Since the release of Opera Mini 5 beta 1, we've been working hard to implement new, exciting features, and fix a lot of bugs. Many of those bugs were reported by you, our users, and we thank you for that.
To download, go to m.opera.com/next, but please note that phone support for the new version may vary. It has, however, improved quite a bit from Opera Mini 5 beta 1.
Key new features:
- Download manager
- Opera Link, to keep Opera Mini synchronized
- Progressive loading
- And of course a lot of bug fixes
For more info, please read the press release
What is progressive loading?
Progressive loading means that pages you load are sent to your device in 'chunks'. Previously in Opera Mini, your page would be displayed once the entire page has reached your device. However, now your browsing experience will be faster and better, just like on your desktop! Please note that progressive loading only works using the socket protocol. Your connection will default to socket if possible.
As always, we welcome your feedback in our forum, and please report any bugs in our bug report wizard. Thanks!
Enjoy Opera Mini 5 beta 2!
