Opera Software, the company behind the popular Opera Mobile and Opera Mini browsers, has created Opera Web Pass which allows those without a data plan to purchase it by the hour or day; you can even buy time to access a particular site...

Be it iOS, android or WP. I prefer stock browsers. They are simply more reliable.

You sound delusional. Opera Mini is king when it comes to 3G browsing because it compresses the data, thus, saving you money if you're on a tiered data plan. Even Opera Mobile has the Turbo feature, which pretty much does the same thing. When it comes to mobile web browsing, Opera is definitely king, IMO.

You're right about that, Opera Turbo helps alot when you're on a slow network or tiered data plan. But if you're doing something important, the stock browser might be best. I've had issues with Opera on certain elements of some pages.

Opera's rendering is horrible. 3G compression doesn't make a browser the best in anything.

Well I prefer stock for Android, which is now Chrome on my Maxx HD, and Firefox.

Before I got the Maxx HD I used Firefox mostly. I tried Opera...it just doesnt seem to be as good as the desktop version. And I like the desktop version.

3rd party browsers always were more functional on Android and had lots of better features than the stock browser.
