I think it's more a matter of preference. Opera works well on full pages, while I think the BB browser works very well on wap sites. I personally prefer wap sites due to the small screen. At least on Verizon the BB browser opens wap sites very quickly.

I prefer Opera Mini, and have relegated the default browser to the bottom of the menu list. I wish the windows would automatically open zoomed though.

I personally don't even use opera mini anymore. With the Bold the web browsing experience has been so well improved on the device that the opera mini browser is not needed anymore.

Opera seems much better, faster where the BB freezes at the loading point quite a lot. Hope it get's fixed soon. Currently using 167. Didn't have the problem on 147.
