In addition to various bug fixes and optimizations, there are a few new features available in Mini 6 and Mobile 11, some of them quite significant:
- New/improved and more streamlined user interface
- Both Opera Mini and Opera Mobile now feature a user interface for tablet devices
- Pinch to zoom is a major feature which people with touch screen phones have been asking for
- There are now buttons available to zoom with multiple levels on non-touch devices
- When you zoom in, the text dynamically wraps to adjust to the width of the screen. No more horizontal scrolling!
- When you scroll, you will also notice that there are buttons on the right that allow you to jump to the very top or bottom of the page
- A new button that allows you to share content through various services
- New tabs are now opened in the background
- Fat Finger Links: If you try to open a link and aren't quite able to hit the right one, Opera will zoom you even further in and highlight the links you may have tried to (similar to the fingertouch feature from a while ago)
Note: Not all features are available on all platforms.
Take a look at this video demo to see them in action.
