    Default [QUESTION] Opera Mini as default browser?

    Does anyone know how we can set Opera Mini for S60v5 as the default browser?

    Opera Mini cannot be set as default. You can set opera mobile 10 as default as it is a fully functional .sis browser while opera mini is in .jar format and java has annoying limitations... :P

    I'm not talking about Opera Mini for Java, I'm talking about the 5.1 beta for S60(which IS native).
    Check this link:

    So is it showing up in default apps after installing?

    Even when I set Opera 10 as my default browser anytime I click on search or facebook or something like that it still opens up the default browser.

    No, only Opera Mobile does. But this also happens with other browsers like UCWeb or SkyFire, so I was wondering if someone knew how to work around this thing.
    My guess is that a file inside the .sis file has an attribute that tells the system it's a web browser. I couldn't find that file however. I tried to do a comparison between the sis contents of Opera Mini and the one of the Opera Mobile, but had no success. My knowledge of Symbian manifest files is inexistent so, maybe someone knows something.

    I think that the many apps open links by launching the web browser by it's app id and not using the system API. I got the same issue with Gravity which keeps opening links in the Symbian browser instead of opera mobile which is my default.
