You should also try Boat browser and Angel browser. For me the ... more@ Derhunter23
I will try those 2s. Each one looking pretty cool for what it purposely designed for.
Coincidentally, I did come across Slimboat Browser and looking pretty cool too, gonna give that one a go as well!
for me, I have been using Opera since birth of XP on my PC and knew how Opera run fairly well. I will try to compare to only Opera, since others like Firefox, ie, Chrome,Safari and many others failed.Opera can be installed onto USB flash drive and use on any PC.
Even though, I like Opera but I still need IE
[deleted post]Odin3 is the program you use to flash a ROM you download from the internet using your PC, to your phone.
you have a SIII I9300 made for country "Z" that has the 4.0.4 ROM and you find out that country "y" has the SIII I9300 but there ROM is 4.1.2
if you cant wait for your SIII made for Z to get that update using kies, you can become a member of the sammobile web page. and download the ROM for the SIII made in country Y and flash it to your phone using Odin3.
links to how its actually done is given over and over again in this forum, so do a search. i don't think i should put it every time a new person ask.
italodisco, 05 Jan 2013I dont understand why im not getting jellybean update on my s3? I have tried samsung software ... moreWith the nexus you have to wait om updates too. All nexus don't get the updates the same time as well.
If you dont like waiting use Odin and flash your phone manually.
Anthony, 03 Jan 2013Do you want to do the unofficial manual upgrade to the official jelly bean?yes i want it for my phone...
btw will it harm my phone

I dont understand why im not getting jellybean update on my s3? I have tried samsung software Kies and on wifi as well but still no update.im ztill stuck with sthpid ice cream sandwich. Im thinking of replacing my phone with some nexus model atleast i will get updates quickly. Any suggestions guys? Why no updates for some s3 handsets.i have s3 in black color running ics 4.0.4.
Got mine today and what a great phone it is! Got it for 29990 from ebay.in which is almost 6k cheaper than the retail price. I was using a galaxy SL and migrated all my contacts, call logs and messages in a breeze. All my installed apps too got transferred the moment I logged in with my google account. Great screen, amazing speed and response, very intuitive. Since I have an iPad already I didn't opt for the iPhone5 and no regrets for buying this. Had various options like xperia XL, xperia P, HTC one X and one S etc. but I made a good choice of buying the S3 which is a truly innovative smartphone currently.

You should also try Boat browser and Angel browser. For me the Boat browser is the best but Angel is highly customisable.
