Default Opera Mini 7 Browser Lands on Android; Opera 12 Released, Too

Growing tired of Android's stock browser? With so many alternatives to choose from, there's no reason to be weary with your vehicle of choice for surfing the Web. One of those alternatives is Opera Software's newly released Opera Mini 7 browser, now available as a final, stable build for the Android platform. Opera Mini 7 boasts unlimited Speed Dials, faster performance, and "significant improvements" to language support, including support for Farsi and Arabic, in case either of those are of interest.

"Opera Mini 7 for Android makes browsing faster and panning around sites smoother, thanks to improved hardware acceleration," Opera Software stated in a press release.

The main trick in Opera Mini 7 is data compression. As you surf the Web, Opera Mini 7 "squeezes and jams webpages from the network into your phone," cutting out up to 90 percent of the original data.

In related news, Opera Software also recently released its Opera 12 browser for the desktop. Opera 12 sports improved HTML5 support (including Drag and Drop), CSS3 Animations, and 64-bit builds with Out-of-Process plugins.
