    Well, after over two weeks of intense waiting, Apple has finally approved Opera Mini for the iPhone/iPod Touch. I've tried it, and its a lot faster than Safari, and has lower memory usage.

    I totally love the app, heck i'm using it now in my ipt3... it's waaay faster than the safari and i love the browsers UI.

    the only thing bothering me is how can i sync it to my bookmarks, kinda like xmarks. I have the my.opera thing but it won't sync in my bookmarks... this browser is amazing and all but it lacks some... well for me at least.

    Wow, this is nice! Much nicer than safari.
    Unfortunately, the iPhone still opens all of its links in Safari...

    “This app is another step toward Opera's goal of bringing the Web to more people in more places."

    LOL what?? 1. The iPhone/Touch already has a built in browser, and 2. Not many people can afford the iPhone/Touch... at least where I am [​IMG]

    So how is that bringing the web to people that haven't experienced it?

    That made me LMAO [​IMG]

    Nothing against Opera, they just should have come up with a better statement.

    Damn, I just saw that.
    Maybe 'cos ShopTemp can make enough $ to keep GBAtemp alive for a long time.

    when u talk about handhelds, opera is unbeatable and u can see even today... as many browsers that have been made by excellent devs on the DS (homebrew) none can reach what opera has

    What the hell, I dreamt about Opera Mini last night?

    Whatever, well now that the browser gauntlet has been thrown down on the iPhone, Apple are going to be hard-pressed to improve their Safari Mobile to the standards Opera Mini presents.

    Or at the very least, give us a firmware update to let us choose the default browser app now, for those of us who want to switch from Safari to Opera.
