optimizing iris browser for TP

I use this for the iphone.facebook.com website and love it, it also works great for googles book website. I tweaked my opera browser and now its WAY faster and was wondering if anyone knew how to do the same for Iris. I also want to change the icon art to the facebook icon as this is my primary function and feel the iphone.facebook.com website functions just like an app anyways.

Last, what is your guys thoughts on iris browser (speed, stability, etc.)

Re: optimizing iris browser for TP

thanks for the link. I didn't know there was an iphone optimized version of facebook. I've been using m.facebook.com and it sucks so bad I resort to using my iPhone 3G. Wow. Thanks for the link posted.

Re: optimizing iris browser for TP

Iris has a lot of potential but really needs a lot of optimization to reach that potential...

Could you imagine the Touch Pro HD with a blazing fast fully-completed Iris browser? *drool*

Re: optimizing iris browser for TP

I LOVE Iris browser... I'm honestly surprised this is one of the few threads about it (there were a few back when it was referred to as Torch Browser, before the current version).

Yes, I use it primarily for Facebook as well. A little trick that might be useful since the iPhone has slightly different screen dimensions: set the zoom view to match page width. Then the page formatting fits better.

It never occured to me to change the icon to Facebook- that's actually not a bad idea. You can totally change icons by finding an appropriate icon contained in a .dll, and referencing it by the link (lnk) in your programs dir.
More on this:

As far as icons go, yes you can absolutely change the icon:

Re: optimizing iris browser for TP

The problem with Iris is that people think its "slow" because it does a full HTML render BEFORE it starts showing you the page while Opera Mobile renders on the fly... but speedwise, its really about on par with Opera Mobile from page load start to page load finish... you just can't interact with it as quickly.
