Opera Software Since the announcement from Opera about submitting Opera Mini to the App Store made it to the front page, I can't really relegate the application's admittance into the App Store to the side column - I'm not particularly liked by the Apple fans as it is. So, here it goes, full frontal: Apple has accepted Opera Mini into the App Store.

Yes it is fast, but it just doesn't fit in on iPhone OS.

A lot of what makes the iPhone great is exactly what Apple UI is famous for. Consistency and well thought out UI controls.

The way scrolling doesn't use acceleration/deceleration just makes it look/feel wrong.

Popup menus appear hidden beneath your finger on the home screen for example hold one of the spaces to popup the clear/edit menu and the menu appears hidden by your finger unlike OS copy/paste menu, magnifying glass etc.

Even what are basic list views and so should be UITableViews are non native, and so feature the odd scrolling.
