Opera Branches Out to Mobile Windows

Despite initial plans to skip the Windows smartphone market, Opera has broadened support for its Web browser onto Microsoft based mobile devices. Opera 8 brings the company's latest browsing technology to the small screen, with support for major Web standards including CSS2, DOM 2 and JavaScript.

"Originally, we had not planned to make Opera available on the Windows Mobile platform, but users kept asking for it because they were disappointed with the far from satisfactory performance of the browser that came shipped on their devices," said Opera CEO Jon S. von Tetzchner. Opera 8 for Windows Mobile 2003 Smartphone is available for download now; a Pocket PC version is in development.
