“Tested: Opera Mini browser on iPhone”

Still, it does feel a lot like the company is flaunting Opera Mini on the iPhone so that it might be pushed through Apple’s approval process on a tide of widespread support, but Grønvold insists this is not the case.

The widespread support of actual iPhone users who are clamoring for a “better” web browsing experience? Hahaha! Or you’re talking about the support from a bunch of Linux geeks who will never ever buy into Apple’s closed platform anyway?

(Seriously, though, it’s been made pretty clear before that Apple would never let any third-party Javascript engine enter the App Store — regardless of the whole “you’re competing with our own apps” policy that’s reverted every other month.)
