Get a fast, cost-efficient Web browsing experience. Use our powerful servers to compress data by up to 90% before sending it to your iPhone, so page-loads are lightning fast. Opera Mini is a breeze to use, and can synchronize data between your phone and computer.
Some great features of Opera Mini:
-Speed Dial gets you to your favorite Web sites with a single tap.
-An address field with auto-completion means you type less.
-Tabs allow for multitasking with several Web pages.
-Bookmarks can be easily managed and accessed.
I will give it a shot, but I think that an iPhone optimized application that would download the threads in the background would be inherently faster (looka t NY Times and Huff Post iPhone apps). I guess that the site that handles Epic's backend operates other online communities, so maybe they can develop an iPhone app and then just window-dress it for different sites.
