    Are you sure that its Opera Mini that is unstable, or the JVMs available for Palm ?

    Opera Mini works great (and is stable) on many other phone platforms (including WM), and its the same code (literally).

    "always go through a proxy" is considered to be a "pro" under many/most environments for which OM is designed (i.e. consumer-grade handsets with small screens, memory capacity, CPU, etc.). OM is very speedy on those platforms compared with native, non-proxied browsers, precisely because it *is* proxied.

    I think what y'all mean is that OM may not be the best fit for the Treo platform since it has different underlying design goals...

    And unfortunately there is no Opera Mobile for Palm... that is a good native browser, much better than PIE for WM...

    well, for me, proxy is indeed not bad, but I remember sometime opera mini's server crashed, it was a mess.

    OM 3.1 is pretty stable, indeed, but 4.0 beta is not. Even with stable 3.1, it locked up my centro several times last week.

    I actually find another pro of opera mini, it saves bandwidth, OM always re-package the webpage before sending to you, so you spend less data..
