    I like the minimalist design. This might just get them to the number three spot. I used Opera Mini for the compression for a few years across three phones, but since Chrome got it, it's Chrome all day errday. Sorry Opera. :(

    Did they release Opera under the name of "Coast" on iOS because it doesn't run on the same engine as on desktop/Android?

    Concluded long ago they were unable to fix their own bloated leaky mess for pc. That started out as minimalist/efficient/fastest and most secure browser.

    Safari is the only browser that has access to the best website (since apple strictly enforces tis). All other browsers use an inferior webkit. Chrome at least ties into the google ecosystem, I wonder what opera is aiming for.
