[citation][nom]werxen[/nom]Holy crap... that not only kills safari but kills every other browser out there too. I want to see it support some login pages though...[/citation]
That's the problem I always had with Opera. Everything goes great until you try to log in to Bank of America or some other financial site and get hit with a not supported browser prompt. Though it was much worse a few years ago when only IE was supported at many of these sites.
Everytime I would log on to Paypal or Wachovia I would have problems with opera for my helio Ocean. For paypal it would deactivate my paypal account and say that suspicious activity has been noticed and that I have to go through the security questions and set up a new password. For wachovia a few days after I upgraded to the newest version of Opera Wachovia said they would not be supporting Opera any longer and that I cant access my banking via opera in 2/3 days. I dont really care their gonna cancel the Helio Ocean in May since Sprint Purchased Virgin Mobile Which Purchased Helio. On my PC Opera is Faster than the Safari and IE8.

Many banks and sites work fine with Opera, Firefox, etc. Only a few JERK sites force that or stupid sites using old MS servers, who knows. But as of now, even Microsoft.com has to work nice with non IE servers (about time). Now some MS-Specific editing sites for web-sites, custom software may lock down to IE and/or FireFox.
As long as IE continues to lose market share (and it should - its a crappy butt-ugly browser) what few hold-out sites should get their act together.
Opera just kicked apple to the curb. I wouldn't be surprised if they launched their own smartphone. Hell, I'd buy one. I only use the damn safari browser because it was "bundled" with the iphone. I should totally sue apple for forcing me to use safari. ballet box anyone?
It seems plausible that a third party browser could include flash and it would just be installed during the regular app installation. Ignoring the fact that Apple would never allow another browser on the app store am I wrong in thinking it is possible to package flash in the browser and have them both download and install at the same time?
