Opera Mini is a brilliant piece of software, I use it every day! And I love it... You can use it in restaurant, bus, traffic jam (in car), toilet (WC), bed... everywhere!

So thank you Opera!

Can't say I've had much use for Opera Mini on my phone since I got myself a Nokia N800 Internet Tablet, but it is still useful when in a pinch.

While I would prefer Opera Mobile, Opera Mini 4 is still miles ahead of Blazer on my treo.

Oh how I would love to replace that stupid openwave browser with opera mini. All I ask is just one other company please create a BREW browser.

Opera Link + Opera9.5 + Opera Mini 4 is greatest thing ever. I cant even manage to count time when is have lost all my bookmarks.
Besides, now i will be able to have all my bookmarks on every OS i use. Linking bookmarks in FreeBSD <=> Linux was pain, and i never could make Win <=> FreeBSD works. Now thats obsolete.

tnx opera-team !

On a PDA

When using a stylus-based PDA, it's remarkable how Opera Mini 4 behaves like MobileSafari. Except for the multitouch gesture; the tap-to-zoom is there, the scroll-by-sliding-a-finger is there, and, of course, it renders pages like a proper browser.

I still think it misses some grown-up stuff like the Quick Dial interface and tabs, but downloading Opera Mini 4 is a *must* for me, given the (now anemic) S60 browser on my E70...

it got a quick dial interface...

you will find it under the bookmark area...

it allows you to access the rss feeds and up to 9 bookmarks using * and 0-9 (0 being the rss feeds).

that is, if your pda has number keys ;)

not exactly related, but lately i have had problems logging in using the mobile osnews page. this in both opera mini 4 and in my phones built in browser.

the error message is that i have not entered a username or password, even if i have.

also, when encountering images using opera mini 4, the images gets shifted sideways and the ui turns into a combo of page view and mobile view.

I'd had problems with each beta since the first in that they crashed my phone but the production release seems very good indeed.

While I'm not sure about the microscopic (yes, a little overstatement there) view but for the most part, the browser works very well and beats the inbuilt browser easily. You'd think a phone vendor would make sure their browser would be able to dial the phone number on a page but thankfully, Opera Mini can.

The betas were total unstable crap but the actual release is working really well, if a bit slow, on my Blackberry Pearl. The zoom feature is awesome. I just wish I had a bigger screen...
