Go get the final version of Opera for Android, the browser that makes browsing the web a thing of beauty.

The Beta tag has been shed and the final version of Opera’s browser for Android has been released to the public. You can get it from Google’s Play Store or directly from m.Opera.com. And you should get it! This is a mobile browser that brings beauty, easy content discovery, and top performance to the browsing experience.


“The Opera for Android browser, now out in the final version, gives you the easiest, fastest way to discover a world of new content on your Android phone,” said Opera Software in a press release. “Opera has rethought, redesigned and rebuilt the browser experience into a thing of beauty. But what is beauty without brains? Opera for Android has something for both brain hemispheres.”

Opera For Android Main Features
  • Looks – the browser comes with a new lighter color scheme and a new interface that was redesigned with ease of use in mind. The intuitive, elegant interface was built to the native specifications of the Android platform.
  • Speed – this is Opera Software’s fastest browser for Android.
  • Off-Road Mode – speaking about speed, the Off-Road feature compresses web pages so you can enjoy high-speed browsing on a poor connection or outside your regular network.
  • Speed Dial – the much-requested ability to organize Speed Dials has been added. You can create folders and organize your dials.
  • Download Manager – the built-in download manager lets you download, pause, and resume files from the web. This means you can download and keep movies, music and other media files.
  • Address Bar – you can put the address bar at the top or at the bottom of the screen; the address bar and the search bar have been combined into one.
  • Discover – this new feature brings you news, articles, and other interesting content suggestions. Opera Software described Discover as having a personal assistant scouting interesting content for you.
"Most people just see a fraction of what the web has to offer," says Rikard Gillemyr, EVP of Consumer Products at Opera Software. "We check out the same sites every day, and you can get through with the latest news after just a short bus ride. We wanted to give people a relaxed way of discovering interesting articles and checking them out without any extra effort."

Opera for Android provides support for Android 2.3 Gingerbread and newer.
