Opera Software have announced plans to upgrade its mobile web browsing software by developing Opera 9 for mobile phones in all major platforms.
The company says it will incorporate the latest in PC browsing features such as Widgets and Intelligent Zoom to its upcoming Opera Mobile edition.
Opera 9 on mobile phones promises to add a new dimension to web navigation. Users will be able to seamlessly alternate between viewing modes to get a birds-eye perspective or dive into the content they want. Users have the choice to see an overview of a Web page or adapting the page to the width of the screen. As first seen with the Opera browser for Wii, Intelligent Zoom allows users to then zoom in directly to a selected area.
Widgets are small Web applications running outside of the browser and allowing users, manufacturers and operators to create and personalize services derived from Web content such as weather and traffic information, news and e-mail. Widgets offer Web applications that are instantly accessible on the phone without having to launch the Web browser, presenting dynamic and engaging content directly to users.
