This beta version of Opera Mobile 10 for Windows Mobile is the best incarnation of the application to date, improving what was already an excellent browser. Using the program is effortless thanks to Opera Mobile's tabbed interface, which allows you to open multiple pages at the same time and flick through them very quickly, much as you would do in your desktop browser. The inclusion of a Google search bar at the top of the interface makes it easy to get to the content you're looking for without wrestling around in menus, like you're made to in other mobile Web browsers.
Viewing pages in Opera Mobile is very comfortable. You can choose to fit the whole web page in one window or move the selection tool to the part of the page you want to look at and double click to zoom in.
Opera Mobile 10 integrates a bevy of time-saving tools and features, including bookmarks, a password manager, auto-complete addresses, and the ability to save pages for viewing offline. The program now includes the 'Speed Dial' feature from the desktop version of Opera, that gives you one-click access to your favorite pages from the start page.
Speed is something that Opera Mobile has always focused on, and this version of the app includes Opera Turbo, a technology that allows the browser to serve pages much quicker.
All of this combines to make Opera Mobile the ideal solution for anyone who wants to speed up and simplify their mobile Internet usage.
