Loads pages fast, formats pages well for small display, bypasses ISP filters.
on 14 November 2013
I installed this on my Archos A43IT which is a 4.3" tablet running Froyo Android 2.2 without Google Play or the Google apps except stuff like Gallery and Browser. Mostly I use the free open source web browser Zirco but I like to have an alternative and Opera Mini is useful as it renders pages very quickly and formats them well for a small screen. As it proxies everything through Opera's servers outside the UK it doesn't block Pirate Bay, Bitsnoop etc which are blocked by the major ISPs by court order and it also bypasses any local url or DNS based blocks or filters such as ISP family filters. It will also be useful if you visit countries with a lot of censorship or clumsy filtering. Opera Mini has very convenient speed dial type start page, easy bookmarking and tabbed browsing and is nice to use.
