    maybe, but opera seem to be incredibly slow with Opera Mobile
    I got my phone about a year ago and there was talk of a new Opera Mobile beta with the zooming **** in it then, that beta only landed a couple months ago
    Mozilla only started working on Mobile Firefox fairly recently
    If they keep up their respective development pace Mobile FF could easily overtake Opera Mobile pretty quickly

    I just got a new Nokia N96 and one of the first things I installed on it was Opera Mini(along with VNC+, IRC Client, Symtorrent, iPlayer and Nimbuzz), but to be honest i would really love to use a firefox mobile version instead.
    I was reading that only a linux and windows version would be made, but the market for symbian is quite big and they would be stupid to let opera take all the symbian market. I do hope that an S60 version comes out.

    Opera isn't that bad on wm6. At least it's better than IE mobile.

    To be fair thats not hard

    It's arguable that notepad is better at displaying html than IE Mobile ;)
