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?)

A website I visit almost daily has a weird javascript menu, which works fine in every desktop browser i've tried (IE6, 7, 8, Firefox PC & Mac, Opera, Safari PC & Mac), and works fine in iphone safari.

Opera mini refuses to do anything with it.
I touch it, no dropdown appears, but it zooms in.

I want a single browser which handles all the basics on the sites i visit, so i've stopped using it.

I'll keep it installed incase Apple remove it from the store, but probably won't us it.

Funny thing is the opera mini browser on my 4 year old extremely limited GPRS only Nokia phone handles that menu perfectly fine!
