Test drive tabbed browsing, faster loading
Opera has announced that its Opera Mobile 10.1 web browser beta is available for download. The revised browser loads pages more quickly courtesy of Opera Turbo, its server side data compression service that pre-compresses popular sites by up to 80 percent. Also enhanced are the multi-touch functions such as panning, scrolling, and zooming in order to make the experience more fluid. The new tabbed browsing experience, called Opera Presto, provides a visual tab experience.
Other new functions that have been added include a password manager that helps to minimize the amount of typing a user has to do when accessing certain sites. It also includes the Opera Link Ability that allows users to synchronize bookmarks across devices. [via Financial]
