Opera Browser for Android is here!
 
Opera Mini 5 has officially launched for the Android platform. The stock browser on the Moment was one of the main reasons I kept going back to my Touch Pro2. Opera Mini 5 has made web browsing on the Moment fun again. Go and grab it from the Market while it's hot! Post your likes/dislikes.

I have been waiting for this...

Using mobilespeedtest.com I compared Opera Mini 5 vs Stock browser with 3G connection sitting at my work desk which is located in a spot where Verizon folks are always walking around with their phones in the air trying to get a signal ](*,)...

Stock browser running 1MB test:

Your speed 659.522 Kbps
Latency: 0.364 seconds
Transferred 1000KB in 12.13 seconds

-----------------------------

Opera Mini 5 Beta running 1MB test:

Your speed: 5263.158 Kbps
Latency: 0.143 seconds
Transferred 1000Kb in 1.52 seconds

Opera Mini 5 Beta running 7MB test:

Your speed: 6922.126 Kbps
Latency: 0.127 seconds
Transferred 7000Kb in 8.09 seconds

:headbang:

I'm only seeing Beta (checked once)
Is the version you speak of unBeta?

hehe, that's cuz you're running the speedtest off of opera's servers. :)

i'm liking it a lot - it's now my default browser... only complaint is usage of the trackball / optical stick is a little slow and it doesn't allow to get out of the text window automatically. :)

It's not bad, but I like xScope a lot more. When they offer Opera Mobile for Android I'll see how it stacks up, but until then I am going to stick with xScope.

BTW, if you don't know about xScope, I am going to write a review on it in the next day or two for the PPCG portal. I will also be giving away free licenses in a contest that will run all next week.

I installed Opera Mini Beta, by noon my phone died... charged it, removed Opera Mini Beta and my phone is still alive!

Is it the beta version everyone is referring to?
