Milestone Browser wont wrap text

    The Android 2.0 web browser included with the Milestone (UK version) does not wrap text on web pages. This forces me to zig-zag right and left to read text on a page, rendering the web browser near unusable. I've tried chaning the text size or default zoom levels but nothing works: it's like viewing an image version of the webpage.

    Is this bug particular to the Milestone?

    I've had the same problem. It varies from site to site, but the browser seems to try and honour the styling the site wants to use, regardless of how much sense that makes on a 400 pixel wide screen. It would be nice to have a 'fit to screen' option so you can toggle between an optimised view and the 'proper' formatting.

    Try the Dolphin browser. Seems to do a pretty good job of wrapping text.

    Thanks diazamet, I installed Dolphin and set it as default browser. It's OK, it certainly wraps text better. I've also noticed some emails don't wrap in the Google Mail app too.

    hopefully Opera 10 will be available some day as an APK...
    Opera 9.7 on windows mobile is just THAT superior to the Android (or any mobile) browser :(
