As I committed in my previous post I am bringing you here Opera’s Answer to Android’s Browsers. With this browser Opera trying to win back the lost market share from Android. Let us go through the features of Opera Mini 7:-
1. Improved Hardware acceleration(Open GLES Hardware acceleration) which enhance smooth Handling and faster browsing experience.
2. Speed Dial screen has been updated and you are allowed to select the number of buttons you see there. In the previous version the speed dial was set to show 9 of your bookmarks which cannot be changed. Now speed dial or book mark as many as you like.
3. Data Compression allows you to save up to 90% of your data traffic (WOW! that saves quiet big amount of my browsing bill). This add on benefit has happened because of by downsizing the page size and superfast page loading by page compression technique ultimately enhancing the user experience.
4. Many Bugs are fixed with this release, some Performance Tweaks and compatibility improvements.
5. Supports NFC Beam Feature. it works on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher versions.
It Can be downloaded from Google Play store. Many quirky updates by Opera to combat in the market of mobile browsers. For Android Users the above said updated version can also be downloaded by visiting m.opera.com from your android browser. The option which says installing non market apps should be enabled on your phone.
I feel that opera mini is the best mobile browsers across all class of mobile phones (from entry level phones to smart phones like IPhone, Android and works best in BlackBerry). Please comment your views and share experience with Opera Mini Browsers and with other similar mobile browsers to enhance the coverage of this post. You can drop me an email on email Id firstname.lastname@example.org with your queries, concerns and suggestions and I will surely revert you with my findings as soon as possible.
