    fast yes
    usable no

    my page renderings are all fucked up, one page it pushes all the ads together so the actual content is 2-3 words per line... another page 1/2 the links don't work

    zooming is all or nothing and way to sensitive, scrolling is all fucked up, doesn't remember cookies on my end...

    good start, but won't be replacing safari...

    Odd, im not having any of those problems. The zooming is a little fucked, but works well if you use the single tap.

    Its a very good start, and had so far replaced safri on my phone.

    try opera.com
    or appleinsider.com

    also, mobile sites are hit or miss... for example going to lifehacker will pull up the mobile site, but engadget won't...

    edit: this is what i mean with page rendering issues

    after play with Opera Mini for a day or so, I can say that I agree. It will not replace Safari, but it's a great first start. Especially when you consider the fact that they had no idea if it would even be accepted.

    actually it's an opera issue...
    since everything gets routed through their servers first to compress, some sites lose their formatting... which is the problem with a lot of the rendering issues

    I honestly don't understand how people are using this.

    As far as i can tell theres only 2 view distances, which is incredibly frustrating.

    Its like trying to read a PDF that only has 2 magnification options, 50% and 600%
