Editors' review

We don't usually review beta products, but we'll make an exception for the quite stable Opera Mini 5 beta, a browser alternative for Android phones. Almost identical to the final version of Opera Mini 5 for Java phones, this beta browser combines an eye-catching design with speedy browsing and useful features like Speed Dial: shortcut icons on the home page that open favorite sites. There's also Opera Link, which syncs bookmarks and history with your other Opera browsers, for instance if you use Opera on the desktop.

Although the browsing experience is satisfying, with tabbed browsing, searching text in a page, downloads, sharing, copying text, and so on, there is one catch that makes us pause. Opera Mini 5 beta is a proxy browser that delivers Web pages by way of Opera's server, not a standalone HTML Web browser that Android phones are capable of wielding. Casual users won't notice a difference most of the time, unless they need to accept the terms of a Wi-Fi network before they're allowed to browse. In our experience, we had to open the native browser to accept terms and then return to Opera Mini 5 beta for browsing.

    "Makes wonders out of my java supported phone!"

    April 28, 2012   |   By boki101

    Version: Opera Mini 7.0

    Pros

    I found it a bit too demanding at first,but then I realized Opera mini is a phenomenal program,firstly because it has all these useful shortcuts,so you don't have to use the menu to do any of the usual tasks. It is fast,deals with text and images perfectly and it even turns around my phone screen vertical-horizontal,as i prefer.

    Cons

    It loads up in approximately three seconds,which is fine,but maybe could be a bit improved. I guess it's all about phone memory and processing capabilities. Also,no shortcuts for top and bottom of a page. Sometimes I read long articles,so it would be useful.

    Summary

    Use this master piece of work,you won't regret it!
