Opera Software today released Opera Mini 4 beta, codenamed Dimension, the much-awaited sneak preview of the newest version of Opera’s pioneering Web browser for all mobile phones. Opera Mini 4 beta is a complete redesign of the world’s most popular mobile Web browser. The new overview mode empowers people to browse their favorite Web sites, just like they do on their PC. Opera Mini 4 beta is available free from www.operamini.com/beta.
Opera Mini 4 beta also features a new zoom, based on the original Opera feature introduced for Nintendo Wii. When zooming, Opera Mini dives into the page and then snaps to the content so scrolling is smooth while accessing the desired content immediately. Like all Opera products, Opera Mini 4 beta is built for speed. It is more than twice as fast as any other mobile browser.
The application often hangs on my iMate k-Jam. I’ve also noticed that once it hangs, my phone stops receiving calls. The only solution is to perform a hard reboot.
