Opera for mobiles

But yesterday i found out that it´s possible to download a version of the Opera browser on your mobile. It´s a beta version and is only available in the Nordic countries for the time being. The following is a quote from the Opera Homepage:
"Opera Mini™ is a fast and easy alternative to Opera's mobile browser, allowing users to access the Web on mobile phones that would normally be incapable of running a Web browser. This includes the vast majority of today's WAP-enabled phones.
Instead of requiring the phone to process Web pages, it uses a remote server to pre-process the page before sending it to the phone. This makes Opera Mini™ perfect for phones with very low resources, or low bandwidth connections.
Opera Mini™ offers the same speed and usability as the renowned Opera mobile browser, and uses Opera's Small Screen Rendering™ technology to provide access to the Web. It has all the features expected of a browser, and more, such as bookmarks, browsing history, and ability to split large pages into smaller sections for faster browsing."
I have used the browser for 24 hours now, and to be frank it´s even better than anything I could have expected. If you have a mobile with an internet connection - and live in one of the Nordic countries - do not hesitate to try it out.
