Opera Mini became the most popular Mobile Web browser in the world in March of 2011 with over 100 million users. And now iOS users are gaining access to the latest version of the browser with this new release of Opera Mini 6, which pays special mind to slower data connections.
What’s New in Mini 6
Opera Mini 6’s new features and improvements range from technical and functional to cosmetic and fun. Firstly, Mini 6 compresses data traffic up to 90%, which should be a boon to individuals with slow networks or who are paying per megabyte used.
Opera Mini 6 also scales appropriately depending on what screen displays it. For the iOS version this means that the browser on the iPhone 4 will adjust appropriately for the phone’s high resolution and the interface will be optimized for the size of the device. The Mini 6 browser also adjusts to the Apple iPad.
Other improvements and additions include faster panning and zooming, new skin and menus, and social networking integration with My Opera, Facebook, Twitter or vKontakte through share buttons onboard the browser.
Opera Mini 6 for iOS is currently available in the Apple App Store, free of charge.
