Opera Mini, Opera Mobile, Skyfire, and Iris

I've been testing several different mobile browsers lately. They are:
  • Pocket Internet Explorer (I hardly use this one anymore)
  • Skyfire (lots of positive press recently)
  • Opera Mobile
  • Opera Mini (need Java Virtual Machine)
  • Iris (recently updated)
Verdict? Still don't have one since most of these are still beta versions. I'm still waiting for final versions. While I wait, I think Skyfire is at the top of my list right now.

When will Firefox be available for Windows Mobile? I doubt that Safari will ever be made available for Windows Mobile. Is there a chance that Chrome will make it to Windows Mobile? Doubtful since Android is trying to win some of the marketplace.

  1. I have used each of the browsers that the doctor describes. That is PIE, Opera, OPera MIni, Iris and Skyfire. As the doctor assesses, the very best browser out right now for windows mobile 6.1. devices like the Touch pro and diamond is the Skyfire browser.It is th closest to a full web experience.
