Opera Mini 5 Beta Available For Android

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
