    Really nice little browser. Light and fast and also displays pages really well.

    Now I just have to wait to get a better phone as my omnia is so laggy and needs to be hit with the power of a baseball bat to respond to my finger presses gggrrr

    Was this article typed on a mobile device or is the editor on strike? An unusually high number of errors for such a small item, and these are just the things I noticed immediately , there could be more! :)

    I've tried it, and it's very nice, but the only thing I've not figured out is how to 'un-zoom' a page... double-tapping on a page used to toggle between zoomed and un-zoomed (iirc), but now it doesn't.

    I've also noticed the menu / icon bar popup sometimes doesn't expand fully, so I need to scroll between the top and bottom lines, which sometimes leads to me accidentally selecting the wrong option.

    I'll hold my hands up to most of those errors - a sad byproduct of typing at 0500 this morning - but "mobile 'phones" is entirely correct.

    Not bad. Wouldn't pay for the final version though when something like skyfire is free.

    Opera Mini is free. It's Opera Mobile that you have to pay for.
