PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless A review of Minimo, the Mozilla-bazed browser for Windows Mobile devices. "I was very impressed with Minimo. Actually, using Minimo showed me that mobile net access might just work. Everyone has been predicting the mobile revolution but I never thought it would happen simply because the screen are too small and the interfaces cramped. Somehow, Minimo sidesteps all these and made a convert of me."

I wonder if there is any way to run any of those browsers (not minimo though) on a standard desktop/laptop computer, specially Opera Mini... IŽd like to see how they compare to Dillo, Links, etc.

Opera Mini requires a JavaME runtime, so even if Opera Mini itself only requires less than 1 MB of RAM to operate (because it's a client browser rendering optimized content coming from Norway's servers, it is not a full browser), the Java runtime and emulator that it requires need over 15-20 MBs of RAM. So that will bring you nothing if you are asking that just because you want to use low-mem apps.
