Opera Mini 5 Beta for Android: Not Looking Good

By Posted 11 Mar 2010, 13:25

Opera’s mobile browser (Opera Mini) has proven to be pretty popular on many different handsets over the last few years, however a version of Opera Mini which has recently launched for Google Android is apparently not that great.

Opera Mini 5 Beta has recently put to test by one of IntoMobile’s writers, although the writer is a fan of Opera’s previous browsers he is not a fan of Opera Mini 5 Beta for Android.

He was running the software on his Google Nexus One, apparently compared to the smartphone’s default browser the page rendering was awful and nowhere near as impressive as Opera Mini on the iPhone, that said it is still in it’s beta stages, perhaps the proper release will be more impressive.

Have your tried Opera Mini 5 beta on your Android handset? If so, tell us what you think so far in the comments section below.

    I would disagree. I think it is terrific…much better than the default and other options available . Happened upon this page searching how to make it the default browser, in fact. I tried the previous Opera that was available for Android, but did not care for it. However, I think they have a winner here until Firefox mobile comes out (it will likely be preferred because of the extension support and all the extensions).

      Thanks for your feedback, I do not own an Android handset, however really like Opera on my N96, not too long now until I'm due an upgrade.
