"Close, but no cigar."
Speed Dial style bookmarks, fast loading pages; noticeably faster than Safari on 3G, Edge, and WIFI.
The zoom functionality isn't nearly as intuitive as Safari so it feels like a step back. Viewing web pages in Opera Mini isn't very fluid. Browser feels very clunky.
If you're anti-Safari and want a good browser, this may be your best choice; but if you're used to the way Safari works and are excited about a faster browser, actually using the browser itself may slow you down. I kept it as a backup browser, but I'm not sure when I would use it.. oh and I should also note, I'm running 4.0 beta, so that could possibly have an effect on Opera's performance.
