  • Opera Mini In the Hands of App Store Approval Process


    It appears that Opera have finally finished up their final touches on their long-awaited Internet browser for iPhone, as they have revealed that it has finally been submitted to the App Store. They even have posted a counter displaying EXACTLY how much time has passed since it was submitted for approval (Apple had better take heed of this unless they want some bad publicity for the App Store). Opera claims their browser to be up to six times faster than the built-in Safari.

    There have been other "alternative" browsers released on the iPhone; however, they are all based on "webkit," the web-rendering engine used by Safari. They aren't in themselves new browsers; the are only front-ends to Safari's solution to display the web. Of course, they may also get denied for "duplicating functionality," as many apps already have, including GV Mobile, which has since ended up on Cydia.

      ^i don't really care. I would definetly like a quick browser even if it doesn't support java and other stuff that safari does.

      Oh yeah, don't get me wrong for a quick browse it's going to be awesome but I'm hoping people aren't expecting a Safari replacement.

      Also, not having a JavaScript interpreter means it MIGHT actually get approved.

      Possibly a tactic on their part? Hopefully they will try to sneak java in an update if it gets approved.

      Also, I suppose it's not fair to say it doesn't have java at all. As I understand it, some of fbe java is handled by the proxy

      I thought it was, cause haven't heard anything else about it.. But you think they would stop the counter, or at least tell us that it was rejected..
