Opera Mini for the iPhone

Opera announced their browser for the iPhone during the Mobile World Congress held at Barcelona. The browser is really fast compared to the iPhone’s native Safari. Opening up TheAppleGoogle was 2x faster on Opera Mini than iPhone’s Safari.

The main features include –

Speed – The Opera Mini is definitely faster than Safari.

Start-up Page – The startup page of the browser is a bit like Google Chrome and shows the tabs of all the sites you recently visited.

Secure – When you are on secure Web sites Opera Mobile 10 will visually display a padlock in the top right of the user interface to indicate your data is secure.

InPage Search – You could search for words within web pages by tapping the Tool’s icon and then Find in Page.

Negatives

The only negative part is that it does not support pinch zooming . To zoom you need to double tap the screen.

Opera said it’s just like the Opera Mini on any other mobile OS. Opera would be submitting their app to Apple in the coming weeks.
