    Safari crashes on my jailbroken 2.1 at least twice a day, very often 5-10 times a day. Just browsing, nothing special. davidalsion.com, speedtv.com(pretty intensive, but Steve said it was a 'full internet experience') campaignforliberty.com crashes almost every time when I watcha embeded youtube video, and many others crash. It's almost a given. Hell, even the apple website crashes when I use it. Every time. Clean install makes no difference, with or without setting up as a new phone. Safari is garbage on the iPhone. Hopefull someone will release something better in Cydia.

    I was about to say the exact same thing. I've also used Opera on PC for many, many years and I also had it on my Pocket PC and Phones. It is the number 1 browser.

    Apple dont really like anyone taking away focus from thier crappy products so I didnt think Opera would be coming to the iPhone but it would be an awesome app if it did.

    Who in thier right mind would say Safari is good? It's one of the worst browsers out there. I would rate from worst to best as Safari, Netscape, IE, Firefox, Avant, Opera.

    Safari crashes on me all the time. When I am browsing fantasy football stuff and any webpage that has ANY java script on it whether it's supported or not it crashes relentlessly on me.

    I do have Safari crash every now and then, but no more than any other app on the iPhone. It's just a matter of memory management, when an app takes up more memory space than is available sometimes the program doesn't have time to compensate by releasing other pools and when an app runs out of memory - it is terminated! In really bad cases where an app gets so out of control it uses up all of the memory available to the phone itself, that's when your phone ends up restarting (really common in 2.0 and 2.0.1)

    Anyways, I don't really have a problem with the Safari browser - it's not exactly fast, but works great considering that it is a mobile browser afterall. Plus, it's really no surprise that it was rejected, clearly it attempted to 'duplicate the functionality of Safari' just like podcaster and pwnplayer did with the iPod app (even tho podcaster was duplication functionality that was still being developed...)

    Give it a couple weeks, they'll say eff the sdk requirements, do whatever they want and we'll get a much better version in Cydia. That's why we're on this website afterall, isn't it??

    While I do agree the Safari is great on the iPhone as it currently stands, Apple's rejections under the "duplicates something already on the iPhone" statement sure does seem more like "we have that and YOU GUYS might make it better than our native app and we don;t want to be showed up"... why should the iPhone OS be any different than OSX and Windows in that you can download and use freeware even if it duplicates what is already available in the OS? If Safari is good enough, nobody will waste their time with Opera right? Why should Apple care then?

    How about like, Firefox or Chrome for the iPhone. Google already got Google Earth, and now it should also put its wonderful Chrome on it...

    Hey guys, it appears that this may be more speculation than actual news. It's possible that Opera may have never even been submitted to the app store.

    See this article:
    Daring Fireball: Regarding Opera Mini and the App Store
    and this slashdot news post:

    Bleh, Firefox is too featureless after the base install. To get anywhere near the functionality of Opera out of FF you need to spend the time to search and install countless plugins. FF is terrilby slow compared to Opera in both general browsing and downloading. The interface isn't nearly as customizable, it's a huge resource hog, and once again FF is just plain way to god damn slow to be considered a decent browser.

    Firefox tends to be fairly slow for me as well on my mac. It was always blazing on my pc, but that may have just been because all I had to compare it to was *cringe* IE6 (and from what little of IE7 i've used, it seems to be even slower)

    I still default to Safari on my mac, but I keep firefox on the dock next to it, because there are still a lot of pages out there that Safari just doesn't interpret correctly, and some even flatly refuse to load on Safari. Also Safari has a level of integration with the OS that you can't get with 3rd party browsers. And like someone said before, Firefox is a big resource hog.
