Cracked.com on a blackberry

When I'm surfing through cracked.com on my bb, I'll often have articles appear with zero content. The only thing that shows up is the cracked.com header n footer and the "View on Single Page" hyperlink, i.e. evertything you'd see on a regular article page but the article itself is mia. I want the el ol els, doubleyou tee eff!

Cracked have a few suggestions for optimizing viewing on BB devices, which I have implemented. This still happens. Frequency is about 40-60 of the articles I attempt to read. I can discern no difference between articles which appear and articles that don't. Of course, when I search these articles out on my PC they show up as normal. I have not noticed this phenomenon on any other website. My bb is a Curve 8330.

Any idea what's causing this &/ how to fix it?

    I haven't tried Cracked.com, but this happens to me on tons of sites.

    Basically, the BlackBerry Browser sucks. At least, the BB Storm one does. I hate it.

    I recommend installing Bolt Browser or Opera Mini. I prefer Bolt, personally. Note: I think it does route you through their server first or something and occasionally throws an ad at you (like, very rarely). Just wanted to warn you first in case that bothers you.

    Out of curiosity, do you have a Storm?

    OK, I'll try an alt browser, see if that fixes things.

    No, just the Curve.

    That actually happens to me on my HTC Incredible as well. It's their mobile site. If I go to the non mobile site the content will display.
