Opera Software has launched the Opera Mini 6 browser for iOS and is available to download for free from the Apple App Store for iPhone and iPad.
“We have put in a lot of rehearsal and clever thought behind the new experience. The Opera Mini browser has always kicked up the tempo when downloading pages; now the browsing flows along to a smooth, easy beat,” said Opera’s chief executive officer Lars Boilesen on the launch of the browser on the App Store.
The Opera Mini mobile browser provides a different kind of browsing experience to complement the default iPad and iPhone browser. It features up to 90 per cent compression of data traffic for speed and cost savings.
The browser adapts to the high resolution and changes the user interface to accommodate the screen size, hence is suitable for iPhone4. Also, the Opera Mini 6 browser will switch to a more convenient view for tablet handling, claims the company.
The iOS version of the Opera Mini 6 features a much faster and smoother panning and zooming that lets the user get all the way into the details of every page, in one smooth motion.
You can also share buttons to share the love for a site to your friends on My Opera, Facebook, Twitter or vKontakte right from the Opera Mini 6 browser.
The company has also redesigned menus of the browser. Scrolling and panning are ultra fast, even on the largest webpages, for instant access.
On iOS, the Opera Mini 6 browser is submitted as a single download for all iOS devices.
The Opera Mini 5 browser for iOS was launched in April 2010.
