Opera Software, the developer of browser software for a variety of platforms, announced the availability of Opera Mini 6 for iOS today. The latest version of the app features a redesigned interface, compatibility with the iPad and the iPhone 4′s retina display, social network sharing features and more.
I would compare it to walking onto the stage and hearing the roar of the crowd,” said Opera’s, CEO Lars Boilesen, when describing the feeling of letting the Opera Mini 6 browser out on stage in the App Store. “We have put in a lot of rehearsal and clever thought behind the new experience. The Opera Mini browser has always kicked up the tempo when downloading pages; now the browsing flows along to a smooth, easy beat.
Opera Mini promises a faster and less expensive web browsing experience on mobile devices with requested web pages processed on their servers and sent to the mobile device in a compressed format that results in less data usage, resulting in lower costs for those on metered data plans.
Opera Software has posted a video highlighting the new features of Opera Mini 6:
Opera Mini first debuted for iOS a little over a year ago and racked up over 1 million downloads in its first 24 hours in the App Store. Since then, it has remained a regular in the Top 200 Free Productivity apps.
