I hate how font size isn't consistent. Some sites make some font larger so its easier to read but other font is much smaller or larger.
I wish Microsoft would have never tampered with the font and left it alone like the browsers on iOS and Android.
Also is the keyboard kinda slow for you all when you're typing on this site from your phone? It takes like a few seconds for the letters to register on the text field when I type. Very annoying.

Typing in Board Express sucks. Any other typing I do on my phone is very responsive, except for BE. Always have to wait for it to catch up, resulting in several unnecessary errors. How I would love to see a competitive app, at any price.

is this browser supposed to be just like the iphone's safari browser?
they both don't support Flash, but they do support html5 right?
when i compare both phones' browsers, what's the reason there are more videos available to be play on the iphone than on the focus S?

As for browser keyboard problems, only hassle I've had is the occasional keyboard disappearing act. Other than that, it's one of the best mobile device keyboards I've used - on par with the iPhone keyboard and much nicer than any one I've used on an Android device.

I'm guessing it has to do with the hardware difference because it wasn't this responsive on my old Motorola Droid 1 back from 2009. This is also a reason why I was disappointed that Opera isn't making any browsers for WP7. They're mobile browsers are the most responsive when it comes to inputting text into text fields in the browser.

No, but the point was if you can get a browser to pretend it's mobile safari, you get iPhone-optimised versions of sites that are usually better suited to phone browsers than regular sites or ultra-basic mobile sites designed for feature phone browsers like Opera mini.
In an ideal world, the site owner would set it up so that it'd recognise if you were coming in from a phone (any phone) and give you that site.

As the web progresses and more site owners realize the tremendous amount of viewing done from mobile devices I'll bet we see more automatic rendering. Until then our device browsers need to do that work.
I'm pretty impressed with SurfCube it takes up where IE left off.
Like not using screen real estate for the URL addy after you've arrived. While typing I get word suggestions displayed as well as automatic spelling corrections!
No lag at all with keyboard input from my HTC ARRIVE. Easy access to tabs and cool graphical interaction!

A friend of mine traded his iPhone 4 for a Titan today.
I'm typing this from his Titan right now on the full desktop page and it kinda lags when I type. It's not as responsive like when I type in a text message.
Also, some sites I went to didn't render too well. Some fonts were much bigger than others. Has Microsoft made a way to change this?

So what if they sold 37 million iPhones this earth has 7 billion people, 37 million is a small number compared to that.
Also the Wii sold 94.7M does it mean that everybody is going to buy it?
Apple didn't get 37million sales out of no where they have some other companies to thank for example
1. Blackberry since they are going under Blackberry users don't know where to flock to. I doubt they will go with Android because it seems like a more complex solution. Windows Phone isn't available everywhere yet so iPhone is the only real safe bet for them to invest 200$ on
2. Android users. Non techy people that bought their low-end Androids are most likely dissapointed with the platform because of speed issues. Why would they invest another 200$ to buy the latest dual core galaxy/nexus's? Since WP isn't available everywhere yet iPhone is the safest bet to jump to
3. Microsoft. Apple can thank Microsoft for being late to the game. If Microsoft released WP Mango a year after Android debuted so basically the year of the iPhone4 the marketshare would be completely different. Windows phone is a awesome platform for Blackberry and Android (non geeky) users to jump to. WP offers a variety of handsets and prices BUT WP isn't available everywhere yet and not all the top phones are on every carrier. For example all my disgrunted BB users at work I have to suggest the iPhone because Bell doesn't have any 2nd gen WP's available I am going to consider buying unlocked Nokia phones for users now.
They can also thank Microsoft for being late with Windows 8 tablets. If Windows 8 tablets competed with the iPad 2 the tablet marketshare would be different right now to.
Congrats to Apple for all the sucess but IMO they were in the right place at the right time and nothing is messing up their momentum right now not until MS gets their sh*t together with Windows 8
