OPERA MINI

It’s fast, cost-efficient Web browser
The servers are so powerful; they compress data by up to 90% before sending it to your iPhone, so page-loads are lightning fast.
Opera Mini is a breeze to use, and can synchronize data between your phone and computer.

It has great features,

    Speed Dial gets you to your favorite Web sites with a single tap.
    An address field with auto-completion means you type less.
    Tabs allow for multitasking with several Web pages.
    Bookmarks can be easily managed and accessed.


Opera Mini is designed primarily for mobile phones, smartphones and personal digital assistants. Version 4  uses the Java ME platform, requiring the mobile device to run Java ME applications. From version 5 it is also available as a native application for Android, bada, iOS, Symbian OS, and Windows Mobile. Opera Mini is offered free of charge, supported mainly through deals with mobile operators to have Opera Mini pre-installed in phones.

ORIGINS

Opera was originally developed for windows back in 1996.  It has now been ported to just about anything with a CPU (including the Nintendo DS).  Opera Mini for Android has a very unique design in the fact that all data is exchanged through Opera Software Servers.  Rather than your phone requesting the data directly from the URL you are looking at, instead it is requested by the Opera Server.  This server then compresses the data before passing it along to your phone, reducing bandwidth usage by up to 90%.  This alone makes it a great choice for those with limited bandwidth.  Additional options allow you to reduce image sizes, and even turn off images entirely.

Using the Opera Mini interface

When you start Opera Mini, you are presented with the home page, where you can search, access services, and review your history.

You can use the soft keys to access the Opera Mini menu. The menu allows you to open a new page, access bookmarks, return to the home page, access tools, or exit Opera Mini. When entering a URL, you can access a list of previously typed addresses using the More menu, or the Opera Mini menu.

The Tools menu allows you to modify your settings, review or navigate through your history, add bookmarks, or view help, and report a bug. You can also view information about the page currently being displayed, such as the page title, address, icon, size and security information. Note that the connection between Opera Mini and the Opera Mini server is not secure, so all pages will show as insecure, even if they are accessed using the HTTPS protocol.

In the settings, you can say if you want to load images, if you want to use high resolution images, and if you want to jump directly to the start of the main page content when loading a page. Depending on your handset, you may also be offered additional options, such as selecting a skin, setting a font size, smooth scrolling, and navigation animations. Some handsets may also show a clock on the Opera Mini toolbar, and will allow you to set options for that clock.

Some menu items can be accessed using keypad combinations. If a keypad combination is available, this will be displayed on the Opera Mini toolbar when that menu item is selected.

The bookmarks view allows you to add, delete, and sort bookmarks, using the Manage menu. Edit any bookmark to change its name or address, and to say if it should appear on the home page. Bookmarks that appear on the home page may be accessed using Speed Dial, if this is available on your handset. These bookmarks will be given a number based on the order that they appear on the home page. The first will be given 1, the second will be 2, and so forth. To use Speed Dial, simply press * followed by the bookmark number. This can be used at any time while Opera Mini is running.

Some Web pages may offer files for download, and within Opera Mini, images may also be selected for download, depending on your handset. When a file is ready for download, Opera Mini will offer to start downloading the file, using the download manager on your phone. Your phone's download manager may need to exit Opera Mini to download a file, and some download managers may place restrictions on what types of files can be downloaded, or how they can be used.
