    I noticed that there are 3 browsers in the storm
    Firefox
    Internet Explorer
    Blackberry

    I have kept it on Blackberry because i still like getting the mobile version's of certain sights like bank of america and you tube. I havent seen a difference in browsers between the IE and the Firefox. Has anyone noticed a difference??

    Not different browsers, just different emulations.

    By different emulations do you mean different User Agent IDs, or is the internet browser somehow rendering the pages using different engines. I'm guessing it's just a User Agent preference?

    I believe that it just changes the user agent.

    The different options in the BB browser just allows you to select which browser that the website thinks that you are viewing the page in.

    When in blackberry, a lot of major websites will direct you automatically to a mobile version of the webpage.

    I have mini-opera, I use that probably 50/50 with the BB Browser. Opera is definitely quicker, I find it hard to get adjusted to clicking/tapping things in it though.

    How do you get to them? I can't find them in my Storm.

    With the regular browser open, hit the menu button>options>browser configuration>All of the check boxes should be checked, browser identification used to be browser emulation, I have tried all 3, internet explorer seems to work the best on wap sites btw, normally most pages will render best with it set to BlackBerry..At the bottom of this page is your home or start page, at any time while your browsing, you want a new home page, then come here and click that use current button...this is my home page..best BB home page ever...

    BTW after your done selecting all of this, you need to hit menu and save....

    Is the BB browser a LOT slower than Opera, or only by a few seconds? I use Opera on my Pearl, but that's because the BB browser on it is horrendous for non-mobile sites. Opera works like a gem.

    It's not near as bad as what you're used to

    I'm not sure I like Opera. I just downloaded and used it a bit and was annoyed with a bit with the functionality of it all. Loved it on the Curve, but not sure if it's a good fit on the Storm.

    I'll give it a few days to warm up to it though.
