Popular pocket web browser, Opera Mobile has finally been released for Android phones. The app allows you to easily traverse the web through a stylish user interface. Opera Mobile supports helpful navigation aids such as multiple tabs, a start page to put up to nine shortcuts, and a comfortable pinch-to-zoom tool.
If you’ve used Opera Mini before on your Android then you’ll already be familiar with the features and functionality of Opera Mobile, because it is virtually the same application. The key difference between the two is that Mini uses page compression to load sites more quickly, whereas Mobile renders HTML fully as nature intended. This means that load times are slower in Opera Mobile, but the graphics look much crisper. Opera Mobile does come with Opera Turbo, however, which allows you to turn page compression on if you want.
Opera Mobile matches up pretty well against other Android web browsers. Personally, though, I reckon Dolphin Browser HD is still the best of the bunch, given its vast feature set and support for add-ons. Go check out my review of Opera Mobile for Android and give the program a try for yourself.
