And again, following the advice of the forums, I installed my first application. Opera Mini. The built in browser is okay, and apparently a lot better than it used to be, but Opera Mini has a better reputation. I downloaded from here.
One nice thing, you can download the PC version of Opera and synchronize bookmarks between your desktop and mobile. I don't want all my desktop bookmarks on my phone, but having my phone's bookmarks on my desktop makes it easier to edit them and add new ones.
