There has been much hype about google chrome lately, mainly due to the sleek interface & syncing between the computer & iPhone. However I still found it sluggish at times on my iPhone 3GS & loading pages sometimes lag, scrolling also stutters at times. Recently I tried using opera mini for a change & boy did that change everything. Loading pages were lightning fast as the pages were mostly rendered on their server site & then sent to the phone, helping to save data usage & provide a speedier experience at the same time. Loading the full desktop version of nytimes took only less than 6 seconds on 3G(not joking). And I was wondering why not many people appreciate such a good web browser alternative. Is it because the desktop version of google chrome is more popular, that's why people like the mobile app as well?
