    Opera Mini is the single most downloaded app for mobile phones.

    A web browser that condenses internet traffic on its servers and then transfers it to your phone.

    It supports tabbed browsing, speed dials and pause and play downloads.

    The only drawback for this app is the lack of Flash support on the Samsung Monte.

    Known for its superb looking interface and very fast speeds and no lag, no stutter functionality this is definitely one the best mobile phone web browsers out there.
