    Opera got kicked by Apple from AppStore


    Well in personally not surprised, Apple already said no to Firefox and an alternative mail client.

    It was pretty obvious that it was going to get rejected by Apple

    I am very unhappy. Opera mobile is available for every other mobile platform, and Apple are pathetic. Good day.

    I am not shocked that they did this but this is Apple. Of course they would not want competition. But I was looking forward to a browser on my iPod touch...

    Now only if one of the Opera engineers...could just let that Opera application *******...loose on the internet...

    The creators wasted their time. The agreement you have to agree to when signing up for the developer program (ie, downloading the SDK) clearly states that your applications can not process code. That means html. In other words, you will never see another browser of any kind unless Apple relents in their policies.
