Opera Mobile 9.7 beta lands

ET phone home

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Opera released the beta version of its latest Windows-only mobile browser yesterday.

The Norwegian browser maker said new features in Opera Mobile 9.7 include faster surfing using the firm’s Opera Turbo technology.

Opera claimed data transfer was up to 25 per cent faster compared to older versions of the software.

The latest version comes loaded with the same browsing engine used on Opera’s desktop browser - Opera Presto 2.2.

Additionally, the company has added Opera Widgets to the mobile browser.

“There are other mobile browsers on the market that claim to be faster and more website-compatible on Windows-based phones, but I challenge users to take Opera Mobile for a test drive and discover a new standard for speed and compatibility,” urged Opera CEO Jon von Tetzchner.

“Opera Mobile 9.7 leaves other ‘sluggish’ and ‘painfully slow’ browsers in the dust,” he claimed. ®
