Thumbs down Sprint Treo Pro- which browser to use?

Currently running a wm 6.5 Rom upgrade on my Sprint Treo Pro.

I see Opera 5 has come out (no longer beta). Not sure how long since it's release, but I'm amazed at the speed and quirks that were ironed out since 5.1 beta.

However, I'm wondering if anyone out there knows of a browser that includes flash on it?

I realize Skyfire is an option, but I can't stand it's appearance settings (font size(s) specifically).


Any ideas?

Thanks!

actually skyfire wont be an option much longer as they are shutting servers down soon. I dont know what other options have true flash like that though. Opera Mini 5 is my daily browser though

UC mobile,Mobile Browser-The fastest free mobile browser

UC Browser. I used Opera Mobile until I found this gem. Skinnable and free. And ALOT faster.

Re: Sprint Treo Pro- which browser to use?

Which version of the UC Browser did you download? Palm is not shown as an option to download a phone specific version. The generic version is described as a "high memory version", presumably not for the TP

Thanks for the post on Uzard. I tried it for a few days, but wasn't all that impressed. I think I expected too much from my "little" Treo Pro and it's ability to load flash pages fast enough.

Do you use Uzard as your main browser? If so, I have to imagine that maybe it's just my phone perhaps?

Thanks again for the suggestions, guys. There are quite a few of you out there who do a great job informing the "cell ignorant" like myself on things we should and shouldn't be adding to our phones!

Re: Sprint Treo Pro- which browser to use?

I'm still an Opera mini fan for 95% of what I need to do. Previously used Skyfire for everything else (requiring flash) but I'll probably switch to Uzard. It's not pretty but it seems to work ok.
