what web browser are you using?

ok so i bought a treo pro. im coming from a touch pro. now im having a problem finding a good browser that i like. all the ones that i have tried have there advantages and disadvantges.
im mostly using iris browser
my problem with it is that i have to zoom in to read the font. yes i can double tap but it becomes to big. i do like the smooth scrolling and the webkit engine plus basic flash sites play.
i also use netfront 3.5
my problem is that it takes to long to render big sites and often crashes when going to heavy scripted and image sites (no not porn) but i do like that the virtual canvus feature and the ablity to choos how you want to render it. netfront also has the smooth scrolling
ie6
another browser that works good for certain sites and has the smooth scrolling feature but its super slow. sites take forever to load and sometimes stall out in the middle of rendering it. yes there is that hack that takes itr back to PIE but you lose the smooth scrolling feature. with out doing the hacks or add ons it sucks at scrolling.
offical opera mobile.
loaded it once but it has that stupid screen scramble when you first load it. havent tried any of the tweaked ones let . but didnt like the whole scrren fuzzing out.



has anyone else tried any other web browser that have worked out decent on the pro

Re: what web browser are you using?

I use skyfire for normal browsing, and IE6 for mobi sites(banking, twitter). I like skyfire the most

Yes it does. But the browser still doesn't compare to the capabilities of skyfire or opera. W/ IE6 you still need to do way to much scrolling around to see what you want.

Re: what web browser are you using?

I use PIE for mobile browsing and Skyfire for sites I need to see in native format.

What exactly am i missing then because if i go to a page with any sort of flash i get an error message something along the lines of "this device does not support flash"

Checked options and properties with no mention of flash and when i go to the flash website it says my device is not supported.

Please explain.
