Opera Mini Phone Web Browser
Opera has officially launched the best phone web browser worldwidely. I’ve been using it since last summer.
Here are the things that separate Opera Mini out from other applications. Opera Mini is small and easy to download and install. Beside that Opera has made the process simple by providing direct access to download, no registration or multiple page view needed. Opera Mini’s speed of downloading is incredible. It makes GPRS seem a lot faster. It compresses and down-sizes of picture on the server but not every web page will looks perfect. The header image on my blog doesn’t show up.
I think Opera has done an amazing job. I expect huge things from this. I bet you could easily base a new web-based business around this browser. Opera Mini is just about the best browser I’ve ever seen on mobile phone.
