opera on iPhone is very fast but very bad page formatting! the whole page loads in a linear fashion, no tabs are available and you need to keep scroooolong all the time. this makes it confusing as the different sections load at different parts of a single very long page! hopefully this was a trick to get into the app store and then launch the proper version soon…

This trend is expected… Now even all the rebranded chinese handset makers in India (like Micromax, Spice, etc…) are also including OperaMini with their handsets.. So this is expected as well as nice for many low cost handset users, who don’t have PC in their home…

Opera mini 5 is very hard to use. It crashes more & more. I used it in Nokia 3120c, it crashes just after 3-5 pages or if idle for a while. I am using Opera mini 4 again.
