    There is nothing wrong with Opera. The currently available applications that are the best are Opera and Bolt.

    I like Opera Mini. I find it works very well.
    Opera has been making browsers since 1994 and is a very well respected software developer.
    I wouldn't necessarily agree to the use of the term "dangerous" as, in my opinion, most security risks while using a browser can be averted by common sense on the part of the user; however I do believe Opera is a trustworthy source for quality software.
    Try it and see. Worse case, you remove the app if you don't care for it.

    depends if you need to see the full site or not. if you need the web for purpuses like me, in which i dont need the whole website, i just need the info found on the cite, then the BB browser is surfice. but if you want the eye candy and near full web internet experiance, then you may want to download and use Opera or Bolt Browser

    Opera Mini is faster than my BB browser. Its why I use it. I just wish it had the mouse and not the "highligh" as you move around the web pages.

    Opera Mini is great for veiwing the full version of websites. It also load the full versions faster than the default browser. Opera Mini does the best, as far as, rendering forms on secure sites. Sites I would have issues with using the default browser or Bolt, work fine using Opera Mini.

    I'm reading this using opera mini and almost crapped my pants when I saw the thread title. I just switched from Bolt yesterday and so far I'm liking opera mini more.

    Tried Bolt, didn't like it and tried to play a youtube video and it won't work. I like Opera Mini, faster and much zippier than the BB browser.

    BOLT = Rubbish.
    Downloaded twice, very slow.

    I will trying Opera Mini although I am satisfied with the original browser, it's always good to try something new.

    I wouldn't think that Opera is dangerous, it's very well known.
