“The world’s most popular mobile Web browser with over 20 million users”, Opera Mini is out with a beta version 4.2. This beta installs next to any existing stable Opera Mini version on your device and will not overwrite any of your data.
One of the new features (actually not so new) is the re-introduction of skins, as obtained back in v3. I have never liked the bright red skin, and I immediately changed the skin to silver (my favourite Opera Mini skin) on my device.
This beta is also faster, as Opera has set up a new server to spread out more of the load. Though I haven’t tested it, Opera says certain phones will now be able to play video files in the browser.
