After trying to get Pocket IE (the Windows Mobile version of Internet Explorer) to behave nicely, and display web pages quickly and in a usable format I finally gave up. I switched to Opera Mobile. It’s not free, but with Firefox Mobile still a ways off the $25 is well spent. Some things that it does better than IE include:
- Formatting pages better for the smaller screen
- Handles multiple windows with ease
- Quicker forward an back functions
- Faster as-you-type URL auto completion
- Quicker loading, rendering and scrolling of large pages
- Option for reporting itself as a desktop browser in case you don’t want the mobile version
There’s a 30-day free trial, so you can try it out yourself before buying it.
