Default Downloading from a PC

Please Login to Remove!

In my probably quixotic effort to install a brower which can handle 128 bit encryption and is entirely safe (as, say, IE or Firefox) for accessing secure web sites, I have tried to install Opera.

HOWEVER, Opera, while is works OK, for some reason, via WAP I can only install the basic version. While this version can access secure web sites, in fact, the connection is not secure (as per Opera's FAQ). The Advanced Version is secure (they claim). HOWEVER, on their site, when accessing via WAP, their site determines which version to provide. If they lack information about the mobile unit, they default to Basic. I have provided with information on the 8703d Blackberry, but have no idea when they will make a change (assuming the advanced version will in fact work).

So, an alternative: Download to the PC and then install via the Desktop manager. HOWEVER, their downloaded files are a jar file and a jad file, which are not suitable for the Blackberry installation (right)?

Any sugestions? I would really like to access my bank from the blackberrry.
