Opera 5 was one heck of a mobile browser that included great syncing features and more, and the latest release from Opera is quite the improvement. The latest browser from Opera comes with features the previous was criticized for not including, and it even did it better than others. The new features includes the much anticipated pinch to zoom capability, the much appreciated hardware optimization, and Opera even went an extra step to make it optimized for the new line of tablets that has been hitting the shelves.

The new browser has been released and is now available for Android along with other not so important OS’s.

Below is some information that might be of interest to you:


The Opera Mini browser uses Opera’s servers to shake, rattle and roll webpages down to a tenth of their original size before sending them to your phone. Because the data transferred is smaller, pages arrive faster than the speed of sound. On a pay-as-you-go plan, the Opera Mini browser dramatically cuts the price you pay, because the data you use is greatly reduced. The Opera Mini browser makes any device Internet savvy.
The Opera Mobile browser gives you the whole of the moon on smartphones and tablets. The strange magic of HTML5? Check. Full, high fidelity web browsing? Check. Sharing the same Opera Presto browser engine found in Opera’s desktop browser, the Opera Mobile browser is the premier option for fast, powerful browsing when on unlimited Internet data plans or Wi-Fi.
Smooth operator: Improved scrolling, panning and zooming make the Opera Mini and Opera Mobile browsers the sweetest thing to hit mobile devices since the Opera Mini 5 browser.


Pinch-to-zoom: Feel free to twist and shout now that Opera’s features include true pinch-to-zoom on devices that support pinch.


Sharing: When you find something, let it be ... shared. The new versions feature a share button, so you can easily post, Tweet (twiddly-diddly-deet), or just shout it out loud on Facebook, vKontakte or My Opera.
Now also optimized for tablets: Is it any wonder? Opera for tablets brings smooth browsing to your tablet PC with a brand new interface that is sure to rock you like a hurricane.
