    No trouble really. It was just copy and paste to several browsers on devices I already had in front of me. Took me maybe less than a minute to complete. Anyway, if you're saying that any browser developed using WebKit IS Safari then I guess you're correct :).

    Opera Mini proves you wrong on this one.

    I find the sync function really handy especially when coming from work and prefer not to open up my MBP at home.

    Yeah, you're right (well partially at least). Opera Mini is not really a browser per se. It's more like a cache service. So it's not really a "direct" competition. Personally, I don't trust my data being proxied to me by a 3rd party (it's too risky). Plus it has problems with sites that uses JS which is pretty much every site these days. So with that said, who in their right minds would want to use it?

    Some sites using Chrome still does not load properly. Will stick to Safari for now.

    Not sure if it's just psychological, but I can notice the slowness now compared with safari. Going back to safari, except for sync and other unique features :D
