This post is pretty old! Opinions and technical information in it are almost certainly oudated. Commands and configurations will probably not work. Consider the age of the content before putting any of it into practice.
Safari is about as good as it is on the desktop, which is to say, good-looking and fast. It uses a newer WebCore than current OmniWeb does, so it shows the search form (top-right if you’re reading this on my site) correctly with the fat black border.
While I can’t touchtype as fast as the duder in Apple’s video can yet, I am seeing how it’d be possible. The keyboard software is pretty great outside of password boxes or URL fields.
I’m a huge map nerd and I approve of the Maps application.

No copy-paste. This translates to no flickr links in this post until I fix it on a real computer.
The calculator is only a 4-function like Calculator.wdgt that came with 10.4. No computer nerd features :(
Safari does something different with font sizes than desktop browsers re: points vs. pixels vs. ems. A page that looks consistent on OmniWeb might have varying sizes on iPhone.
Scrolling the edit cursor around big text fields is quite annoying, at least in the widescreen browser.
