The default web browser that powers the T-Mobile G1 isn’t a poorly designed browser. As you will know the G1’s touchscreen has some highly competitive features and makes navigating web-pages almost as smooth and as easy as with the iPhone Safari browser.
However, this hasn’t stopped Opera from barging in. Following on word that Opera was working to port their proxy-server-assisted Opera Mini browser to the Android platform, the folks have now finally launched their browser alternative through the Android Market. Opera Mini 4.2 beta for Android is now available for download and brings with it the usual fare – proxy-server parsed web surfing, skinning, bookmark sync, full-page view, and more.
Opera Mini 4.2 beta on the Android-powered T-Mobile G1 is everything you’d expect from Opera’s reputation for being a lean, mean web-parsing machine. Web pages load nice and fast. Web pages are processed through Opera’s proxy servers, so that page-rendering times are limited only by Opera’s super-fast servers. The proxy-servers push fully-rendered web-pages faster than any mobile browser tied to a handset’s CPU.
If you don’t mind it being still in beta and want to try it out on your G1, click on the Opera source link below to download it now…
