Opera has released new versions of both of its on-the-go browsers (Opera Mobile 11 and Opera Mini 6) - the world's most popular mobile platforms.

The difference between the two browsers is that Opera Mini reduces pages down to around a tenth of their size, saving you on data and making surfing quicker, and Opera Mobile is the whole shebang, complete with HTML 5 bells and whistles.

Both new versions offer a smoother scrolling UI, pinch to zoom on supported devices, social network sharing options and they've also both had a tablet makeover, making them more natural on bigger screens.

“If you’ve lost that loving feeling for the Web on your phone or tablet, don’t let it bring you down. Just try one of our browsers,” said Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software. “The sun always shines on TV, but the Opera browser shines on more than 3000 devices.”


The Opera Mini 6 browser works on J2ME, Android, BlackBerry and Symbian/S60 phones and the Opera Mobile 11 browser plays nicely with Android, Symbian, Windows 7 desktop (labs release), MeeGo (labs release) and Maemo (labs release) platforms.

They are both available now.
