Apple Approves Opera Mini!

Well holy sh*#! Apple actually approved Opera Mini! I never thought this would happen! I guess the beef is between Google, Adobe, and Apple. Opera isn’t involved.

Now, your web browsing is about to skyrocket with these ultra fast rendering speeds that Opera Mini provides. It does all of the heavy crunching on the server side and then sends over the relatively small data (page) to your iPhone. It makes pages load incredibly fast even on EDGE.

So why wouldn’t Apple approve Opera? Because it doesn’t use WebKit (Apple’s rendering engine). Also, they have NEVER accepted any browser without webkit. This is a first. Looks like Steve Jobs couldn’t find a single excuse and just said “Oh, fu*# it, approve it”.

Get it soon on the iTunes App Store! Yay! I’m excited for this!

You can watch a video of it in action here.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
