Opera has just announced the launch of the second beta versions of Opera Mini 5 and Opera Mobile 10, both available for free. The new versions allow users to enjoy desktop features like Opera Link and the Download Manager on their mobile devices.
Opera Link allows users to sync personal browser settings with the desktop version of Opera, plus all their connected devices, as well. Thus, Speed Dial, search engines and bookmarks will always be accessible. Download Manager will allow better control and extra speed for downloads on mobile phones.
The second beta release of both Opera Mini 5 and Opera Mobile 10 brings a more polished look of the software, visual bookmarks (Speed Dial), tabbed browsing and more. With this evolution, Opera hopes to unify all products across all supported platforms. Opera Mini is proving to be a popular option, since almost 40 million people used the browser in October, according to official stats.
