    For anyone who cares.

    They've fixed the major shortcomings from the previous release.
    - Pages now use pinch zoom.
    - Remembers your open pages when you close and reopen.

    Like how quickly you can navigate back through pages.

    Caveat to the uninitiated and paranoid: All your web browsing is done through Opera's servers which reformat the pages for iPhone.

    It's very very fast, zooming is certainly quick and scrolling is butter smooth.

    Yes, about time...

    Major thing is obviously native iPad support. This browser flies!!! It is a definate improvement over the previous one which was buggy as sin.

    Negatives are:

    Pressing stop in a tab still causes other tabs to stop loading. Annoying!
    Forces the use of mobile versions of websites. Annoying! Should have the option to turn it off.

    EDIT: Oh, and I really need this kind of web compression as I live in a third-world country with expensive, crappy, slow, and capped connections. I do use fastun.com as a proxy as well on a Mac in addition to Opera for Mac. Huuuugeeee data savings. In one week of usage, 350MB to server for compression came to me compressed as 130MB which was a savings of 220MB!! Easily compressible pictures mostly.
