Opera Mobile Store, powered by Appia, goes live for Mobile and Mini

It's not the first browser to get its own app store, but the Opera Mobile Store is... well, another app store. The Store has just launched and is powered by Appia, which offers a white-label app store system for carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon, as well as some top-tier handset manufacturers. The Store will appear on Opera Mobile and Opera Mini Speed Dial pages and give users...

Opera and Qualcomm partner to bring better Web browsing to millions on Brew

Opera has announced yet another integration deal with a major OEM. This time, it's with chip maker Qualcomm which will begin shipping the Opera Mobile 10 and Opera Mini 5 browsers as part of its Brew platform for mobile phones. Qualcomm calls the partnership "a perfect match, saying "With its cross-platform technology, renowned performance, superior standards compliance and small size, Opera gives...

Opera now used by over 100 million mobile surfers, dominates iOS browser

Opera, now with a combined total of over 100 million Mini and Mobile users, dominates the mobile browser market. While Mobile has a very valiant 15 million users, it is Opera Mini with over 90 million users and 52 billion page views in January 2011 that really steals the show. Those figures don't include phones that come with Opera pre-installed, incidentally. The maths are more complicated...

Opera Mobile 10.1 beta for Android emerges, much the same as Opera Mini

Late last night Opera released version 10.1 of its browser for Android. It's a beta build, and don't be fooled by the version number: it's obviously meant to show that this is the desktop browser, but ported to your phone -- just like Firefox 4 Mobile. If you've used Opera Mini, the light-weight, designed-for-dumbphones browser, Opera Mobile will feel very familiar to you. Mobile keeps the...

Opera Mini 5.1 beta for S60 brings copy and paste, native email, and speed

This week, Opera let loose a new beta of their latest and greatest proxy-based browser for S60-powered smartphones. Essentially giving any Nokia S60 phone a fast and fairly decent browsing experience, Opera Mini 5.1 beta now supports the platform's native copy and paste feature, and it can call up the native email client. This doesn't sound like a lot, but in usability stakes, the ability to copy...

Hands on with Skyfire, the 'rich media' (i.e. Flash video) Android Web browser

A lot has been said about the Skyfire mobile Web browser -- and apparently over half a million people have downloaded it! -- but is it actually any good? Sure it offers Flash video playback, but with a built-in YouTube app that ships with almost every new smartphone, is it really necessary to install a separate browser just to watch videos? While 500,000 downloads isn't indicative of 500,000...

Opera Mini 5.1 for Android released, put to the test against desktop Chrome (video)

Opera Mini 5.1 for Android has been released -- visit m.opera.com, or simply search for 'Opera' on Android Market. This is only a minor patch, but it should be both faster and easy to use. Mini can now also be set as your default browser -- about time! Anyway, without any real way to benchmark Opera Mini 5 against other mobile browsers, I decided to pit it against a desktop browser -- Chrome...

Skyfire announces its intention to follow Opera Mini on Apple iPhone devices; will bring Flash and Silverlight support?

Skyfire, bolstered by the approval of Opera Mini on the iPhone App Store yesterday, is now looking to bring its super-powered web browser to the 'iDevices'. Under the ingratiating veil of congratulating both Apple and Opera for their good work, Skyfire's CEO Jeff Glueck isrubbing his hands with delight: you see, Skyfire, unlike Opera Mini, also supports Flash and Silverlight. Skyfire is one...

Apple approves Opera Mini browser for iPhone

After a week of being bashed for anti-competitive behavior, Apple pulled a surprise move and approved Opera Mini for iPhone on Monday night. The Opera browser competes directly with Apple's own default Safari browser, and there was plenty of speculation that Apple would play the old "duplicates existing functionality" card. Instead, Steve Jobs and Co. went for the brownie points. Opera Mini may...

The fate of Opera Mini for iPhone is in Apple's hands now

Well, it's finally happened: a major browser that could give Apple's Safari a run for its money has been submitted to the iTunes App Store. Opera Mini has performed well in demos, and looks pretty nice, to boot -- check out the video after the jump to see it in action on an iPhone -- but I don't know if it's enough of a threat to Safari for Apple to reject. At any rate, Opera has posted an...

Opera Mini 5 and Opera Mobile 10 emerge from beta

Opera's latest mobile browsers are all grown up and ready to leave beta! Opera Mini 5 is good to go on your BlackBerry or other Java-ready phone, and Opera Mobile 10 is out for Symbian and Windows Mobile devices. Opera Mini for Android and WinMo are still in beta, and there's no sign of that rumored Opera Mini for iPhone yet. However, these latest stable versions of Opera's pocket-sized browser...

DLS @ SXSW - Opera (and my impression of Opera Mini on the iPhone)

While we can't show you video of the app for iPhone known as Opera Mini, I did get a chance to briefly play around with it. The SXSW trade show floor has terrible WiFi (at times), and as a result, I think the speed might have been affected. That said, in some cases I found the Opera Mini app to be a faster browser than mobile Safari. Truthfully, Opera's 90% compression of content on sites...

Opera Mini 5 enters Beta

Following on from their teaser at the weekend, Opera have now released a Beta of version 5 of their Opera Mini Java based web browser. Touted as the 'best and easiest way to get connected on your mobile phone', the new release adds tabbed browsing, speed dial, an enhanced user interface for both touch and keypad based devices and an integrated password manager, as well as a considerable...

Opera browser gets itself in Gear(s)

The cult favorite Opera Browser has added support for Google Gears to its desktop and mobile browsers. Google Gears is the product that allows you to seamlessly (hopefully) integrate your web experience and your desktop experience by storing information on your computer so that you don't have to wait for your slow funky dial up to grind its own gears. Basically, it's bringing the web data to you....
