Calif. – Apple (NASD: AAPL) has approved
Opera’s Mini Web browser for use on its iPhone and iPod touch, which will
compete with the company’s own built-in Safari browser for users. Wired.com
notes that the browser’s added speed come from loading "optimized,
compressed" versions of Web pages from Opera’s own servers, which are
"encoded in a special markup language and compressed to as little as 10
percent of the original data footprint."
