Opera Mini 3.0 Released for Phones
Opera Software on Tuesday released the final version 3.0 of its Opera Mini Web browser, which is designed for mobile phones. The upgrade introduces a number of new social networking features, such as photo sharing and a built-in RSS reader.
Other additions include support for secure SSL connections and speed improvements. Opera Mini uses server-side compression to make browsing the Web faster. The software is available free of charge, but a data plan is required from a wireless carrier to use Opera Mini. Most mobile handsets are supported, but recent Cingular phones are not compatible due to the carrier's Java Virtual Machine that asks the user to approve each data connection as it is made.
