    New Opera Mini native WM app

    Opera has released a new version of Opera Mini 5 for WM phones. Java is no longer necessary to run Opera Mini. I haven't had a chance to use it much, but seems to work as good as the Java version.

    Wow I'm loving this. In my opinion this is easily the best browser yet for touchscreen winmo phones. Looks exactly the same as the opera mobile 10 betas but runs way faster and smoother. I love how easy they've made it to manage bookmarks and the tab manager is beautiful. The thing I hated about the 10 betas was that it seemed to take forever for it to react to me clicking a link. I never knew if it was being slow or if it didn't recognize my selection.

    One thing I hate that Opera did was drop the ability to minimize upon exit like in Opera mobile 9.5.

    I was loving it until I discovered that I couldnt post in these forums. Didnt have the issues with certain keys/numbers/letters... just wont post in here.
    Very disappointed..I was actually going to inquire as to how to make it my default browser.

    Doesn't work 100% on my Saga and it's touchscreen. No w or numbers. Can not post here with it either.
