just read the "bible" and it said you cannot launch OM directly from email links. That is a bummer.

Sorry, I haven't had the time to update ALL my previous Bibles (there're tons of them - just think of how much time I'd need to update all of them whenever a new, say, hack is implemented / new version is released) to reflect the latest changes. You'll need to check out http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=347689 . Start at the END of the thread and read in the opposite direction because the latest enhancements aren't reflected in the thread starter post.

My Opera Mobile automatically opens email links instead of letting PIE open them.

I never remember setting it up this way. Is this a registry setting? What if you want to switch back?

There is an option in Settings to unregister this.

Opera mini is great... on my sony ericsson K810i.

But for polaris or kaiser, Netfront 3.5 technical preview is awesome.
The rendering is perfect and it is as fast or faster than opera mini. It is like desktop browsing. Please install and see by yourself. The 3.5 technical preview is valid till 31 march I think.

I have tried picsel browser, minimo and opera mobile (9.5 beta) but my choise is for sure netfront 3.5

I have used and tried the following:

1. Opera Mini v3.1.7203 advanced
2. Opera Mobile v8.6
3. Minimo
4. Netfront v3.5
5. PIE

I dislike Opera Mini because you have to go into Java, and it's not that great for me. Yes, it is fast but useless for my needs.
PIE is usable but not great.
Opera 8.6 is very good, handles downloads well and I like the tabs. This is my second choice for a ppc browser.
Minimo is crapola...it is actually unusable it is so slow. I use Firefox on my laptop and it's great, but minimo sux like electrolux.
NETFRONT is the way to go for mobiles!!! You get VGA resolution up to 1024x860 I think and it has smart scroll which is as smooth as silk. It is also much faster than any of the other browsers above. I have only started using this and I haven't tried downloading anything yet. It also has tabs and lots of user-defined settings for display etc. Very fast and the closest to a pc browsing experience IMHO.

I will keep you posted as to my experience with Netfront v3.5.
