If you’re a fan of the Opera browser and would rather avoid using Apple’s default browser Safari, you will be pleased to hear that the company has just released Opera Mini 6 for iOS devices. The new app comes with a few new features too including smoother panning and pinch-zoom and tabbed, thumbnailed browsing.
The app which is also compatible with the iPad as well as the iPhone is available as a free download at iTunes now. It adds new features to the browsing experience including its own My Opera service, Twitter, Facebook and a direct share function which allows webpages to be shared with the programs mentioned easily.
First released back in March for Android based tablets; the Opera Mobile browser has a smaller data usage due to the company’s compressed servers. Some users will be pleased to see an alternative to Safari offered up as the default browser has its issues.
Issues such as sluggish operations due to its lacking UI and a patchy user experience. Thanks to Opera Mini 6’s improved UI it may find it is preferred to Safari. Check out the Opera website for more details or download it for yourself by clicking the iTunes link above.
