N97 Web browser is slooww

Using WiFi it is barely noticeable, but when using 3.5G connection, the slowness is very apparent.

Re: N97 Web browser is slooww

I think you just answered your own question with that comment.  If it works OK over wifi, then surely the browser isn't 'slow' as you put it.  3G is going to be slower than wifi, that's hardly a sensible comparison.

Re: N97 Web browser is slooww

matt_t is right about WiFi connections being much faster than 3.5G networks even though if you compare the up- and download rates they shouldn´t be that far apart...

 

Have you tried any other browsers yet?

 

A suggestions: Browse to mini.opera.com with your N97 and install Opera Mini from there, try it out and let us know if it is any better that than the native N97 browser! :smileyhappy:

I'm afraid I must disagree with you. The native browser is much slower in loading pages compare to Skyfire browser.

First of all writing with font size 14 and bold doesn´t make you posts more noticed, what you might get is compliants like this one...

 

You are not disagreeing with me because I havn´t mentioned Skyfire at all in my post. All I said is that Opera is quicker than the native browser. Try to read more closely before you reply...

Re: N97 Web browser is slooww

I just installed Opera Mini 4.2 and it is lightning fast compared to the native browser, probably due the the proxy that Opera uses, all web content comes through their servers and is compressed before it is sent to your mobile.  Pages load almost instantly.
