    I’ve never found the standard browser anywhere near as quick and easy to use as Opera 10 Beta. In Opera it’s wonderful using the numeric keys to quickly go page up, down, left and right, and the 5 key to zoom in and out. It’s a shame you can’t change the default browser – I’ll have to spend some more time with the standard one to see if I can get used to it.

  • Beowulf

    Opera is very buggy and has lots of memory leaks despite being cute.
    SkyFire is the best browser for the E72

  • pong

    can you browse continuously browser large web-pages in e72 browser? or does it starts giving the ‘out of memory message’ ?

  • Gabe

    Do you know how to open a web page in a new browser window in the e72 browser? Sometimes I find that I have multiple windows open but the help doesn’t say how to do it!

  • JR

    I agree with Beowulf… SKYFIRE is sweet on the E72 with a full flash support on web pages and gives you a desktop feel while browsing. There is not much memory leakage which makes browsing an enjoyable one.

    Two thumbs up!!!

    I have a problem with the browser zooming. When I have text page loaded and press * it does not reformat the page and i have to start to scroll left to right to read. Annoying. The E71 reformatted. But only after I uninstalled the stupid Psiloc font magnifier. On the E72 the font magnifier file is hidden, i.e. cannot be uninstalled from apps. Anybody out there who knows how to uninstall the font magnifier? thanks.

  • Steff

    I agree with Kenneth. The Opera is a good browser and it is a pitty that it cannot be changed to default browser.

  • ked

    Also in the google search page, click on settings n change the option FORMAT PAGE TO VIEW ON PHONE to no..

  • mukesh

    ya there’s no save page option in the e72 wheread old phones like e63 have this option. This sucks. Also, i have to set the default access point for internet in the browser as well as settings menu every time i swith on the phone, else it keeps asking to select access point the moment i open the net. This is annoying. I even upgraded the software version with the hope that it will fix it, but all is still the same. Anyone else with same issues?

    i dno how to use my nokia e72s internet ,everytime i try it says connection faailed ?

  • oscarwilde

    The inability to save pages is a major pain. On my previous e71 I could print pages – great when you look up directions or info for where you’re going.

    Since then I’ve had Windows Mobiles – horrid experience but at least could save page and then print it.

    Got my e72 assuming it would still be possible to print web pages so very disappointed that it is not.

    Along with my phone’s continual freezing – mainly when writing or replying to SMS but also sometimes in browser and email/calendar – this is not a good experience so far.

    Anybody know how to fix either issue?

  • E72 sucks…

    Yes, it’s extremely frustrating that E72 doesn’t let you save web pages like the E71.

  • eric

    got an E72 and works just fine am using the opera 10.1 mobile browser which is really great however I wouldnt mind trying out skyfire is it reall that nice? i woild also love to open some of my webpages in full desktop mode like fb just havent figured out what to do although initially my opera mobile used to open fb in desktop mode which was really nice, the only thing I hate passionately about this phone is hunging only God know…hungs like hell!! Especially if you fill your sd card halfway wonder why????
