Editors' Review

+

Editors' note: This is a First Take of a beta product, not a rated review.

Opera strikes out in a new direction with Opera Mini 5 beta, a rewritten version of its mobile browser for Java phones, like Sony Ericssons and even BlackBerrys. The beta is not only slicker looking, with a glossy visual treatment that focuses on icons instead of on text links, but it also appeared faster in our tests.

The Mini 5 beta browser carries over several features from the desktop version and from Opera Mobile, the offering for Windows Mobile and Symbian phones. These include features like tabbed browsing, searching for specific words in a page, and Speed Dial, the signature splash page you get when you open a new tab. Speed Dial displays nine thumbnail images that you hyperlink to your favorite sites. Other improvements include a Password Manager and the ability to type directly into a text field. Previously, you needed to type into an intermediate page.

Opera Mini 5 beta is missing certain elements from the stable version, including Opera Link, Opera's tool for syncing common content like Speed Dial customizations and bookmarks across all your Opera browsers (for instance, the desktop, laptop, and mobile phone). It also lacks the ability to create custom search engines, and skins. Most of these should return by the time Opera Mini 5 goes final, Opera says. The application may reveal more hiccups and omissions during its beta development, but so far we're impressed with the overhaul we see, especially in focusing the interface with Speed Dial, and in improving productivity with browser tabs and with the Password Manager.

"Best Browser for Droid X"

August 13, 2011  |  By kakarr11

 |  Version: Opera Mini 5

Pros

Very easy to use and surprisingly functional.The Android version is fast, even with a lousy connection. Never used Opera but it looks and feels familiar. So grateful I found it.

Cons

I use it on a Droid X, an unreliable instrument with little or not support. So far, this is my only issue.

Summary

Opera Mini is a wonderful, smart and fast browser and now I am going to launch Opera on my MacBook Pro.

Thanks!

Pros

Thanks to Opera for the browser it is really fast than other browsers and it is really good for organization and for your favorite web sites.

Cons

"They took a good thing and ruined it..."

November 13, 2010  |  By blackstrat64

 |  Version: Opera Mini 5

Pros

None... Used to be a fine browser

Cons

Doesn't work with the Blackberry Bold, trackpad

Summary

if you have a blackberry with the track ball, it's a fine browswer, if not, steer clear.
Even with the track pad slowed to it's lowest setting, you can't navigate through Opera Mini... I would have hoped they would have worked on this, but alas... they haven't.

"fantastic service"

August 19, 2010  |  By krotchsniff

 |  Version: Opera Mini 5

Pros

The ease of opening an application. Made my new phone much easier to navigate.

Cons

Haven't found any flaws yet, but I've only used this application for two weeks.

Summary

Simply put, everything is in one location. My facebook, My space, my email, my newspaper, my school: everything I used the most is located on one page and I do not have to navigate all over my phone to different applications. This is great.

May 02, 2010  |  By simpson21

 |  Version: Opera Mini 5

Pros

Lots of features like bookmarks sorted by subject

Indescribably slow

"Faster than native browser"

April 16, 2010  |  By Tomldc

 |  Version: Opera Mini 5

Pros

I use it on my Blackberry and it is superior to the native brower. It loads pages faster, and has the benefit of tabbed browsing. It is also aesthetically very pleasing, especially with relation to the speed dial options with the preview of the page.

Cons

When using the search bar, if you want to search for something new, or even refine your search it doesn't work and you are required to return to the homepage to then enter a new search term. This is annoying put is no big deal

Summary

Searching history is great, and overall it gives a more computer like feel on a mobile device.
