Opera Software Think of Opera what you want, but those Norwegian guys and girls know how to get publicity. The company has announced it has submitted Opera Mini to the iPhone's App Store, and it has launched a website with a count-up timer, following how long it will take Apple to approve it - if at all, of course.

hibridmatthias asked...

I actually like Opera as a browser. Does anyone else here or is this just an Apple slamming sesson? That would make Opera one step closer to truly cross platform, no? That can only be a good thing...


Opera is an also ran at this point. They were good once, back in the 5.x to 7.x days, but a refusal to listen to their users and willful sabotage of features like adblocking spelled their end as soon as people had something else to go to. Opera may have invented many of the features now popular on Firefox and other browsers, but their top down approach alienated enough users that they have very little chance of recovering their former position today.

These days Opera is to browsers what Palm is to PDAs.
