And I think Opera Mobile is the only browser that you can use the little search button on XDA.
On other browsers the search box disappear when you try to enter text.. In Opera the search box works like on the computer.

Some sunspider results, lower is better

Rom: Original ICS 4.0.3
Browser: Opera Mobile 12
Tweak: OC 1.6GHz
Result: 1352.3ms +/- 0.7%

Rom: Original ICS 4.0.3
Browser: Chrome Beta. Version 0.16.4215.215
Tweak: OC 1.6GHz
Result: 1558.8ms +/- 1.9%

Rom: Original ICS 4.0.3
Browser: Chrome Beta.
Result: 1828.3ms +/- 1.8%
yeah, opera mobile always yells the fastest sunspider results. you see the screen flashing so fast on opera. on any other browser the test seems to take its time. plus I've gotten even faster time than you showed on opera before.

I had many freezes with the stock browser, I installed opera mobile and freezes no longer occur, this browser is very fast and fluid, is my favorite.

opera mobile needs the hardware acceleration and smoothness of opera mini next currently has. Opera mobile's scrolling is way too choppy in framerate.

not sure exactly what you mean. if you mean within the browser itself, not sure. haven't seen anything like that. But if rooted, you could just use AdAway and it'll block all ads period. works very well and speeds up browsers even more because it not loading flash ads.

Sorry, yeah, I meant extension for the browser itself. I tried AdAway, it works, but as soon as I add more hosts file (totalling roughly 8megs of hosts file), the app crashed with out of memory error (which surprised me because it works on my samsung galaxy s phone running CM7). So currently I am manually copying the hosts file from my linux to ATP's /system/etc; with just minor alterations to make - a little of a hassle.

Thanks for reply.

Op are you sure this update on Opera Mobile gives us flash.I looked at it last night but the update said nothing about flash.It did say something about having better support for the Samsung 7.7 or something.Another thing what is up with all the new permissions Opera wants now (being able to take video & pictures of what's on your phone)..they're getting a lot of complaints about it too.I love Opera but what gives?

Default Opera mobile freezing after update

I have been lucky enough to have no problems until now with my Prime or the apps on it.

Unfortunately this update has made my Opera Mobile unusable. Within three minutes it freezes, usually after I've clicked on a link.

I've restarted the tablet to no avail. Will uninstall and reinstall Opera now.

Update: After reinstall the freezes continue, this time even sooner. Anyway, this problem along with their new permissions makes it an easy choice for me. I'm looking for something to replace it. Currently using Dolphin HD but keeping my options open.

don't really see how. its very stable and hasn't froze or rebooted on me once since update. alot better than stock or ICS+ browser. plus I'm on .15. nothing wrong with Dolphin HD if it works for you. that's what's great about choice of browsers to use. Opera still the fastest n most stable around. now with flash support back n better, this my main browser again.
