I have used Opera Mini on all my phones, so it was one of the first things I did to my Prevail. But now I will have to check out this Dolphin browser, I have never heard of it before.

I got the app and checked it out for about 5-10mins. Dolphin mini is not to bad. I will use it some more and get use to it. It seemed at least as fast as Opera Mini and possibly even faster. Thanks!!

I was using Opera Mobile, but tried the stock browser again after the Gingerbread update. It actually works much better now and the rendering is better than OM as well!

Dolphin mini is faster but not as clear but you can't tell on the prevail

I used Opera on my BB, and really liked it. Still need to check out Dolphin. But I have to questions:

Can you then delete the native browser?

And does the internet shortcut button still work, or do you go online by using the Dolphin (or Opera) shortcut?

BTW, I do NOT miss my BB, I love this phone.
