Also bear in mind that in the case of Opera Mini the page is parsed  
and rendered on a server: the constraints of the hardware on which it  
is running are irrelevant. There are cases where the limitations of  
the hardware (be it memory or storage space or something else  
entirely) only allow for a single parser.
