Editors' review

The Opera Mobile browser has long been a top alternative to Internet Explorer on Windows phones. This latest overhaul streamlines the full Web browser, making it graphically rich, simpler to use, and even more in tune with Opera's desktop browser. For example, the browser opens with Speed Dial, a customizable collection of thumbnail images that link to your favorite sites. To make programming these bookmarks even more automatic, users of Opera on other devices (like the desktop) can sign on via Opera Link and sync bookmarks, Speed Dial, and history between the browsers.

Inside you'll find tabbed browsing, a password manager, and a download manager. You can search within a page, download images, and bookmark pages. You can copy text and easily feed that into a search. We still wish Opera would combine the search bar with the address bar, however, and we miss being able to create a custom search engine from a favorite site. Video playback is another snag; Opera won't transcode video, but can play from mobile optimized sites like YouTube for mobile phones. Overall, performance is solid and the app runs smoothly. Opera Mobile sits comfortably ahead of the current competition on Windows phones.

    "uncontrollable"

    August 11, 2011   |   By kirbyjp

    Version: Opera Mobile 11.5

    Pros

    looks like it would be a great browser with nice features, installs perfect

    Cons

    Here is the rub, I have a keyboard phone (samsung code sch-i220) and the interface is uncontrollable. using the direction pad (or any buttons) will not allow me to use any of the controls.

    Summary

    Not ready for primetime on windows mobile 6.1 smartphone with a keyboard...I have installed this many times all with the same results. Pretty much blows if you cannot type in a web site, use the tabs, or control the settings.

    "can't access the browser"

    January 24, 2011   |   By pelphreyfan1

    Version: Opera Mobile 11.5

    Pros

    Don't know

    Cons

    cant access the website

    Summary

    when I scroll down 10,000 word's to ACCEPT and I try to accept it won't click on so that I can. I would love to try out this browser but have been unable to. I am not very happy with Internet Explorer on my phone. I had regular Opera Mini before downloading Opera 10. Now I don't have either one. Opera 10 alway's come's up if I try to do anything on the internet so now I can't get anything on the internet at all. Bummer
