Finally, a browser that's faster (and better) than Opera Mini

Hey all,

I have always been a fan of Opera Mini on my Sprint Mogul with WM 6.1. I found it easier to use, and much faster than SkyFire ever was (or any other browser, for that matter). As far as I was concerned - nothing could beat it.

Until NOW, that is. I just downloaded NetFront 3.5 (concept version) trial HERE.

I have been playing with it (the browser) for a few minutes, and I can already say that it's ridiculously fast! Much faster than Opera Mini - it seems almost instant - no joke. I have yet to scroll onto a piece of a page that was still rendering...

Give it a shot...



Later,

Matt!

Re: Finally, a browser that's faster (and better) than Opera Mini

well for mee I still think that Skyfre is better.. IDK if you only are looking at the speed but i tried NetFront and its ok but it doesnt show videos basically doesnthave the video plugins as Skyfire does... like for example if you use Skyfire and go to Youtube you will be able to look at the page and also play videos on your phone with NetFront will do the same but will show the error about your Flashplayer and all of that.. I think it is a good browser but not for me I still think Skyfire is better tho
