Best Browser for Forum Posting/Viewing??

I really like Opera Mini 5 for viewing forums, but it can be a pain when trying to make posts in forums. Opera 10 takes too long to render the text (I hate the text being blurry when you open up threads). Is there another option I should try? What do you guys use?

The only other mobile browser I've used would be Skyfire but I don't even think they're still developing for WinMo. They've probably moved onto Win Phone 7.

Yeah... Skyfire was good. I never had much of a problem with Opera 7 and the m. ppcgeeks site. Didn't use it much... But it was ok while on the road.

Re: Best Browser for Forum Posting/Viewing??

Opera Mini 5 works better for posting on forums when the forum skin/mode is set to mobile. Otherwise you get the dreaded empty PM or post, aka "message too short" error.

It's hands down the best viewer IMO.

Another option, if you have WiFi, would be to use Remote Desktop and commandeer your PC/laptop to post for you. IE8 does just well

I agree, it's great for viewing. My problems are either:

a) When you type a reply and click out of the box, it starts "loading" something, so you have to quickly hit the reply button.

b) Clicking a link, and it ends up loading the same page you were on.
