    Anyone else experience freeze ups with Opera mini 2.0 on the Treo 700p? How do I fix this? Any other browsers out there that are better?

    i haven't had a freeze with opera on the 700 yet. Good practices: disable smooth scrolling and animation effects in Opera's preferences and set the memory in the java preferences for opera mini to 4MB/8kb stack (and enable double buffering for it while you're at it). The best way to avoid a freeze is a little patience, i've found. When you click a link, you might not see the progress bar flash instantly. If you try to hit the link again, your freezing chances increase. Best is to use the five way to navigate thru the links and center button to execute them.

    As for a better browser, Xiino is still out there, but as to whether that's any better now is debatable. Give webpro a spin, perhaps..though that's a lot like blazer. Interested in what others have to say.

    I haven't had any problems with Opera on my 700p. I'd follow Gfunkster's recommendations.

    Thanks g-funkster. That seems to have done the trick.

    You should use UDMH and set the memory and cache all the way up. Click high res and don't click double buffering.
    Speeds it up.

    Does anyone want to test web pro 3.5 on 700p? It is the best browser, best rendering and quite fast. It doesnt work on the 650, but it worked on the 600.
    I have it. PM your email and i'll send it over.

    I just got my 700 tonight, and in testing Opera, WebViewer (my previous favorite on my Treo 600 GSM), and the new blazer, Opera seemed to be the slowest, WebViewer seemed to be hair faster than the new blazer, but then slower on others than blazer. All were VERY fast though to the point of being ridiculous. I'll keep them all on for a week or so for more testing, but the way it looks thus far, there is no need for another browser now that blazer has been upgraded.

    Side note - Webviewer, Opera, and any other J2ME programs seem to be tough to exit from on the 700, maybe another reason to just stick with blazer.

    You are absolutely right! Webpro 3.5 is the best browser around. I loved it on my Treo 600 and missed it when I got my Treo 650.

    I now have the Treo 700p and have already found that Blazer 4.5 has weakness with webpages with multiple image or photos. I have not had a chance to test Webpro 3.5, but Webpro v 3.0.1a works on my 700p perfectly and shows all images.
