Make Opera Mini the Default Browser in Android with Opera Bridge

Opera Mini 5 is a great little mobile browser. It may not have pinch and zoom or AJAX support, but it more than makes up for these shortcomings through its breezy page loading and unique feature list. Unfortunately, Opera Mini doesn’t allow you to set it as the default system browser. As a result, all links are opened using the in-built browser, instead of Opera Mini.


Fortunately, there is a quick and hassle free way to fix this issue.

  • Once you have downloaded and installed Opera Mini 5, head over to the Android Market and download OperaBridge.
  • Now, hunt down any web link and click on it. You should get a window saying Complete action using.
  • Select the Use by default for this actionoption.
  • Select OperaBridge.

That’s all folks. Now, all hyperlinks should be opened in Opera Mini by default.
