Opera releases new betas of Opera Mini and Opera Mobile

Oslo, Norway - December 2, 2009

Opera today launched the second beta versions of Opera Mini 5 and Opera Mobile 10, available as free downloads. In this second beta release, Opera Mini and Opera Mobile users can now enjoy popular desktop features, such as Opera Link and the Download Manager, from their mobile phones.

With Opera Link, users can synchronize personal browser settings with their Opera desktop browser, as well as all their connected devices, ensuring that their bookmarks, Speed Dial and search engines are always accessible. The Download Manager gives users a better way to control and speed up downloads to mobile phones.

Opera continues its mission to unify its browser products, and today's beta release is no exception. Features further polished in the second beta release are the unified look and feel across Opera's browser products, the visual bookmarks known as Speed Dial, and tabbed browsing, one of the most popular innovations in browsing history.

"For Opera, status quo is not an option. We are always improving our products, adding new functionality and features to deliver a faster and more personal Web experience," said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. "Also, unifying the look and feel, regardless of device, makes it easy for anyone to get online anywhere, anytime."

The far-reaching popularity of Opera Mini continues to grow month after month. Opera reports that almost 40 million people used Opera Mini in October, saving the consumers 9.4 billion USD per year just by choosing Opera Mini.
