RE: Opera Mini 2.0 released

Opera Software today announced a new version of its awesome micro HTML-browser for non-smartphones, Opera Mini 2.0.

Lots of new features like: change browser’s visual skin, search engine improvements, speed dial for bookmarks, and quick horizontal and vertical panning when browsing backwards or forwards.

I tried using several previous versions of Opera Mini on my Blackberry in the past and the quirky usability killed me. The thumbwheel was useless. Performance was sluggish, too! This version fixed those quirks. You can use the thumbwheel to click on a link now. Usability has dramatically improved and the performance is pretty good. So far I like it and I suspect I will start using it over the built-in browser.
