Opera Software has just pushed through the first update to Opera Mini for iPhone. Opera Mini 5.0.1 is a mainly a bug fix release, which addresses several issues reported by users, including the “freeze at start-up” issue. It also adds support for Hungarian, besides adding several stability fixes.
Earlier this month, Opera Mini for iPhone was approved by Apple. It quickly went on to become one of the most popular free apps in the App Store. In fact, Opera Mini managed to amass one million downloads on day one itself.
Opera Mini for iPhone features full tabbed browsing, search engine integration, Opera Link (data synchronization), visual speed dial, password manager, find-in-page and session restore. However, the biggest draw of Opera Mini is speed. All webpages are routed through Opera’s servers where they are rendered and compressed. This can provide a significant speed boost on slower networks, besides reducing your bandwidth bill.
Opera Mini 5.0.1 can be downloaded from the Apple App Store.
