Set your default Browser via the Switchboard.

When I access links to the Internet via Twitter or an Email client or a shortcut on my desktop I want my Nokia N900 to know exactly which browser to open. That might sound strange, but when one has 3 different browsers (MicroB, Mozilla Firefox or Opera) then you will understand.

Opera 11 is simply the best internet experience.

I installed Opera 11 for Maemo on my Nokia N900 today and have been blown away by it’s speed, super fast scrolling, panning, zooming and all the other fantastic features.

Firefox 4 Beta 4 for Maemo for Free.

Imagine having a Smartphone that only has one Internet browser! Quite a sad thought to be honest. My Nokia N900 happens to have three different browsers loaded at present. MicroB is the default browser and the one I use the most, as I find it to be the most efficient for loading large websites. Opera Mobile 10.1 beta loads quicker in certain circumstances and has an awesome bookmarking menu, while Firefox has an awesome sync option that allows me to take my PC browsing with me on my Nokia N900. Choice is a wonderful thing.
