Regardless of the fact that mobile Safari, which comes baked into iOS by default is an amazing browser in itself, the need for fast web browsers never dies out. Opera is a very prominent player in this market. This super fast web browser has been used by millions of users worldwide on their BlackBerrys, iOS devices, Android devices, J2ME and Symbian devices and now a new update has been rolled out particularly for iOS devices. Opera Mini v6.0.1 is now live for download, in the iTunes App Store.
Keep Opera Mini handy on your iOS device, especially for those unavoidable times you are on a slow crowded network, away from Wi-Fi or when data roaming. Opera’s powerful servers compress data by up to 90% before downloading, so page loads are lightning fast.
Earlier this year in February, the Opera Mini browser for iPad was unveiled at the Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona, Spain. On that day, Lars Boilesen CEO, Opera Software made the following statement:
Our developers have been hard at work building the mobile browser of the future — for both consumers and mobile operators – We want our browser to impact lives in a meaningful way. It’s one reason we use mostly renewable resources to power Opera Mini’s servers. It’s why we make it light, so you don’t have to recharge your battery every few hours. It’s why Opera Mini and Opera Mobile can help operators reduce the bandwidth that clogs their networks. A browser may never change the world, but we’ll never stop trying to.
Needless to say, Opera Mini for iPad was just as hit as its predecessors across a variety of platforms. The company has been hard at work ever since then, and now the new and improved Opera Mini for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch brings even more functionality and improvements.
Opera Mini v6.0.01 comes bearing the following improvements:
- Improved YouTube video integration
- Added single column view
- Added Opera Mobile Store icon to Speed Dial list
- Fixed various font-related issues
- Fixed various stability issues
- General bug fixes and improvement
