    Anyone try it, or am I late to the boat on this one?

    If you have a Treo 700w, you can have full Opera 8.5 for Windows Mobile, without needing to run a cumbersome Java virtual machine.

    Opera has crashed a lot on me recently-although it may have something to do with this amazing batterypack pro (I think thats the name) thing I installed.

    I LOVE the way it renders, but I wish it didnt take up as much resources.

    I REALLY didn't like it. It took a lot longer to render pages than PIE and the Java wasn't worth it. Plus the annoying "trial" window that popped up everytime you started it was the kicker...I removed it after 3 days

    I agree with you. Opera mini is terrible. I had it on my 650 and I am not sure if they fixed anything but the button tabs were all screwed up and offered little utility or advantage.

    What are the advantages that you (whoever likes opera) see in it?

    Big difference. One is a small browser running under a java virtual machine, meant for dumb mobile phones. It uses a proxy server, and probably can not do javascript etc.

    Full opera 8.5 has very good javascript support, multiple windows, bookmarks etc. and accesses the internet directly, without taking a trip to Finland first.

    Can anyone confirm that? I couldn't even get Opera to run on my 700w.

    On my WM2003SE device it only uses about 4MB to load. Make sure you have at least that much free before you start.

    The full Opera 8.5 for WM PPC defiitely runs on the 700w...I have it running on mine. I like Netfront much better than this beta, although Opera is more WM 5.0 friendly (one-handed).

    Agreed. Netfront 3.3 kicks posterior. I wish it would come out of beta so I could just buy it and have all 5 tabs, instead of the two I am limited to.

    Do you have a link to find the Netfront 3.3 software? Or are you referring to the IE that comes on the phone?

    And, is Netfront better than IE?

    Thanks,

    Eric

    Much much better, with a lot better javascript support, and better reflowing. There is also a java plug-in. Its however a lot larger and uses a lot more resources. It also supports multiple tabs.

    Thanks,

    I appreciate it. So to install, it looks like you have to launch on a PC that has the synch software? I was just testing it here at work and got some error when running the program like it was missing a file.
