I prefer using the BB browser, because I download a lot of OTA stuff.

isnt there only really 2 or 3 browsers? I have on mine - BB and Opera. It has a MediaNet Browser but is that really a browser or like a bookmark?

Opera Mini beta 4 for everything except
- OTA downloads (BB browser)
- google reader (OM3) which OMb4 doesn't render at all.

mini opera, especially for rss 2.0 feeds. It's much faster than bb browser and it feels like a real browser unlike the bb one.
