Windows And thus, Microsoft bites itself in its behind with Metro. As you all surely know by now, the Metro environment in Windows 8, and its accompanying applications, need to follow a relatively strict set of rules and regulations, much like, say, applications on iOS. For one type of application, Metro has already proven to be too restrictive and limited: web browsers. Microsoft has had to define a separate application class [.docx] - aside from Metro and desktop applications - just to make third party web browsers possible for Windows 8.

Opera Mini is closer to a remote desktop app than a browser unto itself.

In fact, there isn't even an HTML rendering engine in Opera Mini (the app). It's really just a graphics viewing program with clickable links and forms fields.

It actually has more in common with a PDF viewer than a browser.
