Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

“Opera Mini for iPhone: Will Apple approve it?”

It’s not quite clear and I’m not certain (because Opera definitely wouldn’t be too proud of it it that were the case), but it sounds a lot like Opera Mini for the iPhone will just be a version of Mobile Safari that loads optimized data from Opera’s proxies.

If that’s the case, it definitely has more of a chance to be approved on the App Store, and I’m curious to see if the public takes the bait — the whole idea is the exact opposite of what browsing the web on an iPhone is about, but some people must be frustrated by slow network speeds and ready to try something new (abandoning all expectations of privacy in the process, among other things).
