Opera Software Opera Software announced the availability of Opera Mini 4.1 for cellphones, which introduces the following new features: Opera Mini 4.1 is up to 50% faster than Opera Mini 4.0. The new Opera Mini will automatically suggest URL completions, making address input easy and intuitive. Web pages can be saved for later off-line viewing (newer Java implementation required). Opera Mini 4.1 gives you quick access to the word or phrase you want in Web pages. Images, ringtones and other content can be downloaded without leaving Opera Mini. You can test Opera Mini 4.1 from within your browser too (if you scroll all the way down on the mobile page of OSNews you can select between our desktop and mobile version).

I'm usually a bit negative about this browser because the magnification gets in the way, at least, on my 320x240 display. Version 4.1 seems to end up with fewer of those pages being zoomed out, which is a plus for me.

Landscape mode is great and the ability to synchronise bookmarks was already good in version 4. Besides, it knows how to dial phone numbers, something the phone's own browser doesn't.

They mentioned that they've upgraded their servers that do the transformations, so that the experience is quicker and that can't be a bad thing, either.
