I have been using Opera Mini 4.0 on my BlackBerry for months and it’s easily become one of my favorite mobile browsers. It provides a rich browsing experience even given the limitations of the small screen and one-handed operation. It was with great joy I heard from Opera that Opera Mini 4.1 beta is now available and I installed it right away on my BB 8830. The improvements they have made to Opera Mini are impressive and it is an absolute joy to use. You can get Opera Mini 4.1 beta here and you should note that it installs alongside (not replaces) any older version of the browser you might have installed. Here’s a list of the main improvements added to 4.1:
- 50% faster due to server-side processing
- Find in page option
- Download web pages for offline viewing
- URL auto-complete
Don’t miss the video overview that Opera has put together on the linked page above. Well done, Opera!
