    Apple almost certainly won't allow the iPhone to have another browser.

    I'm sure Apple would not like it, but I wonder if they would be pressured to do so.

    Isn't having a browser monopoly what MS got in trouble for a while back?

    Couple problems with that...

    Also since it duplicates functionality of Safari, I wonder if Apple would allow it. (Google 'Podcaster'.)

    On PC's, because they were in fact monopolizing browsers on 3rd party machines.

    What's even worse is that there is a VERY SLIM chance it will even be available for jailbroken phones. I think Apple would shut that down in a heartbeat. :(

    :apple: AFAWK can not touch jailbrake apps. with out some coding in the next firmware release?

    I think :apple: is a little leary to pull such a stunt after the 1.1.1 backlash :rolleyes:

    It won't happen. I'm pretty sure third party browsers are forbidden. They could go underground and put it on cydia, but I'd bet anything they won't get it in the appstore. Surely, they'd know this by now unless Apple has told them otherwise.
