Productivity - A more refined browser for a great web experience
Opera has always delivered a first-class web experience to mobile phones, and our latest mobile browsers bring great enhancements that make the Opera Mini and Opera Mobile browsers the best choice for thousands of devices.
The clean, simple and elegant user experience Opera is known for has now been enhanced, with support for the latest technology. Opera's mobile browsers display complete webpages, just like on your computer.
Switching between open webpages is a snap with tabs, and Speed Dial launches your favorite websites with a single click. Add as many Speed Dial entries as you want – there's no limit!
If you don't have a smartphone, you can still enjoy many web-enhanced features on your phone with Opera's mobile browsers, including a new Smart Page that's connected to your social networks. See all the latest updates from your friends and contacts, right from the home screen of your phone. You’ll also get breaking news, weather forecasts, sports, entertainment and more.
With Opera Mini and Opera Mobile you’ll navigate with ease on both touchscreen and keypad devices. The browser automatically switches between portrait and landscape mode and also lets you adjust text for easier reading.
The latest versions of Opera Mini and Opera Mobile get an extra boost of speed and power. Even on sites with secure encryption or lots of graphics, pages load with a snap and scroll smoothly. You'll also be able to play the next generation of games on your mobile device, thanks to WebGL hardware acceleration in Opera Mobile. Not only are the controls fast and responsive, but colors and textures are rich and true to life too. Thanks to Opera, you can have a premium web experience no matter what phone or mobile device you use.
Browse more, wait less
The web has never been so fast on your phone. Our streamlined rendering engine and server-side compression allows Opera Mini and Opera Mobile to load webpages much more quickly than other mobile phone browsers. Features such as the address bar, shortcut keys and touchscreen control save you time and effort when performing basic tasks, such as entering addresses or scrolling rapidly through pages.
Save money on data charges
Opera's mobile browsers are the smart choice for browsing on expensive wireless data plans. Using Opera Mini or Opera Mobile to browse the web with your mobile phone can save you money on your phone bills, by reducing your data usage substantially. Opera Mini uses only a tenth of the bandwidth of other browsers, compressing webpages by up to 90%. With Opera Mobile, turning on Opera Turbo compresses data by up to 80%, or leave Opera Turbo off to get full website data, as you would on a PC.
User experience - Instant access to your favorite websites
See your top websites visually laid out on your screen in Speed Dial, and load each of them with a quick tap. It is easy to add your preferred pages to Speed Dial, and you even can synchronize them with your desktop, using Opera Link.
Feel at ease on any device
The user interface has been designed for both touchscreen and keypad-style mobile phones. Scroll and pan at warp speed with your keypad or flick the touchscreen to use kinetic scrolling for long pages.
Multitask with tabs
Keep several pages open at the same time and easily switch between them using tabs — just as you would on your desktop computer. On touchscreen devices, visual tabs even allow you to see a preview of the open pages you can select.
Enter addresses in a flash
Effortlessly enter addresses thanks to our sophisticated URL auto-completion. The Opera mobile browsers intelligently guess what URL you are typing in the address field, allowing you to start loading that site after entering only a few letters. Your bookmarks and previously visited addresses also appear in a list as you type, so you can select the one you want.
Type without losing focus
Entering text into your browser with a touchscreen phone just got easier. On phones where the default touchscreen keyboard provides a less-than-optimal user experience, you can use the virtual keyboard to type and edit information without ever leaving the page you are viewing.
Your view where you need it
When moving around large, complex webpages, the Opera mobile browsers will stop just where they need to, snapping the view to the column you want to read.
Make the most of your screen
Take advantage of every pixel that your phone’s screen has to offer with full-screen mode. The address bar and toolbars disappear until they are needed, allowing you to see more of the page you are viewing.
Get a better view
Opera Mini and Opera Mobile smartly fit webpages to your screen, showing an overview of the site. To get a close-up view and begin reading, just tap the screen or press a button to zoom in exactly where you want to look. On supported devices, you can also smoothly pinch-to-zoom to get the precise view you want.
Features - Your data, wherever you need it
Backup your bookmarks, Speed Dials, and search engines to My Opera, and keep them synchronized between different phones or with the Opera browser on your desktop computers or laptops. With Opera Link, you can take your favorite websites with you, wherever you go.
Share the best of the Web
When you come across a page that you want to show to the world, just tap the “Share” icon from the menu. Then, choose from social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, vKontakte and more to share a link in a snap.
See what you are looking for
Finding what you are looking for in text-heavy pages on your phone has never been as easy. As you type, the Opera mobile browsers find your search term and highlight all occurrences in the page, allowing you to cycle through them.
Manage your downloads
The Downloads feature is the most advanced download manager available for mobile phones, built right in to the browser. Start downloading files and keep track of their progress from Downloads. You can pause downloads, when necessary, and resume them when it is convenient.
Easy access to your bookmarks
Save, edit and organize bookmarks into folders. Sophisticated bookmark management lets you keep track of many sites. Enabling Opera Link can even keep bookmarks synchronized across Opera installations on other devices, such as on your computer, so you always have your links when you need them.
Go back in time
With the history feature, you can find pages you visited before. Visited pages in your history are grouped by date, so you can easily find a site by the day you have viewed it.
Read a page any time, from anywhere
When you find a page that you would like to keep, use the Save Page feature, and you can access it any time, without having to wait for it to download—even with no internet connection.
