    I'll have to be sent into the 65th dimension to even consider using Opera. UGH.

    It causes too many freezes. I hope the new version makes it more stable.

    I can load pages with Opera lighting speed faster than with Blazer. So anything Opera is welcome.

    I prefer Opera over Blazer as well.

    Anyway to register it as the default browser?

    DOesn't the Foleo have Opera browser on it? I think is should not be too long before a version of that is ported to the Treo no?

    I've tried Opera on a PC. Ugh. I tried Opera on the Treo. Double-ugh. Java, ugh.. Operas look, feel, and general clumsiness, ugh.

    Thank god Google Maps for Palm came out, I had KMaps installed, figured I'd try Opera since I already had the Java pork installed. Deleted it pretty fast.

    I'm writing this right now from Opera. I can't imaging browsing smoothly with Blazer the way I do with Opera. The only problem I see is the Java engine. But if they can make it a stand alone app that would be awesome.

    Before I discovered Opera, web browsing on my 700p was not even an option. Blazer is just that bad.

    Now the combination of Opera Mini and Font Smoother make surfing a pleasure.

    Opera Mini is the only app that locks up my Treo and I do usually end up reseting a couple of times a day but considering how valuable it is, it is a very small price to pay.

    I'm assuming that the new version will require Java as well. I think that writing it in Java is what makes it so widely compatable with phones.

    I agree about Java...that alone makes me skip out on this app. Even though I have ton of memory I just don't want to use Java. Google Maps used to require it but now it is native, hopefully Opera can do the same.

    hope it'll support typing underscores _

    I just tried out OperaMini on a 700p and 750 yesterday. I am impressed. With the right fonts, it looks great on both and is faster than anything else. But it is honestly MUCH faster and more stable on the 750.
