    Being a forum focus on Verizon’s Android devices alone, we don’t like to get off topic too much but this is just too good. Opera has been known in the Windows Phone world as the best of the best, the greatest browser you could find (I should know, I said those things), Well now they have something pretty crazy for us Android users. Opera Mobile is the software they have been developing for the last year or so to replace their current Opera Mini in our hearts. The software was demoed by Techcrunch, and it was so smooth while scrolling and using pinch to zoom that you would think it came with butter for the grease. Every blog that has watched the video says the experience looks equal or better than what you will get with the iPhone, which as you know, is el-Capitan in that department.

    The software is not complete yet, and apparently there will be a public beta (which I will get) for those that want the software ASAP and would have no problem dealing with unfinished software. The great part about it is... It has no hardware acceleration in anyway in the video, so imagine that being added to the mix, it will make this software almost pirated when they offer it for free.

    Is this going to be your next browser? What do you currently us? Comment below after you follow the source link to watch the video.

    I will wait for those on the forums to rip into it and test it. That last few browsers that got some hype like every time a new Firefox comes out, xscope updates, and the old Opera, all just seem to never live up to the hype.

    Well that is true, but non of those are made my Opera, who as we all know is HTC's favorite browser maker.. Also non of them game with a video demo that made my mouth water up... So I guess we can say this is not hype.... its fact. ;)

    I tried out the Opera that is currently available on the Market, along with Skyfire, Firefox, and Dolphin HD. I have to say that I like Dolphin HD the best. The other ones have unique features, but in my experience, Dolphin has been the most reliable.

    While I agree, DolphinHD has been the best to date for me, I have to carry Opera around for a few sites that don't play well with Dolphin. I would be happy to run any pre release testing. One browser would be beneficial.

    The Opera version currently in the market is Opera Mini. This review is about the new product line that Opera is producing called Opera Mobile. From the video on techcrunch's site I have to say it looks like it will be really nice. I love opera for my PC so I can't wait to try this out when the beta officially hits their site.

    Browser War Report?

    So far Xscope leads the field in my book but OPera may be looking to take the throne. Competition is always good for us - the consumer - just like the burger wars, soda wars, telecom wars, mobile phone wars, etc. etc.

    You downloaded the version for the Symbian S60 OS. There is no Opera Mobile download for Android as of yet, just Opera Mini 5.1

    I'm gonna be Mr. skeptic here. I think Opera is losing it's major advantage, which is speed, with the new Opera Mobile. The current Opera Mini, is THE FASTEST browser available today in the Android field. But fastest doesn't mean the best. Some complex web pages don't show up good (they don't format well) on our Android screens. It seems that the new Opera Mobile addresses and fixes the formatting of pages, but at the cost of a slower speed. This puts the new Opera Mobile on the same ground as other available browsers instead having it's own niche (speed).

    Currently, I use both the default browser and Opera Mini. Each has it's own place and use. Try browsing the LA Times, NY Times, Wall Street Journal, etc. on both. Not just open the site and scroll around, but click on articles and then go back. When you've read an article and press the back button, you'll see it takes significant time to load the original page again, but with Opera Mini, it loads instantly. You will see Opera Mini is MATERIALLY faster than any other Android browser. There is a good reason for this. The Opera Mini sends all web page requests to their own servers which then fetch (and often cache) the pages and then forwards it as one whole piece (compressed) to the Opera Mini browser. This is why it's so much faster than other browsers who send requests directly to web pages and the download the page and it's advertisements from many various servers. Of course, this also means your passwords to websites are also stored on Opera's servers!

    The Opera Mobile acts like other browsers but going directly to the web pages to get the data. It bypasses their own servers. So the new Opera Mobile will be SLOWER than the current Opera Mini. But as I stated above, it will display pages more correctly than Opera Mini.

    I hope they don't take Opera Mini off the market and replace it with Opera Mobile. I'm all for speed when browsing large pages such as the Wall Street Journal.

    Ooh sounds interesting. I'm using Skyfire at the moment and once this beta comes out and people say it's that it's good as it is, I might jump ship to Opera. But Skyfire's been treating me nicely so far.

    I use opera on my computer, and I absolutely love it. I used it on my ipod touch for a little bit, but in the end I quit using it because of the fact that you couldn't watch any videos or see most pictures on it because it didn't support some plug-in. Maybe it's been fixed by now, but my droid has consumed my life instead. Hopefully it's better than the terrible firefox release we got!

    I'll give it a try. I was using dolphin for a while, but settled on xscope. I found using chrome to phone saves time too
