Opera has released Opera Mini 4, the newest version of Opera's mobile browsing software. Opera Mini 4 offers a desktop overview mode, so users see the page exactly as it appears on their computers.
People can then use the Opera Zoom to fly into the page and access the select content. Or they can select Opera's Small Screen Rendering to eliminate horizontal scrolling.
Opera Mini 4 is a free download, over the air. Data charges will still apply.
Opera Mini brings the full Web, your favorite Web sites and services, to almost every mobile phone. Opera Mini also automatically reduces the size of the transferred pages, so Web sites load faster while reducing the cost of surfing.
This new version also supports Opera Link, a new platform for synchronising the user's preferences and information across any device that runs an Opera browser - or any browser that can access Opera's social network, My Opera. Opera Link instantly synchronises bookmarks and Opera Speed Dial so that the information goes wherever users go.
"Two years ago, we introduced Opera Mini to the world because we wanted to bring the Web to users everywhere. Today, Opera Mini is the world’s most popular mobile browser", says Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera. "As a result, the mobile Web is now a mass phenomenon. Opera Mini 4 raises the bar for user-friendly access to the Web on any mobile phone, anywhere in the world."
We've had a lot of help from the community to get us ready to release Opera Mini 4 to the world," says Oleg Tukh, product manager for Opera Mini. "Now that it's ready and free to download, anyone can discover the beauty of Opera Mini and enjoy the best Web experience available on almost any regular mobile phone. We're excited to share this with everyone."
The company says Opera Mini is the world's most popular mobile Web browser, with 26 million cumulative users viewing more than one billion Web pages per month. Opera Mini has seen user growth skyrocket in the past 12 months as more of the world's population browses the Web with mobile devices.
