    What I found funny was the praise from the engadget author who has seamingly been at the kool aid for too long.

    Its faster? Wow, if only us Opera Mobile Turbo users for the last year had been saying this... Oh wait, we had.

    The question is will this be a turning point in allowing more people to play on the iPhone outside of the jobsian totalitarianism, regrettably we all know the answer to that is no.

    it doesn't seem to size the pages as well as safari. there are options to avoid downloading images or reduce the quality, which should speed things up, so hopefully they can get a few updates etc and make it better. or maybe give safari a kick up the arse to improve things there

    The page sizing issue is the main reason I won't be using this browser for the time being. It makes Reading sites a pain compared to Safari, hopefully something that can be addressed in a future update. I love everything else about it, although I'm not finding any faster than Safari at the moment. The homepage with the tab icons is a nice touch.

    I'll keep it installed for now and give it another go when it's had an update to see if the page sizing problem has been improved. Until then i'll stick with Safari.
