    Anyone try the opera browser?

    Says it compresses the weboages which is pretty cool but I couldn't click the screen for the Facebook to put in email nor password, anyone use it?

    Anyone use it? I'm using dolphin HD and I love it but was interested in opera after a post on the homepage.

    On a touch screen device I find Opera very difficult to use. Try it of course, what's stopping you? To be honest I haven't tried it on the Droid but I have an idea that this browser will need some work before it's ready for the real touch phones.

    I tried it on my Storm 2 and found it difficult to type with. I also didn't care for the design and setup. I didn't think it was easy to maneuver. I have not installed it on my Android phone and will probably not.

    I tried it out and I do believe it's faster than Dolphin HD but there were a couple of problems. When trying to scroll a web page, it seems to get stuck and then scroll way to fast. Also, some web pages didn't fit exactly right on the screen, there was a little wiggle room left or right of the screen.

    It does seem to load pages a lot faster though but the problems with scrolling (doesn't happen all the time) just made me go back to Dolphin.
