Ok, opinions are like ... well, you know. But with all the nagativity I am reading, I have to say I like the way the blackberry does things. And I like the browser -- 90% of the time it is all I need when I'm mobile, and the other 10% of the time I get by. When I'm on-the-move-mobile, I like the simple mobile versions of the full-version websites I use on the PC or netbook. Maybe it's me, but I'm not a Ludite. And I always say the perfect device is the one that's perfect for you.

Well stated. I have tried Opera Mini, and although it worked fine, I didn't see it as a huge advantage over the native browser.

I also have used other browsers and always go back to the BlackBerry browser, the only thing I would change is on the 4.6 browser I would add the option to use the cursor or not like the curves had. Other than that I haven't found one better for the BlackBerry.

Yea, I do have to back you guys up here. The BlackBerry Browser really does suit me needs.

The only time I use Opera Mini is when I want to download an extra large file on my BlackBerry.

Maybe it's the browser in 5.0 I don't know but if I remember back to my 8830/4.2.2 days the browser has improved drastically and I feel it's really is usable.
8830 -> 8330 -> 9550 -> 9650
Just think about how far BlackBerries have come from then till now... And what else is coming.
