After submitting its iPhone app to Apple for review, Norwegian software company Opera wasn't too hopeful it would be approved. After all, it is a browser, poised to compete directly with built-in Safari. Turns out, the Opera app was approved and is available for free download.
After a slow start, Opera took off after a British ruling forced Microsoft to visibly give Internet Explorer customers a choice of which browser to use. Downloads of Opera software more than doubled following the ruling.
Creators of the app claim that it's up to six times faster than Safari. It features "speed dial," a way to quickly access your favorite sites, and tabs for keeping several windows open at once.
