    Default The iPhone just got a new browser. Opera.

    Opera Software, maker of the world’s most popular mobile Web browser, plans to reveal Opera Mini for iPhone in an exclusive press and partner preview during the 2010 Mobile World Congress (MWC). Visit Opera’s exhibit in Hall 1, C44, to witness a new way to surf the Web on the iPhone — an experience that Opera promises will be fast, easy to use, and packed with favorite Opera features.



    Opera Mini is renowned for its compression technology, which results in significantly faster Web-page loading and reduces data surcharges. With favorite desktop features in its arsenal, such as tabs, Speed Dial and the password manager, Opera Mini is designed with usability in mind.

    “We are thrilled to offer journalists and partners an exclusive preview of Opera Mini for iPhone during the year’s biggest mobile event,” said Jon von Tetzchner, Co-founder, Opera Software. “This is a unique opportunity to introduce the fast, feature-rich Opera Mini experience for the iPhone, and to showcase our latest beta releases of Opera Mobile and Opera Mini on other platforms and devices. Opera’s mission is to bring the Web to the world, and by making Opera Mini available on yet another platform, we are one step closer.”

    While Opera Mini for iPhone is not publicly available, visitors without a press pass will not leave Opera’s stand disappointed. Opera will unveil a host of other Opera-powered devices at its exhibit. Check out the following Opera technology, live from MWC:

    * Opera Mobile 10 beta 3 on Symbian S60 and Windows Mobile handsets
    * Opera Mobile 10 beta running on Android handsets
    * Opera Mini 5 beta, running on a variety of handsets and platforms
    * Opera’s cross-platform Widgets Manager beta, running on Windows Mobile and S60 handsets

    Default Re: The iPhone just got a new browser. Opera.

    So naturally, when the Oslo-based company invited Wired to try a preview build of Opera Mini on the iPhone at Mobile World Congress, we were very keen to see how it would fare. Our first impression? It's fast. While I've always found the Symbian platform rendered Opera Mini's interface somewhat slugglishly, putting a damper on the browser's lighting-fast network performance, on the iPhone Opera has finally found a platform to do justice to its nimble web-slinging.

    Scrolling through webpages is silky smooth, with nary a glitch or stutter regardless of the size of the page. The interface is instantaneously responsive as well, just as you'd expect from the iPhone. However, those expecting a tightly integrated browsing experience will be disappointed.

    Opera has maintained the user interface design present on the browser's incarnation on other platforms, so don't expect any iPhone-specific interface elements or conventions. Most noticeable is the lack of pinch-to-zoom support, a feature that Safari users will sorely miss, at least at first, instead adopting the double-tap present on other touch-enabled versions of Opera Mini. In our short test, though, we didn't find ourselves missing the feature at all, as Opera's intelligent text wrapping and reflow neglected the need to constantly adjust our zoom level in the first place.

    Also unique to the iPhone version, browsing sessions are remembered between application launches so your tabs and most recent page are available from where you left off -- a feature we'd like to see on versions of the app across all platforms. Lastly, there's a nifty tab-switching widget that appears along the bottom of the screen which looks something like a horizontal stack of cards, allowing speedy switching and closure of open tabs. For the most part, though, this is the Opera Mini you know and love.

    So, when can we expect a public release? "This is a very complete beta," says Gronvold, smiling. "But the short answer is -- when it's done."
