    Opera 4 mobile -- really really bad browser...

    Opera for mobile is a joke...

    very very slow... if you have a redirect in your page, Opera displays a page that says:

    "redirect status: click <url> to go to this page..."

    or some incredibly stupid thing like that....

    but it still won't redirect me!!! even if I type the url directly I still land on the "Redirection Status" page... this is RETARDED....

    any comments?

    (and why won't it support rounded corners? man, what a joke...)

    (this is Opera on iPhone....)


    PS: I just opened a NEW WINDOW... and typed in url from scratch.... I STILL land on this "Redirection Status" page....

    WTF??????

    How many pages have you seen these problems occur?

    good question.... but since I don't know what sites and have and don't have redirects, I don't know.....;-)

    I have very simple redirects I do in meta tags (so they also w/o JavaScript...) they work fine in all browsers, Opera mobile is the only one where I have seen this very odd behavior....

    thank you.....

    I have also not good experience with Opera on my mobile phone device. It is very slow so instead of using opera browser on mobile device I will prefer firefox browser. This is pretty much faster than Opera.
