3. Touchscreen or keypad browsing – Opera Mini caters to the needs of your phone, offering optimal browsing for both touchscreen and keypad-based phones.
4. Password manager – Opera Mini is a virtual memory bank, securely saving all passwords for e-mail, social-networking sites, online banking and more.
5. Speed Dial – This is our take on a table of contents for your Web adventure. Opera’s Speed Dial will greet you with your pre-selected Internet favorites upon loading the browser.
"In our own research, we have learned that the number-one reason people use Opera Mini is because it is easy - easy to use the Web you know. The idea of navigating the vastness of the Web from such a small screen can be a daunting leap, which is why we have long committed to make the browsing experience you are familiar with from your PC, easy to do on your mobile phone," said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. "With new, sleek navigation buttons, tabbed browsing and Speed Dial bookmarks, you are never more than a click away from where you want to go on the Web."
