Am I the only one for whom Opera Mobile is way slower than the stock Android Browser?

Hi guys

Sorry to post another browser thread, but i searched and all i could find were threads full of people saying how bleedingly fast Opera Mobile is for them, so i had to post this.

I've been trying it out in comparison to the stock Android Browser (i'm using a Galaxy SII on 2.3.4). To test, i was loading up the full desktop version of the Engadget site, as it has lots of graphics and seems like a good test.

Well, the stock browser finished loading (i.e the little green bar) in about 20 or so seconds (didn't time it exactly as the difference between the two browsers is so massive). On Opera Mobile it loads for, and i'm not joking here, about 2 whole minutes! The site is readable long before then in fairness, but it should not be taking this long surely. I was using 3G for both tests so i cannot see why there is such a huge difference. I tried out a few other sites, and they too were much slower, so it wasn't a one-off.

The thing is i really like the Opera browser and would love to use it, but not with these kind of load times.

Can people share their experiences, and let me know if i'm not alone in this regard, or if i'm missing something?

Cheers guys.
