    thanks - but that's not the same as tabbed - their FAQ's show actual tabs at the top of each web page.

    Are you referring to the drawing in the "learn more" section? I think that's just a drawing and not the exact implementation of tabbed browsing on Opera Mobile (The desktop version looks like that, though).

    Anyone know of any browser that will either synch with my Chrome bookmarks or at least allow me to import my Chrome bookmarks?

    Or IE bookmarks?
    I found an app called MyBookmarks:

    https://market.android.com/details?i...Jvb2ttYXJrcyJd

    It lets you import your Internet Explorer favorites into the stock Android browser. Then I think you can probably import into Dolphin your Android browser favs.
    And it did let me import into Android Browser just fine. EXCEPT it doesn't keep the folder structure. So it's almost useless.
    C'mon GOOGLE, get your act together!
    Chromemarks is still the best favorites utility so far I guess.

    Hi I am new here. Just shifted from symbian. Am a long term opera mini user. Opera Mobile for desktop like browsing.UC browser is very good as a opera mini replacement. You should check it out. It will import and export bookmarks from a text file.

    Personally I use Opera. I don't like how scrolling acts in both the stock and dolphin browsers whereas in Opera, scrolling stays at a constant speed. Also, I like the fact that you could set a custom browser user-agent to mask it and make the browser seem like Google Chrome for example.

    thank you everyone for your replies. I dl-d opera and using it now. the text reflow on it is flawless. although i'm a bit surprised and disappointed to find that skyrocket stock browser is lacking such a simple gesture while my Motorola Atrix's stock browser fully supports it.

    If you do not like getting redirected to mobile sites, type this in your address bar

    opera:config
    Under "Quick find" search for

    user-
    Click on done and you should see your User Prefs.
    In this section you should also see "Custom User-Agent"
    In the Custom User-Agent field type

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/A.B (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/X.Y.Z.W Safari/A.B.
    Then save.
    Restart your browser and Opera should act like google chrome on most sites instead of defaulting to the mobile version.

    I do this because setting the User-Agent under settings don't seem to work with any browser including Dolphin, especially when browsing forums. This seems like it's the only way to get the majority of sites to recognize your mobile browser as a standard browser.

    thank you! this is very useful as I tried to track a usps shipment for the past two days and their mobile site sucks. However I think mobile sites always save you data since they dont load a full blown page.
    edit:
    just switched to user agent in settings to desktop. seems to be working for me. usps site no longer starts in mobile but in a desktop mode. this forum as well.. i should test out some more sites though.

    Doesn't using this cause android to be under-represented onsite logs?

    This method masks your phones browser and OS. Site logs see the string I have posted above and report that the browser is Google Chrome running under Windows.

    I just got the Skyrocket on Friday and so far I'm using the stock browser. I like it, don't have any problems so no reason to use a 3rd party one as of now. I did use Dolphin HD browser on my last phone and that was nice. Don't know if I'll ever use another one unless I really need to.
