Opera Mini Version 4.0 Released
Opera Software has released the first non beta version of Opera Mini v4. Opera Mini 4 is a complete redesign of its browser with a new desktop overview mode that allows people to browse their favorite web sites, just like they would on a PC. Some of the features added in new version include landscape mode for viewing sites in a widescreen format on compatible devices, a virtual mouse mode for easier scrolling and enhanced small screen rendering. A full list of new additions can be found here. It also retains its classic features of a desktop like presentation with smooth scrolling and zooming and its file size reducing page compression for faster page loads.
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."
Opera Mini is now one of the world's most popular mobile Web browsers, 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.
