One of the most popular mobile browsers available on the market, Opera Mini has just been updated to version 7, which brings more goodies for Opera fans.
Firstly, it comes with a new feature called Smart Page. With Smart Page, users will be able to access all the latest information of their Facebook and Twitter feeds through a single page, which offers a summary of all the news.
The new feature will keep Opera Mini 7 users updated with their social life. In addition, Smart Page offers suggestions for news sites to follow, as well as the option to add the feeds of favorite sites.
Secondly, the application comes with another new feature dubbed “support for unlimited amount of speed dials.” Basically, this means that the Speed Dial Screen has been improved and now supports an unlimited number of shortcuts to favorite sites.
Aside from these two new features that are now available for all three platforms, Java, Symbian and Blackberry, Opera Mini 7 brings lots of improvements and bug fixes.
For example, the Java version now offers improved performance for Nokia S40 devices and enhanced find in page UI. Furthermore, devs removed the pre-filled “www.” in the address bar.
The Symbian version now has support for Russian keyboard and localizations for Arabic, Hebrew, Farsi and Urdu. Some freeze problems with big Opera Link accounts and reconnection issues have been fixed as well.
However, Opera fans should know that there are (due to handset limitations) some device specific problems with RTL support on BlackBerry and J2ME. Also, on S60 v2 phones, there is a known issue with delays when displaying images.
“I’ve spent hours typing web addresses on my mobile phone, but now there’s a super smart way to get most of your content at a glance. With Smart Page, you just open the browser, and the content is right beside your Speed Dial shortcuts in the start screen for you to skim through — super practical, super time-saving and super smart. I guess that’s why the product team called it Smart Page,” say Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software.
