The default browser that comes with S60 v3 devices is in my opinion one of the best if not the best mobile phone browser available.

When you have power saving disabled, your browsing speed should increase, you'll also be able to discover your wifi network from further away than with power saving enabled. This tweak isn't restricted only to the browser... Most applications that make use of WiFi should be faster, for example EmTube which (for me)is much faster at loading videos. Don't take my word for it though, try it for yourself!
