    I installed Opera and it seems very nice....

    Next one should be Opera Mobile with Flash support?

    :)

    Compared to stock:
    Pros:
    - much faster on slow connection
    - better copypaste
    - upload files (no js sites)

    Cons:
    - javascript engine
    - zoom has only one level

    My 3 cents...

    I keep 3G turned off to preserve battery and it makes the native browser
    sluggish. Opera Mini however, flies on 2G. It's excellent. The only donwside
    I've found is that scrolling doesn't seem to be as responsive as on the native
    browser.

    Considering its a beta, that 4 secs difference is quite good.

    It's Smart Keyboard Pro with iPhone skin. The thing is - it is MUCH faster than HTC keyboard form Hero, no lags at all.

    This is a great browser with a couple issues as noted in this thread.

    1. Only one zoom level.
    2. Cannot allow pop-ups.

    I noticed that when I went to ipchicken.com within the browser it displays an Opera Mini IP other than my own IP so I guess all traffic is being proxied through Opera servers perhaps for speed sakes. Kinda weird.

    It's not "kinda wierd" - it's the whole point of Opera Mini!

    Well yah kinda weird. If my browser traffic is running through a proxy then IP location is farked meaning I could probably watch videos that would not normally be available to me because of my geographic location among other things.

    You cannot watch videos in Opera Mini. Opera Software does not pump flash content through its proxies: e.g. when using Opera Turbo in desktop Opera - videos are streamed directly from Youtube.

    How do you watch videos in Opera Mini? Whenever I try to open a Youtube video in Opera Mini I get a page saying "The address type is unknown or unsupported".

    I think you can't. Mini uses compression on Opera server side...

    That's what I was saying.

    Sorry, I thought atbeyi said "you can", but I missed the "If" in the beginning.

    Yes, you are right the important part is that "if" informale. as i know none of the browsers (default one, dolphin, opera mini, those secret browsers) has the ability to show videos (well honestly i haven't checked html5 video sites).

    sites embed videos with flash/silverlight (usually), mov, wma, asf, mpg, those ones can't be played with our browsers (the silverlight ones can't be played with any linux distro as i know) there maybe a chance to watch htlm5 embedded videos (guess which are ogg videos) but i am not sure. i will test it.
