Here it is, folks, the long-awaited browser you've been itching to try; Opera Mobile 9.5 beta.
The beta, launched moments ago, promises to give the mobile browsing experience a complete makeover. Opera Mobile 9.5 is said to be faster than previous versions, and promises key features such as pan and zoom, an improved user interface, and improved standards support.
If you're unfamiliar with Opera 9.5, here's a little video to show you what it has to offer:
Unfortunately, this first beta release doesn't provide a complete feature set. Support for Flash video on Windows Mobile and Symbian devices isn't yet available, but will be added at a later date.
Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software, said:
Our fans have been eager for the release of Opera Mobile 9.5 since it first appeared at the Mobile World Congress this year. We are now answering the call of the people and delivering what we proudly proclaim to be our best Opera Mobile browser to date. It is a totally new user experience.
Despite the fact that this is the first beta release, and no doubt has its problems, we're sure you're wanting to put it through its paces, so here's the link: http://www.opera.com/products/mobile/
