When used for accessing the internet, Opera Mini does not run the process on the iPhone device but will provides a command to run the application from Opera server.

Opera will perform all process and sends the requested data with high compression. Opera Mini is claimed capable of compressing data up to 90 percent, so this application promising cost savings and fast internet access for iPhone users.
