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.

Interpreted on the server?

can someone just comment on this?

"This also happens to be the reason why Opera Mini may be approved where other browsers weren't: since no code is being interpreted (it's all done server-side),"

Does this mean that the whole HTML interpretation and rendering is performed on the server side and the client app is nothing but an image viewer (to say it that way)? I couldn't believe that this would be faster than Safari which runs natively.
