I tested and I must say it does not please me.
This browser is still regressive for specialized mobile sites, though on the basis, it is optimized to improve the display of non-mobile sites on mobile devices, by compressing the data via its proxy.
What I have observed :
- Forget the continuous zoom : there are only 2 views
- The layouts are not respected
- The images are too compressed, pixelated rendering
- Text boxes links are difficult to target and must try several times, even for larger text
- No Video : Opera Mini attempts to open the video in Safari via its proxy
If Opera Mobile has been submitted to Apple, it would not be accepted because of its engine identical to Safari.
It is probably for this reason that Apple has accepted the application Opera Mini in his store.
Meanwhile, Opera has gone through one door, more to come... :safe:
