    Just get Opera Mini, and use Safari in the background.

    Why exactly do you need that? Because otherwise I may have an alternative

    Why not just open another page in Safari?

    Im running 2 Facebook.app
    To do this, copy the ipa file open Info.plist file of .app folder n replace the values of the string CFBundleIdentifier n if u want different icon label then change the value of CFBundleDisplayName.

    So now u should have 2 ipa files, 1 with default Info.plist n other with modified. Make sure thry r named differently n add to itunes n sync

    ^that doesn't work...

    Only one of the apps will open because the files aren't sym linked to the actual app and you can't run two instances of the same app, therefore the only way is to symlink which just makes a shortcut, not a new app
