Just do a google search for opera mini. It works on the Storm.. sort of. You have to double click everything, but man does it run really, really fast.

EDIT: I figured it out. Since it wasn't made for the Storm, it waits for a "highlight", not a click. So you don't have to click on anything.

To the OP, it can never be the main browser. There is still a need for the native browser for certain items.

Why can't it be the main browser? You can set it to be in the settings

opera mini works great on my storm, when in the opera program u have to just tap the screen (ie. links, pictures, checking/unchecking but when the phones OS comes in u actually have to "click" (ie. keyboard, permission access) i actually prefer opera mini loading times in between pages is significantly shorter and downloading files is always a plus. im using both 4.1 and 4.2 beta. depending on what i wanna do keep in mind having 3 different browsers reminds me of using tabs

I am going to mini.opera.com and opening that page and then I am clicking on Download and I get a page that says to select phone and there is not a choice for the storm. Am I doing something wrong?
