While there is a very strong competition between mobile browsers in the market, Opera seems to be a clear winner for now. Previously, we had covered the Opera mobile in detail. We have also covered the much awaited “Fennec” browser from Mozilla Firefox, which seems to be a strong competitor to Opera for now.
