    Best web-browser for N95?

    Is there some better web-browser available than the one that comes with N95?

    Gotta say that I prefer the on board browser, it's fast easy to use and it's stable.

    The included browser is really very flexible and powerful. It is a major selling point for this device, the updated browser. You're going to be hard pressed to find a better one. I guess it just depends on what you feel this browser is lacking...

    Cool. I don't really feel it lacks something in particular, but then again I haven't tried any Opera.
    But I guess all is good then. Just wanted to make sure I'm using the best out there!
    Thanks guys.

    The Nokia browser is not particularly stable (crashes regularly on some Flash rich sites - well, one that I use in particular), and Javascript does not appear to work.

    Opera on the other hand has yet to crash or fail to display a site, and all the sites I've been on that use Javascript function as I would expect them to.

    If it had the pointer icon it would be perfect.

    Opera is the best Browser

    I would have to say Opera really works fast and really well with my N95. I dont know why but I have been getting a lot of crashing with the Browser that is loaded on the phone. The only thing Opera is missing is a curser a feature I really appreciate with the default browser but they are comming out with version 9 within weeks.

    i jst tried Opera 8.65 and i think it isn't as good as the built in browser.

    i think Nokia did a very good job with it and i don't see a reason to use anything else.

    The built in browser is indeed not bad at all, with many hidden features. checkout the link below..

    I use both Opera mini and the inbuilt.

    I find the inbuilt slower to load, but there is more I can do on it, but i prefer Opera when its just a case of replying to a forum etc.

    Also, Opera works with hotmail.

    My inbuilt browser has issues like some other people
    Newbies, please don't PM me unless you have a Nokia query

    I use Opera Mini but there are some bugs in it that are frustrating particularly data entry onto boxes.

    New Facebook doesn't particularly render or work too well with either the Nokia or Opera browser.

    Oh well.

    the best web browser is Skyfire. Check this /Skyfire: Free mobile browser. The PC web on your phone. Real fast.

    I really like the inbuilt browser too - it's way underrated. Opera Mini is great as it uses less data, so if faster and cheaper on certain connections.

    Skyfire and Bolt are two good new browsers. Skyfire is great for the flash support.
