    Just got off WinMo too (though Opera Mini 5 rivals WebOS's browser) and what you said was QFT!

    Are you referring to the situation that happens when there's more content to a page but the browser stops short and pretends like there's nothing more left?

    In that case, I found out pinching (that is, zooming out), makes the whole page display again. I encounter this at least twice a day. The browser retains the dimensions (lengthwise) of the previous page even if the current page is longer.

    I really like the browser.it is extremely fast. I would like to see some additional functionality witj it though. The addition of full flash suppirt is going to be really nice, I have no complaints.

I'm sick of the pages reloading when your away, the horrible "checkerboard", I'm starting to use my Zune hd to browse.. Its a little slower but saves me the trouble.. Plus its very easy to type in browser you don't have to move the screen as you type...
    They have a patch for that whole reloading issue. And WOW...you find it easier to browse on the Zune HD? I hate using the internet on that thing. The format kills me. GREAT music player though.
    Tomorrow I'll be me again...

    I can mirror these same frustrations. I agree with others that it seems worse since 1.4. Interestingly I find it mostly effects the mobile version of this forum.

    I'd call Firefox or Opera about this issue.

    Yeah, I've had the same problem on drop-down menus. It'll basically lock up the browser card and bog down the phone until I throw the card away.

    1.4 definitely didn't help the browser. I see the checkerboard a lot but the thing that bugs me is the "refreshing" the page once it's finished loading it. Used to be I could click a link before the page was done loading, but doing that now always leads me to clicking the wrong link because the stupid browser refreshed and my tap is now on some other area of the page.

    I love the browser as long as I only have one open. If I get impatient and start opening 3 or 4 browser cards all going to different sites then they will all start freaking out and locking up.
