    Google Chrome does not run on BlackBerrys. I ran it on my PC for a couple of days and deleted it. I went back to IE8.

    The built-in BlackBerry browser works very well for all the websites I visit.

    There have been many threads on this subject and the standard browser ususally wins.

    Title Question: Blackberry's Browser!!!

    Body Question: No, Google has not made Chrome available for the Blackberry yet. Right now there is the Blackberry Browser, Bolt, Opera Mini and Skyfire.

    You are probably correct... I knew there was another and when I used Search the first Blackberry compatible browser I found was Skyfire.

    I had been a long time Opera user up until 2 weeks ago. I finally started using the native browser, learned the shortcuts and LOVE it.

    The best thing to do turn javascript off and only turn it on (by hitting "J") when needed.

    Ditto!

    And, Facebook in Bolt is 1000 times better than the FB app, or the mobile site. It feels just like using FireFox on my PC.

    I find Opera Mini to be the best. The one negative is that the trackpad is less sensitive with Opera than on anything else you do on a 9700, meanng occasionally a lot of scrolling, but if you use 2, 4, 6, 8 to navigate around, that reduces the problem a lot.

    I have never ever got on with Bolt. I suppose I must be doing something wrong, but I always find it ugly and borderline unuseable.

    You'll find that the native browser will run faster with java turned off.

    Pages load much faster.

    I never liked BB browser because it was slow, text wasn't rendered to fit the screen, and Opera had better page scrolling (using numbers for screen scroll). After learning the native browser I learned turning javascript off dramatically increased speed, I can move the cursor near the start of a text entry and hit "Z" to make it fir screen, and I can hold "alt" with the trackpad for easier scrolling. Plus, the browser looks cleaner than the rest.

    Thx for the answers regarding java. I use Bolt for almost everything, but the stock browser for select things.

    Opera mini > all other browsers.

    1. Tabbed browsing is extremely useful.
    2. On avg loads faster than the native browser without having to turn java on/off.
    3. RSS.
    4. Better looking browser.

    I'm voting for Opera.

    I am a big nerd when it comes to everything matching on my phone, so I downloaded magicIcon so I could change the opera browser app icon to the OEM globe icon so that all of my icons matched.

    Opera is superior in overall feel in my opinion. Bolt's font is so small and so ugly! Opera looks smoother and the interface matches more to my liking. I also love the browser's overall feel. So that's my vote.

    The stock browser is not bad and works well for almost every site I use.

    Opera Mini loads pages much faster, especially on slow connections, but the UI is a bit cumbersome. But between the two I almost always load the content I need without a problem.

    I mostly read news, blogs and forums on the phone, I'd say about 90%. For the rest, like filling forms, online banking etc. It usually works, but sometimes I'm blocked by some useless JavaScript. But problems are fairly rare.

    Nothing but bolt for me- since it went to 2.1 I havn't used anything else.
    Shows up the native browser big time with its quick rendering and tabbed browsing.
