Default BB Browser vs. Opera Mini

Please Login to Remove!

I have been trying out both browsers. It seems that when I use google images with BB browser, they are more clear than Opera Mini. However, on Opera Mini, the pages are formatted much better.

How do I change the formatting of BB Browser so all the text is not only on the left side?

What's your experience with BB Browser vs. Opera?

Thanks!

I've tried Opera Mini and it is VERY slow in my experience. I like the formatting better as well but can't stand how long it takes to load the pages. So I'm sticking with the BlackBerry browser for now.

Can't even get opera to work. It says it's looking for gprs connection and I have Tmo Edge so is that why it won't even launch?

You can go to the browser options and change the emulation. I have mine set to Microsoft IE. It fits how I want the web pages to look the best.
