It is not quite "for Palm" OS but Opera Mini, a version for J2ME, aimed at all those Java-enabled phones that come only with a little WAP browser instead of a full HTML application.

It does work well on Palm though and on Pocket PC (well, any JVM really)... It is fast because it uses a proxy server that compresses a lot of the content, pretty much like Thunderhawk (Windows Mobile). It is a good thing to see some move in the mobile Internet direction, not only walled garden stuff coming from operators.

It has problems - the j2me is definitely built for treos. The grafiti area pops up sometimes and you can't hide it again.
and it crashes on geekzone occasionaly
(but so do many embedded browsers)
haven't successfully posted to a forums from Opera on the palm yet
