Opera Mobile

Opera just released version 10 beta of it's Opera Mobile product for smartphones. It looks a lot like the Opera Mini 5 BETA but hopefully it will work better than this one.

It's supposed to be fast, intuitive, to support tabbed browsing and speed dial (like Opera Desktop does).

The new design also comes with a set of new features like the Speed Dial, bookmarking and tabbed browsing elements Opera desktop browser users have long grown accustomed to as well as a handy password manager.

Opera Software claims the latest build of the smartphone browser product is notably faster than the previous beta release (9.7) and is even twice as speedy when downloading or zooming in on pages. Apart from the performance upgrade, Opera Mobile 10 also sports full integration of Opera Turbo, the company’s server-side compression technology that makes loading Web pages from mobile devices faster and cheaper.

For now, the application is FREE and can be downloaded from HERE.
