It seemed like they'd be ice skating in Hades before Apple would bless a real competitor to Safari on the iPhone, but Opera Mini has made its way into the App Store. Now that Opera has sailed past the gatekeepers, what's the verdict?
Opera Software on Wednesday released its Opera Mini 5.1 browser for the Android mobile platform, concluding a beta period that began in March. Opera Mini 5.1 offers improved page layout on high-end Android handsets with large screens, its Norwegian maker says.
The Opera Mini has been approved for the iPhone and iPod touch and is now available for download from Apple's App Store. I've taken the browser for a test drive, and so far I have to say that it's good!
