Opera Mobile 9.7 launches in beta

Mobile browser renders pages '25% faster'

Opera software has made the beta version of its latest mobile browser, Opera Mobile 9.7, publicly available.

The latest version of the browser features Opera Turbo technology and Opera Presto 2.2 - the same rendering engine used in Opera's desktop browser - which the software company says speeds up data transfer and renders pages up to 25 percent faster than previous versions of the browser.

The browser also features an add-on Opera Widgets manager that offers users one-touch access to their favourite websites and services such as Twitter and Google Translate.

"There are other mobile browsers on the market that claim to be faster and more website-compatible on Windows-based phones, but I challenge users to take Opera Mobile for a test drive and discover a new standard for speed and compatibility.

"Opera Mobile 9.7 leaves other 'sluggish' and 'painfully slow browsers in the dust," said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software.

Opera Mobile 9.7 is available for Windows Mobile phones and can be downloaded from Opera's website.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
