Thanks for the feedback. Bought the iPhone version and testing the Android beta (on Nexus). Agreed much better than eithers browser.

So much better than Safari but it seems to crash quite often. I just updated to the new version (out last week I think) so I hope it fixes the problem.

I've been using Opera on WM and it worked fine before the upgrade but now when I hit the link for last page I go to the first page of the thread. Very annoying.

I get the the last page from the "Last Page" link on my WM/Opera setup, but while before the upgrade a link to a subscribed thread in the User CP somehow magically took me to the the first unread (I wasn't comfortable about the magic part, but that was the functionality I wanted, so it was all good) Now, I get plopped at the first page of the thread. Given Chris' experience, it's quite strange.

Just switched to mobile theme on Opera/BB a few days ago and so far works like a dream. Lightning fast and very stable. Everything seems to work great. Thanks!

Has been for some time -- it's been a while so I don't remember all the details, but IIRC if you go to opera.com with the default BB browser, either you're offered the chance to install the Opera browser or it's easy to navigate from there to a page where you can.

Opera Mini is the next generation mobile browser for any mobile phone.

Been using this on BB for maybe a year and it's great! Much better than the BB browser - faster - much faster, better controls. Takes some getting used to, though - moving trackwheel horizontally scrolls fast a page at a time, while moving trackwheel vertically scrolls slowly, a line at a time.

and now it's back again, though expect issues till the theme gets updated to match the changes made in the latest vBulletin version.

Cool. I installed it on my wife's BB. It's very different from Opera Mobile on my WM phone, but it looks good so far.

yeah opera mini and opera mobile are very different, opera mobile is an actual full browser where as opera mini is actually doing the rendering of the page in question on opera's servers and displaying the results.

I'm tempted to give Opera Mini a spin on my own phone. It seemed to do well on big, fat pages that aren't designed for mobile viewing.

Not sure anyone has a need for this anymore, but finally there is a new mobile theme/style for Head-Case. Point your mobile browser to: mobile.head-case.org and you should be all set. You may need to login first before it switches to the mobile theme and there's a default button at the top right to switch back to the default theme at any time. The mobile theme is also available in the Style Chooser located at the bottom left of every page, it's the one labeled "Lightweight".

Splendid! Now I can go back to reading Head-Case on the sly in boring meetings.

But it won't let me log in. In both Opera Mobile and Mobile Internet Exploder, I enter my credentials and it returns me to the logon prompt.

Hmm. Update: I navigated away and then back again and now I'm logged in. But I'm not seeing the style chooser On mobile or with Safari or Firefox on full size machine) and the pages don't look quite like the mobile themed ones. Could something be amiss?

Not that I'm needing the mobile theme, but on Chrome I can't see the style chooser button by the left low corner either.
