This fast browser is the ultimate for browsing on slow Internet connections or while paying per megabyte of data used.

Opera has a strong following as a mobile web browser and I can see why.  Page loads are considerably faster than what I’ve experienced on Dolphin and the default web browser, especially if the image quality is set to low.  Even on low, the image quality isn’t too bad.    Opera claims to be be able to reduce data usage and load times with their streamlined rendering engine.  The faster load times alone sways me to use Opera.

The Start Page allows up to 9 different web pages to be easily accessed on start up.

The toolbar on the bottom offers a simple way to navigate the browser.  The Tab feature allows  switching between web pages easily.  Too bad these tabs aren’t saved when Opera is closed.

Other features include:

Saving pages for reading at a later date, even without internet access

Download Manager, pause and resume downloads

Opera Link to synchronize bookmarks with other phones or pc’s

Mobile view

and more.

Like I said before, because of the faster load times, this is my browser of choice.
