APP WATCH: Opera Mobile 10.1 beta for Android

If you are on the hunt for a new browser for your Android phone, you might want to consider the newly-launched Opera Mobile 10.1 beta. Especially as it's free.

'Android users now have a better choice when it comes to using a browser on their mobile devices,' said Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software. 'With Opera's new browser for Android, we give users the opportunity to access the Web, using the best tools available.'

Well, they would say that. But it certainly has its plus points. For a start, it's up there with the best of them for speed, helped by Opera Turbo, which provides up to 80 per cent data compression. In addition, the browser offers a 'highly fluid' panning, scrolling and zooming experience, 'speed dial' for your favourite websites, along with a password manager to cut down on the typing. You'll also get easy tab management with visual tabs, the Opera Presto rendering engine, the option to sync your bookmarks across devices with Opera Link, Geolocation support and SVG support.

Grab it now from the Android Marketplace.
