    I think it is unfair not to allow any completely independent third party web browsers that are not Dependant on Safari browser. There are many websites which are not customized for iPhone and Safari crashes when trying to browse them on my iPhone (including this website). I have tried some other web browsers which are MyFox (from Cydia) and Google's app, they both crashes with these websites too and this is expected as they are Dependant on Safari browser. I want to see a unique Opera, Firefox & even Google Chrome browsers for iPhone soon because I hope that they will be more stable with all websites and not going to crash frequently like Safari. They may come with their own built-in plugins like Flash player which is a huge advantage to the iPhone community.
