Default Opera Browser beta is the best browser

Testing all browser including Dolphin, native, skyfire.... the best on all test Opera.

I compared Opera with Safari running on ipad (matching result)

check acidtest.org both score 100/100

How does it handle pinch to zoom and double tap to enlarge the column you tapped? I'm currently enjoying the latest Miren RC as it's so smooth, but anything that is even faster may be enough to change my mind .

Opera is the smoothest browser as it is GPU accelerated on the Tab. As an overall package it isn't quite up there with the likes of Miren or Dolphin imo.

No offense to anyone, but I think Opera sucks **** through a garden hose. Who cares about speed if half of the pages don't render correctly.

I'll never understand the Opera lovers.

its all choice and opinion but Miren is very nice looking, fast, (at least faster then stock on my GT) and intuitive. i used Dolphin HD but something simpler and appealing about Miren made me bounce...
my two cents.

DONATE TO ME
A couple of times a year for the best part of a decade, I give the various Opera browsers another try, and I always find them to be a complete waste of time, either they're slow, they don't render pages "correctly", or their UI is just a complete mess. I'm sure it's fine in _some_ cases, but for my uses I find it to be horrible when compared with some of the other alternatives.

FWIW - Firefox mobile isn't looking promising, takes too long to start and doesn't seem to accept pages passed to it from many apps to open. I'll stick with DolphinHD until something that is better all-round turns up.

Edit: Hadn't heard of the Miren browser until just now, having a look at it and I'm quite impressed. Might make my primary for a while.

Spelling essentials:
1) There is NO SUCH WORD as "alot" - It's "a lot"
2) The shortened form of You are is You're - NOT Your
3) Loosing & Loose have completely different meanings to Losing & Lose.

I also like Miren, but does anyone know why it always stays "zoomed in" on certain pages? For instance, if I load this web page on Miren (or any other browser besides Dolphin that is based off of the stock browser), it always loads up zoomed in to the upper left of the page. No matter what zoom settings or text size I tell it to use, still the same. Dolphin HD is the only one that doesnt do this.

Anyone??

I can't live without gesture support.... Dolphin HD for me... just hope they keep on improving it. Pinch to zoom could be smoother
