    You should use the HTTP header



    HTTP_X_OPERAMINI_PHONE_UA



    which returns



    Apple # iPhone



    Did some more digging and found this page, which seems to offer the most comprehensive set of header checks for "Opera Mini on iPhone":



    HTTP_X_OPERAMINI_PHONE: Apple # iPhone

    HTTP_X_OPERAMINI_FEATURES: advanced, download

    HTTP_X_OPERAMINI_PHONE_UA: Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U ; CPU like Mac OS X; en)

    HTTP_X_OPERAMINI_UA: Opera Mini 5/5.0.0176/hifi/iphone

    Now that it's approved they can start considering doing more integration with the iPhone. Now they know there's actually a reason to do it.



    They seem to have made several efforts to ape iPhone conventions - and even attempt kinetic scrolling.



    But by avoiding Cocoa Touch, these are slightly non-standard, and feel broken. Even cut and paste has been broken. I doubt that re-coding these controls by hand saved them development time.

    Would have been helpful to add that his requires manually adding a bookmarklet.

    So, step 1-2 should be:

    1) In desktop Safari drag link to your bookmark bar and name it Find in Page (or whatever)

    2) Sync bookmarks to iPhone



    But it does work.

    Edit: trying to get the javascript to add as a link in post

    meh.

    Go to this page and drag their link for "Find in this page".

    Uh, that's how Opera Mini is on all platforms.

    I've never use the Opera web browser before, I'm so smitten with Mozilla Firefox.



    Is Opera a good web browser?
