Opera Mini 5.1 heads to Android

Opera Mini 5.1 prides itself on being the browser with the small footprint that works on pretty much any handset. But it promises to up its game now it has landed on Android phones.

'Opera Mini 5.1 for the Android platform is the next step in bringing the world's most popular mobile web browser to all major platforms, offering improved performance and great web experience to almost any handset," according to Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software. 'Opera Mini is used by over 61 million people on more than 3000 handset models and with today's release Opera continues its mission to provide the best web experience on any device and on any platform.'

Opting for Opera on Android also comes with the convenience of being able to set it as the default browser for your Android phone, with improved page layouts also promised on Android handsets with large screens. Aside from that, it's the Opera you might well already be familiar with, offering tabbed browsing, password manager, bookmarks and Speed Dial all built into the browser. Data compression also makes it super quick too.

If you want to give it a go, just head over to the Android market.
