Yesterday afternoon, Ryan, who is the biggest gadget guy I know, comes running into my office holding his cell phone out in front of him, “Opera released a browser for cell phones! It doesn’t use WAP, WML, etc - it just browses HTML. On almost any cell phone!”
Within minutes, I had gone to http://mini.opera.com on my phone, downloaded and installed the new browser, and was browsing a site to see how well it worked or didn’t. Wasn’t too bad, actually. A hell of a lot better than the WAP browser included in my Samsung phone. Now I may actually do some browsing on my phone from time to time without the session ending in total frustration.
Good job Opera - you actually beat both Google and Mozilla to the punch. Kudos.
