I was wondering how many people have tried opera mini and whether it is functional enough as a real browser ...
However, I never really liked Opera in the first place, the PC version as well as the Z version...thus I wanted to know what other people who use opera think about opera mini.
Wow! Now if Opera-Mini solved the problems I have with Opera 7.30, I might consider switching.
But if you don't like Opera, then you don't like Opera, and why even bother? BTW, is there only one version?
My basic problems with Opera 7.30 are 1) that it's slow because it loads an entire page before you get to see it, 2) that if it crashes, you lose any new bookmarks, cookies, settings, or saved webpages and have to go get them again, and 3) most serious of all, it attempts to hijack ttyS0 on my ROM 2.38, it doesn't recognize my already present internet connection and keeps trying to start another one :-( I don't know what it would do on other ROMs.
But I like the displays...I can toggle between full screen (scroll rt to lt) and text mode (vertical scrolling), and turn images on or off. I also like the presence of bookmark folders and the option to save notes with each bookmark.
What do you most like or dislike about Opera Mini? Is there anything good about it? What features are missing that you want to have?
