Opera Mini Browser Approved, Coming to the iPhone Tomorrow [Update: Available Now]
Despite my prediction that Apple won’t let Opera’s mobile browser into the app store, Opera announced today on their web site that the app has been approved and will be available for free tomorrow. Opera advertises that their browser is noticeably faster on slower networks, like the 2G Edge network, by changing how sites render in Opera Mini. But users could potentially be less satisfied by Opera’s “mini-Internet” instead of the “real Internet,” something Apple claims Mobile Safari provides.
Opera offers this link to download Opera Mini for iPhone, but as of this writing the link is not working.
Update: Opera Mini [App Store] is now available for free in the US App Store.
