When i compared the loading times of Nokia inbuilt web browser and the Opera Mini 4 i found that the Nokia browser is much more faster than OM4 . Also when i tried opening up techlivez.com it takes forever to connect and couldn’t load the webpage while at the same time and same connection settings Nokia inbuilt web browser was quick to open the site.
Below are some screenshots first one is Nokia’s browser , second one is Opera Mini 4 and the last one is google.com in OM 4, strange that Google wasn’t able to detect that the page was requested from Opera mobile version and instead of rendering a mobile Google version it shows the actual page as it appears on the desktop browser.
If you open google.com from Nokia’s inbuilt web browser it opens up a google mobile version which is optimised for mobile surfing and saves data costs.
