Impressions: Opera Mini 2.0
I've managed to download Opera Mini, the mobile phone internet web browser only recently available in version 2.0. Installation to my Sony Ericsson W800 was a breeze via my PC. The download size was a mere 94kb and all I had to do for installation was connect the W800 to my PC using the USB cable and copy the installation files to the "Other" folder on the phone. A click on the installation file and that's it: Opera Mini on my mobile!
I find Opera Mini a pleasure to use. On starting you have to agree to a EULA, and after doing so you are brought straight away to the start page which is simple yet very useful containing a Google search bar, an address bar and several useful Opera related links.
It rendered most of the web pages I tried quickly and I have to say all the webpages I've seen so far rendered pretty well. For example, I put my own blog's address and the pictures above and below shows how the images & text look like. I thought the images were resized really well and the text was readable. I like it!!
Mobile browsing fun, oh boy!

ps. Opera is my 2nd favourite browser on the PC. Second to Firefox, of course. But still Opera is an excellent web browser in it's own right.
