Safari integrates so much better. Using Opera is still a pain to use.

Giuseppe says:

Doesnt even have an option to change user agent so it always redirects to those crappy mobile websites...

Samyuel says:

Kind of useless if it's slower/crashes more than safari. So far more stable. Slow though.

JNM says:

Uh...this cuts off text and ALWAYS goes to mobile versions of sites and they are formatted for the iPhone rather than the iPad.

BLiNK says:
