PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Take a look at this link to the worldwide Apple iTunes App Store top ten lists. Currently, Opera's Mini Web Browser is the #1 free app in every country. Is it just curiosity, or is there really big demand for an alternative web browser for the iPhone? (As for me, I downloaded it, tried it for 2-3 minutes, and went back to Safari. Did everyone else do that too?)

Somewhat faster, hideous interface

Just what value did Opera thought their custom widgets bring over iPhone OS'?

The UI functionality is hideous: scrolling, pop-up menues, toolbar, title bar (why is there one, to begin with?). They are evidently worse than what the OS provides. Why redoing everything (and do it badly)?

Still, I guess it is pretty cool for people (like teenagers) trying to save money on their data plan.
