I remember relying on Opera Mini 5 on my old 9700 for tabbed browsing, since I hated the default BlackBerry browser with a passion. My love for BlackBerry's default browser on my Bold 9780 (WebKit browser) has made me totally forget about Opera Mini...that is, until now!
Opera released an updated version earlier this week of Opera Mini. Opera Mini 6 brings many new features/updated, including:
- A fresh new look – Opera Mini 6 sports a new and improved design, including a new skin, and new zoom and jump buttons for easy touch-navigation.
- Share – Share links directly to major social network sites as you browse, directly from Opera Mini 6.
- YouTube support – Click any Mobile YouTube video to launch it directly on your device’s native media player (if available).
- Improved zoom for touch screens – Pinch-to-zoom is now supported for multitouch devices. Regular touch devices now zoom with a double-tap, or with Opera’s new zoom buttons.
- Tailored to Tablets – We’ve designed a new user interface especially for tablet users.
- Open Link in Background – Read your news uninterrupted and utilize the power of tabs by opening new links in the background.
- Better Font Support – We’ve been working hard to improve the selection and rendering of Asian fonts, including Thai and Arabic
