Apple has finally approved the Opera Mini browser for the iPhone. Here is the link.
The company claims that they use their servers to compress the data before sending it to your iPhone to speed up page-loads. I did a rudimentary test, and it took Safari 23 seconds to load kombitz.com while Opera Mini only took 13 seconds. I also observe the speed increase when I visit some other sites. This approach definitely works. This feature is useful for older iPhones that use a slower processor.
One reviewer has said that, since the data goes through Opera’s servers, your passwords may be seen by Opera’s employees. Before Opera clears this allegation, you may want to consider not doing banking or entering other sensitive data through the Opera Mini Browser.
