Opera Mini 4 beta 2 released

Opera Latest news from Opera, they had launched Opera Mini 4 beta 2 with many bug fixes and some new features. This version will not overide your previous Opera Mini installation, so you can still use them both for comparison.

Here’s an overview of some of the notable changes/additions with Opera Mini 4 beta 2 (since beta 1), yeah I copy and paste this from Opera page:

  • Now you can add the search engine of your choice to the start page, just like in the Opera desktop browser. Hey, now you could put Google Search on the start page.
  • Shortcut keys
  • Browse in landscape mode — view the Web on a wider screen (Shortcut key: ‘*’ and ‘#’)
  • Native menu for BlackBerry phones
  • Lots of optimizations for BlackBerry phones
  • Content folding – Collapses long menu lists (like those found on sidebars of webpages), so you don’t need to scroll through them to get to the page content. Note: This only works in “Fit to width” mode, not desktop.
  • Supports secure connections for banks, eBay, etc.
  • Small fonts have been enabled
  • Simplified setup process
  • Improved image quality
  • Improved cookie support
  • Ability to edit the current URL
  • Added ‘Full screen’ mode
  • Dialogs now use web 2.0-ish look and feel
  • Added support for more phones
  • Fixed a ton of bugs

Too bad I can’t try this Opera Mini since my mobile phone is old enough.. *sigh!*


  1. I haven’t tried this beta release yet. I am still with the old one. So far, I like all features available (in the old version). The latest version seems promising.

    Well, I don’t use Opera Mini too much since I work with CRT most of the time. Hehehe… 😀

  2. How about the comparison between this release and swiftfox? Or any other ‘lite’ version browser?

    I think I need to buy new cellphone so I can use Opera Mini T_T

    I don’t know yet, but it’s a nice idea to do a comparison ^_^

  4. I think I need to buy new cellphone so I can use Opera Mini T_T

    i hope its can run on my T610 ^_*

  5. Currently, I have Opera Mini 4 beta 1 installed on my SE K608i. It’s really sexy dude, so fast, smart and playing well at bed 😀

    I will give a try for beta 2 and I think sandal, you must have it on your cellphone as operaism in mind.

  6. @Dek aip : swiftfox is not a mobile web browser for phones, so no comparison needed imho

  7. yup, i love opera mini 4 very much..
    it’s coolest tiny browser ever..
