Image for My Tiny Mini Web Browser

I got this Opera Mini installed to my cell phone, Sony Ericsson W810i, when I went back to my hometown last year. I didn’t know that my brother installed this web browser to my cell phone until there was a time when I wanted to open the internet through my cell phone. He told me then, that he had installed this Opera Mini. I was surprised at the way it worked. The pages I viewed were automatically resized. So if the usual loading size of a page was about 400 kB (I used the internal browser), it would be resized to about 30 or 40kB only. So it’s very economical, especially when the GPRS cost (depending on the operator) is high. The one thing I don’t like about it is that the page we load would be very small, almost unseen (I think it automatically adjusted to the cell phone display and the resolution). So every time a page load, I had to zoom in at a particular section (there was a pointer icon to make it easier for clicking the section we wanted). But surely enough, it’s a bit tiring for the fingers to always zoom in and zoom out all the time. Therefore, I didn’t use it quite a lot, only when I needed to open a website urgently. I like this web browser, but I guess it’s not that much of my favorite. Oh one more thing, my brother said that it could be used for uploading pictures as well, like in our Facebook account, or elsewhere, but I never tried to upload my pictures directly from my cell phone. There was a Facebook default option when opening this web browser and it’s located at the bottom of the address box along with other addresses to choose to (default addresses). I don’t remember the other default addresses since I always use the address box. It’s a good thing I have this Opera Mini, and if you want to give it a try, go ahead. But make sure that your cell phone supports Java, and, most importantly, get ready to get your thumbs ‘work hard’ clicking those zoom ins and outs.

Note: I’m not so sure which version my brother installed, but I think it’s not the latest version. Maybe version 3 or lower.
