Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Opera has officially released its Opera Mobile 10.1 browser for Symbian, offering Nokia S60 users the "Carakan" JavaScript engine that drives the Norwegians' latest desktop browser.

According to Opera, the new browser outperforms Opera Mobile 10.0 for Symbian by nine times on the Sunspider Javascript benchmark.

Opera has also added geolocation hooks, letting web services provide customized content based on where you are in the world. And naturally, you get familiar Opera tools such as Speed Dial, tabbed browsing, Opera Link, and the company's password manager – not to mention the option of flipping on Opera Turbo, which uses proxies to compress wbesites before they're sent down to the phone.

The new browser runs on smartphones based on Symbian^3 and the Symbian S60 third and fifth editions. You can download it at m.opera.com.

Meanwhile, the Norwegians have announced that their other mobile browse – Opera Mini, which built around Opera Turbo – now has over 76.3 million users, a 7.1 per cent increase from September 2010 and a 92 per cent increase from October 2009. Last month, Opera Mini users viewed over 41.6 billion pages, a 12.6 per cent increase from September 2010 and a 142 per cent increase from October 2009.

The web's most valuable secret continues to grow. ®
