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.

How does Opera Mini handle js anyway? That would have to, at least in some way, be handled on the local client, which does give Apple perfect grounds for rejection. Like the terms or not, they are clearly stated and one such is that an app may not download and execute random code.

They could capture event and send them as POST to their proxies who in turn simulate true js interaction and send back the rendered page...

Or something along those lines. I'm no web expert but that can duplicate the functionality, though complex AJAX stuff would get slow like hell very fast :/

It does simulate simple click interactions using request response model.
Probably onload gets somehow implemented on the server.
More complex dynamic stuff (including ajax) is not supported.

Actually, it does support some Ajax.
