    Sounds like Opera is ready for a fight when Apple rejects it on the basis that it doesn't use webkit. Surprised Opera is so confident that Apple "should" approve it. Once rejected we will see Opera available in Cydia within two months time

    Scroll on the desktop version is smooth for me. Unlike Firefox where the scroll stops if your pointer hits an embedded video Opera scroll is very nice. I didn't change any settings either. Sure you got the latest version?

    [ver10.10] correction; when i use the scrollbar on the right its fine[smooth]. but when i put two fingers on my trackpad and drag to scoll, it is jittery. [didnt do this in safari] no pref change that i noticed.

    There are options under Opera/Settings/Preferences/Advanced/Browsing but not sure if any will help your experience. Worth a try though.

    I got to admit I'm curious as to how that was done as well. Any takers on the answer?

    there are ton of things you can customize! it's like jailbreaking your safari!

    for example: you can move your "page loading status" around, and change the style of it.

    Opera does appear fairly confident that this will get approved. Either that or they are looking to fight Apple for it.

    I can't wait to get my hands on this thing, but I'm also curious to see the fallout from a rejection. My gut tells me this will end up in "approval limbo" like Google Voice.

    the only thing i hate about Safari is that the bars take up too much space/ no full screen browsing.

    I'd like to actually get my hands on it to see how much faster it actually is, usually these tests seem kinda biased/rigged in favor of the browser their for. But who knows, maybe it is that much better.

    well i opened safari along side of opera, to the same page. and the scrolling jitter is quite noticeable with opera. it looks like its missing a few frames, as you scroll. really kind of jarring. overall im not displeased. just wish i could get rid of that jitter. adding bookmarks isnt as easy as safari either

    Im curious to see how this works with 3G. Why wouldn't they show it with 3G in the demo video?

    Because 3GS is the newest hardware. Wouldn't Apple try to shoot this down because "duplicates process" excuse they gave others trying to make an app Apple provides stock.
