Ok, now since Vodafone is only charging me a dollar a day I'm using my Jasjam online all the time. I've read a lot of postings on here about Opera and mini Opera and which is best. I've found that without a fast 3G connection Opera mobile 9.5 beta jumps around a lot and isn't as fast loading as Mini. It also seems to have memory issues and asks me to close tabs to free up memory. There are some really good features in 9.5 that I wish would find there way into mini like filling in forms on the page, so maybe I'll try a later version in the future. Question is what other browsers are people using out there and why and are there other little known alternatives that I could try?

For me definitely skyfire, have to sign up to a private beta, and it has been a while and no news of it coming here in a hurry! I been using a mate's credentials and seems to block Vodafone apn, and can only use wifi access at home through Telstra Clear cable.

Don't have any experience with Skyfire (I hear good things though), but Opera 9.5 is awesome. Comes standard with the Touch Pro and is easily the best mobile browser I've used.
