Opera Mini

Continuing in the same vein as a few posts back, I feel compelled to point out that while I don’t use Opera as my main browser, I am particularly smitten with Opera Mini, Opera’s cell phone browser.

To be fair, I don’t use my cell phone for surfing much, as I have an odd preference for surfing on a proper screen, as well as writing on a proper keyboard and the like. Nevertheless, cell phone surfing can be a boon if you’re lost and need a map, or – a more likely event – you’re arguing with a friend about the make of Biggs Darklighter’s X-wing and need a quick Wikipedia fix.

On my SE K800i, Opera Mini works like a breeze; it’s a camera phone, so graphics are also good; it certainly doesn’t beat surfing on my laptop, but for what it is: a browser for a cell phone, it’s pretty damn good, and I certainly prefer it to SE’s own setup.
