No no no no no. I totally disagree with the principle of a web browser butchering content to fit on to the small screen (ie, Opera's ability to dismantle tables into a narrow layout). Mozilla on PPC simply needs to correctly handle CSS media types for handheld devices. Scrollbars and CSS handles the rest.
