If you've been using Opera Mini on your mobile you'll know all about the benefits its brings. If not, you really should be using it. It's the best way to get the most out of your mobile, making surfing the internet fast, secure and easy, plus you can use photo-sharing applications and subscribe to RSS news feeds from your favourite websites or blogs. And now Opera Mini promises to be even better with this new Beta version.

It still has a fast and free internet connection and when you open a webpage Opera Mini will give you a full-screen view and then suggest where to zoom in to begin reading. Of course you can choose yourself if you are looking for something specific. Importantly the software changes the size of the text so you can get as much information on your screen while still being able to read it. This optimization of pages ensures easy reading. You can even flip the screen to landscape mode to get a better view. And you can bookmark in the usual way. One simple feature I liked was the Opera Mini mouse which allows easy scrolling, an addition that many mobile packages are sorely lacking.

Impress your friends and wow yourself with Opera Mini 4 beta as you quickly navigate the entire Internet on the world's only super fast and free mobile phone browser. Access any site at any time, anywhere, and on almost any phone.

    It might be wonderful, but it requires an IBM Java VM, which is no longer available. Any chance you can recompile it to... More.
