Opera Mini de-betas on Android

Default browser, anyone?

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Opera has taken the beta tag off the Android incarnation of its low-bandwidth mobile browser, offering an Opera Mini 5.1 that includes a few small improvements over the 5.0 beta.

Yes, they've jumped straight from a 5.0 beta to 5.1

This brings the Android version in line with last week's update for various other platforms. The new Opera Mini 5.1 for Android supports 96 languages, and you now have the option of using it as your default browser.

Opera also say the new version offers "better page layout and font rendering" on the newer, larger Android devices, as well as improved kinetic scrolling. Full zoom support is not yet available. You can completely zoom in and completely zoom out but there's no in-between.

Opera Mini taps into Opera's proxy servers that intercept and compress webpages before sending them down to the client. This speeds download times, making the browser suitable for slower web connections and lower amounts of memory. This also means that Mini doesn't interpret code, so you can now find it in the Apple App Store as well.

You can find Opera Mini in the Android Market or get it here. ®
