No opera mini afaik, the Polaris browser is great (at least from my very minimal use of it, which means once, for googling and going to howardforums). Renders the pages just fine, and scrolling around/zooming in is fairly snappy. The chief complaint that many have about the internet experience is that it's a bit sluggish, and I'll have to agree with them on that one. The phone is REV.0 3G, so that may explain it.
I think if you really want a great phone for web browsing, and you feel that is the main feature that you want in a phone, I suggest the env touch. Same browser as the choco touch, but much faster connection and a physical keyboard to boot.
Are you planning to use data without a data plan?

Using the drawing pad has been incredibly fun for the past few days, and I'm impressed with how well it responds to the strokes of my finger (heh, don't get me wrong though, it's no Wacom Tablet...). Wonderful time waster when you're bored.
With that said, after getting used to the touchscreen for while now, I hereby upgrade the touchscreen and ui score to a 4.5/5 amd the overall phone score to a 4.3/5
Figuring out the new Chocolate Touch..
