give you a better look at the screen.

It's a mobile browser; it should look like one! It's not going to be like a desktop.
