I just downloaded it too. Been waiting for it for a loooong time. Great to see that it got accepted!

It seems to be pretty fast, but I am sure that the speed is more noticeable when not on wifi or when on a slow connection.

I downloaded it this morning; very quick :). And a pleasure to use too. I was expecting it to be awful after using Opera on every other mobile platform.

I am surprised Apple approved it!

I wont be surprised if it gets removed within the next couple of days either :p

Too many devices to list
For those of you who are paranoid about privacy, you might want to look into why it's so fast. ;)

I've been waiting for this and while it's still rough around some edges, I am pleased. I've been looking forward to tabs (switching between windows can be quite cumbersome sometimes in MobileSafari) for quite some time and Speed Dial is fantastic. As an Opera user on the desktop, it's nice to start using a browser with the same characteristics and "quirks" on my mobile device.

Ok so I downloaded it this morning and played with it all day ( why cant I get it to post to M-F ?) and I really want to like it ( mostly so vansmith will like me ) but I just don't see it becoming my go to browser. I just don't see the speed / quirk's trade off to be enough to take me away from the Safari I know and love.

Does anybody know how to set it as a default browser? Links in e-mails still open in Safari (obviously) and I can't find any settings to change it.

Have it for my G1. Amazing piece of software, better than the stock browser. WAY better. Although, one thing I do not like is that if I'm closed out of the browser for a while, then re-open, it restarts so I lose any web page I had open before. Oh, and the scrolling is really crazy, jumps a lot.

Over all, I love it!

Yeah, it goes to the CLOUDS to render the page! :D Van LOVES them clouds! :D JK

I was wondering how it was rendering so fast then Van clued me in as always! :D

And to Clay, if you open your Windows and let in some fresh air, you might like it more! :D

Sorry, in a funny mode tonight. On a more serious note, yes, it does bug me it's not rendering on the iphone and on some server, but the speed is really nice.
