Default Opera Mini Browser for iphone

Anyone else use this? Just downloaded it right now and using it to browse the forums, test it out.

I still cant believe how ****ty Safari is in todays world. You would think Apple would think of SOME way to improve it but it just downright sucks.

Safari on the 3G was a bit on the slow side so I definitely appreciated Opera.

But, with the iPhone 4, Safari is faster, even without the speed-dial functionality.

Highly recommended for those with a 3/3GS, not needed for an iPhone 4.

I use Opera for Android, and it's ok. Doesn't have flash support though.

I used to love Opera on my windows phone. Now that I have an android I don't really see any reason to install it. I did install skyfire on my android as it's the only way I know to have flash run on my phone.

Atomic has a decent feature set, you might want to give that a try. There is a free and a paid version. Try the free first

I tried Opera Mini on my iPod. It's ok, but the zoom-in isn't as nice as it is in Safari.

I use Opera Mini exclusively on my WinMo phone, though.

Tried it out on my BB.

It works, IDK if it's better than BOLT browser, but both are nice.

I didn't like it on Android either, but the new update at least allows it to become the default browser and has pinch to zoom. Unfortunately, it doesn't allow you to zoom as far as the stock browser. Sometimes you just need your Android browser zoomed in really far to select things properly...

Opera mini is great for EDGE networks on my 3GS. you can't compare the two browsers since opera literally butchers Safari in the speed department!
