Opera Mini 5 Beta released for Google Android
Opera Software has launched the beta of their latest edition of Opera Mini for the Google Android platform.
Opera Mini 5 Beta is now available as a free download on the Android Market.
This edition was much awaited and it finally makes the browser useful on the Android platform.
Like the other editions, it also relies on Opera Turbo servers to compress the data which is rendered on the device.
It also brings in some new features like support for speed dial and tabs.
We played around with it on our Google Nexus One and we liked what we saw.
It does not render all the websites perfectly but the speed makes up for it. It has two modes for you to select. The mobile mode renders the web pages to fit on your mobile display. The regular mode tries to render the web pages like they do on a desktop.
