Opera Mini 5.1 goes native on Nokia S60

Beta browser taps cut-and-paste, email

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Opera has beta-ed a native Symbian incarnation of its low-bandwidth Opera Mini browser. Previously, Opera Mini for Symbian was a Java app.

The Norwegian browser maker says its native Opera Mini 5.1 beta offers better start-up times and better page-load and scrolling performance, "especially on older devices." It also taps straight into the Nokia S60's native copy and paste and its native email client.

According to Opera, the browser can now run on 3,000 different phone models.

Opera Mini taps into Opera proxy servers that intercept and compress webpages before sending them down to phones. This speeds download times, making the browser suitable for slower web connections and smaller amounts of memory.

It also means that Mini doesn't interpret code, so you can now find it in the Apple App Store as well. And a stable native version of Mini 5.1 can be found in the Android app market as well.
