While the rest of the platforms have been getting lots of love from Opera, Android was stuck with Opera Mini 4 for a year now, but they’ve recently received the new version as well. Thus, Opera Mini 5 beta is now ready to go on Google’s platform, complete with the newest features.


The most important new feat is certainly the implementation of tabbed browsing, that has become a default option on most modern browsers. Opera Mini 5 also brings Speed Dial and Password Manager on Android, with the first function allowing the user to access one of 9 favorite sites with a single click. Opera Link is also on board, syncing bookmarks between the desktop browser and the mobile one.

We all know what the main appeal of the Opera Mini browser is: its ability to compress data, in order to save money for folks with expensive data plans. Does this version compete with the default Android browser? What do you say?
