Opera makes a decent mobile browser for blackberry and iOS. It is not as good as the android browser though in my eyes.

Opera had a History of troubles getting code to work. I was on the development crew at one time reporting glitches.

I have a mrmurdoc question about something I've lived with to some degree for years. I use GMail and on most fresh installs GMail has a problem with cursor jump.
I'll open a new email form and place the cursor in the text box. It then magically jumps to the address box as often as not. I've never sought a cure because I can only guess at the cause. very irritating.

blucher are you on a desktop or a laptop? What is your mouse a cable or wireless?

If laptop then you are more than likely hitting the trackpad. If wireless mouse then some cheaper ones bounce.

Even if it is a wired mouse it could simply be worn out and skipping around.

Desktop using a Microsoft Marble Mouse Trackball. Windows installed it as a PS2 mouse so I just installed a MS trackball driver (not specific to the Marble Mouse). I think you've pointed me at my problem. I'll let you know if it helps.

I'd altered settings in the past but just assumed MS knew it's own dang mice when it saw them.

I wish Chris but the next install might come up problem free.

My naive beginning with a computer had a great early lesson. I wasn't wild about my then laptop's controls but noticed a mouse port so I set out to look for a better mouse.
I typed "mice" in Dogpile and was stunned by the results.

What are you installing?

Gmail is a web based email with no client. You can use a client like GHACK Outlook Express, Outlook, for Thunderbird, or the Add laden incredamail.

I am a logitech guy All I own or buy for mice and keyboards are logitech. Microsoft while they make good software makes JUNK for hardware.

I hate Incredimail more than almost any software I recall. Eight years ago I built this monster and decided to run 2003 server on it. I won't use an MS client and server hated everything but Incredimail. There should be an age limit prohibiting anyone over 9 running that crap.
