I have been reading what software most people carry on their blackberry and noticed that one that was repetitive was Opera Mini. I am trying to figure out why that program is such a big deal when you get the same feature by using your web browser or Berry 411. Can anyone really explain what I am missing here? I saw the full list of great software, and I added a few, but the one that I REALLY wish there was is an expense tracker that would let me customize the fields to fit my exact corporate expense report, so that when I entered it in, I could then convert it to excel and send it that way. Anyone know if anything like this exists? Thanks for the help.
Night and freakin' day, man. Pages generally render with a more true representation of their intended look. Pages are compressed in a way that better limits the data you d/l. Up here on Rogers bandwidth = $$ (don't get me started on 25meg cap!)
Don't get me wrong, mini is far from perfect. Having said that, I boot that browser more than any other
Neither browser is perfect. In some cases, the BB Browser is faster in rendering sites, in others, Opera Mini is faster. I do like that Opera does render sites closer to their native appearance than others, but if you have a slow connection, ii.e. GPRS, it can take forever for those sites to fully appear, and Opera won't let you navigate the page until it is fully rendered. I do wish that Opera had a way to flush the cache, but there are times when Opera is better than the BB Browser, and you can't beat the price.
