Discover browser beauty with Opera for Android

There's a lot of thought that goes into choosing the best.

A decent lump of cash, some serious research and a lot of thought are what most people put into purchasing their new Android smartphone. Why not make sure it's also set up to discover the best new stuff on the web? 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.

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.

The interface of Opera has been redesigned, with a lighter color scheme, and made super intuitive to use. Opera for Android brings a new perspective of the web to your smartphone, ready to go after a quick and free install from the Google Play store. It's our Discover feature, and you're going to call it the best thing to happen to a browser since the back button.

With Discover, finding new and inspiring articles is just a quick swipe to the right from your home screen. It's like having an itsy-bitsy personal assistant in the browser, scouting out the hottest news and feeding it to people as they like. Pick your interests from categories such as Arts, News, Technology and more, and get back to discovering the internet all over again. It's all automatic, already installed in your Opera browser for Android.

"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."

Goin' all-terrain

That maxed out, top-tier, faster-than-greased-lightning data plan is great, sure. But there are still times when even the best data connection just does not cut it: the moment at the stadium after your home team wins and everyone gets on Facebook, the bad coverage at the beach, or that ridiculously expensive search for a restaurant when traveling abroad and roaming.

Meet our Off-Road feature, which will get you out of even the most sluggish of sluggishy networks, all over the world.

The Off-Road feature offers data compression, which reduces the amount of data traffic while browsing on your Android phone. Just flick a switch and Opera for Android starts saving you time on bad connections and money when roaming during traveling.

Beauty and the browser

Beauty is more than skin deep in Opera for Android. Sure, there's a sleek, easy-to-use interface and elegant Speed Dial that can now hold all your bookmarks in an easier way than before.

In Opera for Android, beauty is expressed in functions such as text reflow that lets people view web text at any zoom level without scrolling sideways. There's elegance in the revamped and combined address and search field for super easy access. Switching between several open webpages is easy as a swipe of the finger in a visual overview of the open pages, and everything is built on a new foundation based on Chromium to ensure better compatibility with websites. All things that make you go "Huh. That's clever."

Download the free Opera for Android from Google Play Store or m.opera.com for any mobile phone running Android 2.3 or above, and get the best web experience on your Android phone.
