    Tried it. Deleted it. 2 stars. Quality first effort and it will find it's niche, but for power mobile browsing like we iPhone owners expect, it won't suffice. I do like its tabbed browsing however...

    However for you users in Manhattan and SF, your browsing experience will be much faster since AT&T can't get the job done for you.

    I tried it but don't care for how the zoom works. I will be sticking with Safari. Out of the browsers I've tried on my iPhone I prefer iCab over Opera.

    I love the way it formats to the iPhone and I don't have to drag the page all over to read a line. I hated Opera on WinMo, but this is nice!

    what the hell? lame

    the reviews, so far, aren't that great

    the zoom feature is a joke (hard to read at times)

    this is gonna take some getting used too

    So far I'm not too keen on the zoom feature. You get two choices:
    1. Not zoomed (good for fast scrolling, but unreadable)
    or
    2. Zoomed (good for reading, but if you need to tap a small icon it doesn't always register.
    I definitel prefer Safari's zoom.

    Also, my predictive text doesn't work with Opera.
    HOW DARE THEY EXPECT ME TO PUNCTUATE!!

    I'm going to try a reboot and see if it helps.

    Also, i noticed on another forum, that when replying to a post, it deleted everything I typed when I tapped 'Done'.
    This has happened twice so far.

    Have you tried changing the font size in settings?

    The speed is nice, but it isn't anywhere near as functional as the Safari browser. Makes me feel bad for the BB users as this is their top of the line browser option lol

    yes. i was more referring to when it's 'zoomed out' (good for fast scrolling, but unreadable).agreed

    however, i am able to copy & paste within a forum i frequent that i could not with Safari for some reason. cool!

    i am using a 3G and it is indeed fast, can't wait to use it on wifi

    this is just the beginning, so i expect good things in the future. i do think i will like it

    Another thing about forum posting with Opera...

    When I reply to a post, after I tap submit, it takes me to the top of the thread page, instead of to what i just posted, as Safari and IE do.

    As you can see by my lowercase i's, rebooting did not help with predictive text.

    On the plus side, it IS faster at loading pages than Safari.

    Edit: it has now erased all my typing for a third time. Luckily I now copy everything before i tap 'Done'.

    Sounds related to something else I noticed yesterday.
    I had a .gif that when viewed in Safari was animated, but,
    when viewed in Opera, was just a static image.
