Windows Phones get to play Opera too

Finally, more than three tabs at a time

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

The new version of Opera Mobile, available for Symbian since the beginning of the month, is now available for Windows Phones too.

Opera Mobile 10 is still officially a beta release, but seems stable enough and the addition of Turbo alone makes the download worthwhile. A better interface and the ability to use more than three tabs makes the whole experience more pleasant.

Opera Mobile on Windows Phone

Five Tabs, count 'em, and room for more too

Turbo mode (which uses Opera's servers to compress content) is disabled by default, but once activated it makes a palpable difference to the speed of use which is already superior to prior versions.

Supporting Windows Mobile means supporting a much wider range of hardware, and we found that some of our shortcut buttons stopped working while Opera was running. The new browser does, however, work superbly with the RedFly (offering a genuinely desktop-like experience) - though we did manage to crash it once or twice.

But in general Opera continues to demonstrate that it's not just the iPhone that can make mobile browsing comparable to the desktop equivalent, and it's free too. ®
