Video Exclusive: Opera Claims iPhone Browser Speed Crown Is "5X Faster" Than Safari

In an interview at CES, Opera’s Jeremy Forrester tells Beet.TV that the popularity of the browser on iPhone has come from its speed which is “four-to-five times faster than the native” (Mobile Safari) browser on Edge and 3-G networks.

Wednesday’s announcement that Sony would add the Opera browser its Internet-ready televisions sets and Blu-ray players could well be a significant development in establishing an industry standard.
