Early reviews of Opera Mini for iPhone praised the sheer browsing speed, powering through Web pages up to six times faster than Safari. Due to server-side rendering, Opera Mini compresses data by up to 90 percent before sending it to the phone, resulting in rapid page loading and more Web per MB for the end user. Those familiar with iPhone roaming charges will relish Opera Minis ability to deliver more for less, giving users the Web they want quickly, without, the high costs.
The Opera Mini for iPhone sneak peek during MWC told us that we have something special, said Jon von Tetzchner, Co-founder, Opera Software. Opera has put every effort into creating a customized, stylized, feature-rich and highly responsive browser that masterfully combines iPhone capabilities with Operas renowned Web experience, and the result is a high performing browser for the iPhone.
