A better mobile browser

8 09 2006

This isn’t news by any stretch, but worth posting – just for the record. 🙂

With the desktop browser market fiercely competed by Microsoft Explorer and Firefox, Opera have designed and implemented the best web browsers around for mobile devices. The interface of the free Opera Mini 2.0, designed for mobile phones, is simple, intuitive and makes the best use of the small screen size to present information.

Opera also make a version of their browser for PDAs and smartphones called “Opera Mobile” – which is a commercial product costing US$29. However, if you’re likely to be doing a lot of browsing from your PDA or smartphone, it could be a frustration- and time- saving investment.

In terms of a “just in time” learning tool, Opera Mini comes with a search tool that can be used to instantly search Wikipedia, dictionary.com, or Google/Google News, and a great history feature to access recently visited pages.
