Apple I've been meaning to write this for some time, and for all the time I delayed the more poignant the point I wanted to make started to become as new news came out further solidifying my angle. When I begun writing this article the iPad had not yet been revealed, iPhone OS 4 was not on the map and Apple had not yet purchased Lala. You've probably just noticed that all of these events in fact point toward Apple embracing the web more and in this article I will point out why this is not the case because I believe Apple's agenda here is similar to something we've already seen in recent history.

2) But you can’t replace WebKit on iPhone OS and you can’t set Opera to be your "default browser". Any App that launches a website will launch Safari.

Opera Mini is a toy, and Apple know it. That’s why it’s been allowed. It can’t change the fact that WebKit is core to the OS and only Apple have control over it.
