Following up on the Android release of Opera Mobile 4 just over a year ago, Opera has just launched Opera Mini 5 for Android into public beta.
The jump from version 4 to version 5 is pretty huge, introducing a handful of features that Opera says “makes your mobile browsing experience as close as it can be to your desktop experience.”
Since the release of Opera Mini 5 beta 1, we’ve been working hard to implement new, exciting features, and fix a lot of bugs. Many of those bugs were reported by you, our users, and we thank you for that.
To download, go to m.opera.com/next, but please note that phone support for the new version may vary. It has, however, improved quite a bit from Opera Mini 5 beta 1.
Key new features:
- Download manager
- Opera Link, to keep Opera Mini synchronized
- Progressive loading
- And of course a lot of bug fixes
