Opera Software released Opera Mini 4 beta, codenamed Dimension, the newest version of Opera’s Web browser for mobile phones.
The new overview mode empowers people to browse Web sites, just like they do on their PC. Opera Mini 4 beta features a new zoom, based on the original Opera feature introduced for Nintendo Wii. When zooming, Opera Mini dives into the page and then snaps to the content so scrolling is smooth while accessing the desired content immediately. According to the Norwegian company, Opera Mini 4 beta is more than twice as fast as any other mobile browser.
“We are excited to share the beta with the fast-growing community of Opera Mini users,” said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera. “The feedback from the beta users will go to make Opera Mini even better and we thank the community for their efforts. Opera Mini has succeeded only due to the support of the people who have made it the most popular mobile browser available today.”
“As the first mobile browser to gain mass popularity, Opera Mini has proven people want access to all their favorite Internet services and sites on their mobile phone,” said Lee Ott, director of mobile products, Yahoo!. “As Opera’s exclusive mobile search partner, our revolutionary Yahoo! oneSearch service gives their millions of consumers worldwide access to the better search results and instant answers they want on their mobile phone.”
More than 15 million people have browsed more than 5 billion pages with Opera Mini since its worldwide debut in 2006. The current version of Opera Mini 3.1 is available free of charge.
