Opera Mini, the most popular mobile browser in the world, offers full-fledged tabbed browsing, password management, bookmarks, speed dial, synchronization and more on almost any phone. Opera Mini routes all data through its servers where it is processed and compressed before being sent to the handset. This makes Opera Mini significantly faster than most other mobile browsers on slower networks. However, this also means that, unlike Opera Mobile, Opera Mini isn’t able to render rich web content that heavily utilizes AJAX and other modern technologies. Opera Mobile is designed for modern-day smartphones and delivers a truly PC like web browsing experience. It is already available for Symbian and should be released for Android within the next couple of days.
You can download the latest build of Opera Mini from the respective app repositories (Ovi Store for Symbian and Market for Android) or by simply browsing to m.opera.com on your mobile phone.
