Opera Mini 4 was just released today, and it is a huge step forward in mobile web browsing. This is one of the few browsers that offers a full view of the website being requested, much like what you would expect from a desktop browser.
One of the other most notable additions to Opera Mini 4 is the Opera Link technology. We wrote about this when it debuted back in October, and since then it has really become a big selling point for the browser. With Opera Link you’re able to access your bookmarks on any mobile device, and also on any Opera 9.5 desktop browser. You never have to leave home without your bookmarks!
Here are some other things you can do with Opera Mini 4:
- View pages in landscape mode.
- Use a virtual mouse to browse websites.
- Find your way around web pages quicker by using your phone’s number keys. Press 2 to go up, 4 to go left, 6 to go right and 8 to go down. Hitting 5 zooms you in and out.
- Take control over your viewing options with a few quick keystrokes. Just hit 1 to open the Context Menu, where you can turn on Small Screen Rendering (Mobile View) or reload the page.
Opera Mini is perfect for all of you who get impatient with the load times of some websites. Opera’s servers pre-process all of your website requests, and compresses the content so that it is displayed faster than any other mobile browser. Naturally this would put a lot of strain on Opera’s servers, but it provides a better end-user experience.
