    I can't seem to get it to download from any site. Even had Opera send me an SMS. Does it work or not? I need another browser and Mini worked great for me with my BB.

    You need a Java client.

    Just download and install this:

    http://www.1800pocketpc.com/shared_f...ni%201.2.2.cab

    That should be everything you need, but personally...Opera Mini is pretty lame and I have no idea why people like it.

    Opera Mobile is much better and Skyfire is probably the best.

    I just find the full browsers to be bulky and slow. I do like PIE but it doesn't handle every site I browse where as Mini does. Thanks for the link.

    I love it. It is so fast. There is never ever a scroll loading screen like in the full browsers. And it is super fast relative to full browsers.

    Also: 1.2.6 is the newest version of the pack, but it doesn't seem to work on the 800w. I am trying the 1.2.4 version, because there isn't much changed since then:

    Opera Mobile is slow as molasses and Skyfire does not render many pages properly in "smartfit" mode. I use Opera Mini because it is so fast and does a beautiful job of displaying the web pages that I read regularly.

    Yep, unless you need Flash, Opera Mobile is the way to go.

    SkyFire and Opera Mobile are so behind that even PIE and TCPMP work better for YouTube.

    The latest version of Skyfire works extremely well with YouTube. I've used PIE and TCPMP plenty...but I'd prefer Skyfire any day.


    That being said there's plenty not to like about it, just like you can find with any browser. Opera Mobile is very slick, but PIE and Skyfire fits 99% of my browsing needs.

    Remember that we are talking Opera Mini here guys. The last two posts have been about Mobile.

    I also have Opera Mobile but it does not fit my screen properly no matter how I adjust it. Mini settings allow Mobile View which will adjust to your device screen. No more scrolling right/left only up/down. I hate Zoom.

    I use Opera Mini, primarily because of its speed and how well it works with my Redfly. I love Skyfire for videos - it works great with Hulu, Comedy Central, YouTube and other video sites. It's not my main browser simply because it's a battery hog & a bit more clunky to navigate.

    Try this (via XDA)
    FileSend - OM16112008_Note.cab

    This CAB will install the following software and tweaks:

    1. Jbed Java-VM (Latest)
    2. Opera mini 4.2
    3. Signing Opera mini as trusted(So that annoying confirmation prompt to network
    connection and to Saving/uploading files is removed.
    4. Direct shortcut for opera mini in Start->Programs->Internet.
    Shortcut for Jbed under Start->Programs->Accessories
    5. Nice opera icon for the shortcut & to be used in the today launchers.

    if you installed from post #12 above, that installs Java and Opera Mini 4.2--you should have an icon in your Start/Programs for it now.

    The icon is tricky. Will try to look it up later.

    For Gmail though, just download the .jar file from the gmail site, run Java, go to install, tell it where the .jar file is and wholla...Java Gmail.

    I already have it working; I just don't like the aesthetics of that awful Jbed icon. Also, I have to grant permission to access Gmail each time.

    ah, my bad...

    some folks at xda released a version that does both Gmail and Opera--will try to find it and post back later.
