Opera is a web browser that is available both for computers and cell phones, the latter in the form of Opera Mini.
Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner, CEO of Opera, said that the company started development of an Opera web browser for the iPhone, but the development was halted when they discovered that Apple would not allow it.
The main reason why Apple would not allow the publishing of Opera Mini for iPhone was because Opera's functionality can replace that of Safari.
Just as with Opera and Safari, a competing podcast application was developed that could effectively replace iTunes.
For example, Opera Mobile is a suitable web browser to replace the main BlackBerry Browser.
SkyFire and Opera Mobile are sustainable alternatives to the notoriously slow Pocket Internet Explorer.
Opera Mini is one of the better alternatives to consider.
In this way, users had to use Safari to surf the web, not able to try Opera, Firefox (Fennec), Skyfire, or any number of other options that are made available on platforms like Google Android and Windows Mobile.
That's why it's usually helpful to have an alternative web browser installed on your smartphone and Opera Mobile is one of the best.
