Apple's Safari is wack - so what's the best alternative, third-party browser for your iPhone? Annie compares Vanilla Surf and the (approved by Apple, surprisingly!) Opera Mini.
In spite of Apple's reticence to approve apps that conflict with the iPhone's native features, there are now tons of Safari alternatives out there. In this episode, Annie takes a look at two of the more popular ones: the headline-grabbing Opera Mini, and the somewhat lesser-known - but still good - Vanilla Surf.

The two apps are virtually the same in terms of price (both free) and data usage (1.0 and 1.1 MB, respectively),but the differences basically come down to function versus form. Opera Mini has the prettier UI, but VanillaSurf may make better use of your phone's limited screen size. If you'd like a good-looking browser that makes managing multiple windows easy-peasy, download Opera Mini. If you prefer a utilitarian browser with more customization options and nifty features - including the ability to "download" files! - check out VanillaSurf. Or - since they're both free - you could always try both!
