Opera Mini listing on App Store to accelerate Skyfire's iPhone strategy
With the news that Apple has given the green light for the Opera Mini browser to get listed in the App Store, comes word from fellow web browser manufacturer Skyfire that it plans on accelerating its strategy concerning what they call the "iDevices". On its web site, Skyfire congratulates both Apple and Opera and says it welcomes the decision by Apple to open up its platform for other mobile browsers. In a veiled reference to its own software, the site also says that the company's philosophy is that "enhanced speed and all the rich media of the web can be together in one browser". Although the site said that there is nothing to announce now, those interested should stay tuned for news and suggested monitoring Skyfire on Facebook and Twitter.

I feel like Opera was kind of a fluke...Opera is a somewhat well known web browser and to reject them would have most certainly brought a lot of bad press to Apple...even more so than a bunch of no-named developers (no insult of course, just nothing compared to Opera). Plus, Opera had a good reason to get their browser approved...Opera is a much better solution on AT&T's EDGE service than Safari (I finally tried it on EDGE and greatly impressed). But what will other browsers do that Safari can't? If that question isn't answered, I don't see how they will be approved for the App store. And I am not all that convinced that the approval of Opera Mini is a result of Apple loosening their criteria. But we shall see...
