    Ummm..never heard of "Web n Walk" so i have no idea if it "bypasses" RIMs servers..but i highly doubt it, and Browser would be your native browser..which definately will NOT bypass RIM. Try them both with WiFi and see which one is "faster" i guess.

    The standard browser will use RIM's servers on cellular data, and will go direct on WiFi. Given the limited bandwidth of cellular data it should be faster to have RIM's compression applied than go direct. This is definitely true if you're on EDGE, which you will be with T-Mobile USA (I'm guessing at which T-Mobile you use). Even with the initial firmware that was buggy and slow the Torch browser loaded pages in the half the time of the iPhone browser on EDGE (according to tests I read, I have not verified this myself).

    I'm not familiar with Web n' Walk, so I can't say how it behaves.
