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.

Actually, if Wikipedia is correct, Opera Mini *does* interpret *some* javascript.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opera_Mini

Initial onLoad events are fired and evaluated on the server, whilst other events are fired on the phone.

It also interprets its own markup language called OBML (Opera Binary Markup Language).

Curiously, Mini is usually built on top of the Java VM, so they must have written something to get around this on the iPhone.

I don't like the chances of this being accepted.

They also have a native client.

I don't see why not. No code is executed locally.
