Best Browser for Curve 8320

Hi guys, I'm running system software 4.2.2 on my Berry.  Installed Opera Mini 4.1 and it worked.  Problem is, it's no faster or maybe even slower than the Berrys Browser.  I was wondering 2 things.  If I upgraded to 4.5 would that make browsing faster or is there a faster browser out there. Please let me know.

Re: Best Browser for Curve 8320

those are your only two choices just now, the normal bb browser and Opera Mini.


Upgrading could make your BB feel more snappy.

I would recommand you to use device's Internet Browser. BlackBerry browser works 2/3 times faster then convensional browser.

Re: Best Browser for Curve 8320

both the browser from Blackberry and the browser from Opera do compression. On both cases, it goes through their own web proxies.
Yu can double the speed of your browsing by deactivating javascript. It may seem crazy saying that loud in the XXth century, but think again : how many websites really require Javascript ?
if you have two blackberry browsers on your device (the "Blackberry Brower" and the "Internet Browser" for instance), then you can configure only one to enable javascript. and bookmark that website that requires javascript, and in the bookmark, choose that browser.
