    Opera is actually a very good web browser at least on computers.

    The Firefox Concept looked interesting, but for now, Safari works.

    The AppStore doesn't allow Safari competitors anyway...

    ...In which case they wouldn't, since absolutely none are allowed. Under any circumstances. Why would Apple allow a competing browser like Firefox to work on the iPhone? So they could lose Safari users?
