    Ah, I had forgotten to download it until now. Hopefully it's a viable Safari replacement.

    Unfortunatly the zoom and scroll issues make it unusable

    God... just noticing that. 3 different pages, three different behaviors when I turned my iPod touch into landscape mode. Oh well, here's to hoping for version 2.

    It's getting rave reviews elsewhere. Not everyone's taste of course.

    It's really fast for reading forums and I can go back a page without reloading.

    The only minor thing I don't like about it, is that the first <- back click undoes the zoom and it takes another press to actually go back a page.

    It will be a top app while everyone downloads it and finds out it stinks.
    Bad page renderings, quirky scrolling, gimped zooming, and no ability to copy text makes it a non-starter for me. I'm hoping it'll improve because I want to like it.

    I've read some positive reviews and I wonder if maybe I downloaded a the wrong Opera browser, because I'm just not seeing the speed increases everyone refers to. I can load macrumors.com in 16 seconds in Safari, and Opera Mini shaves 3 seconds off that. I think I'll just take an extra breath and view the page with correct formatting, thanks.
