Opera Software As should be common knowledge by now, Apple is very restrictive and sometimes quite arbitrary in managing its App Store. One thing is clear, though: fat chance there's going to be an alternative browser in the App Store (i.e., one that doesn't use WebKit). Mozilla didn't even bother to submit Fennec, but Opera is going head-to-head with Apple: the Norwegian browser maker has announced Opera Mini for the iPhone, but has not yet submitted it for approval.

No, Safari is not heavily sandboxed. It's one of the least secure browsers.

No one said Apple can't do what they want (not that they can. There are LAWS, remember?). I pointed out the hypocrisy of denying remote code execution, when they are doing it themselves.

And of course the iPhone isn't a community device. That doesn't mean Opera can't drum up some PR to use the market to convince Apple to allow them in.
