Opera browser leaves beta, stable version now on Google Play

The Opera browser has been famous for using the least data consumption while web browsing in this day where economy is tight. Opera for Android has exited beta and arrived on the Google Play Store as a fully-fledged stable app. The mobile version of the long-running browser is based upon the WebKit rendering engine — the same software used by the stock Android browser and  Google Chrome.

But it’s user-facing features rather than technical details that Opera’s counting on to help it compete on Android. Speed Dial has long been part of the desktop Opera browser, allowing quick access to
frequently visited bookmarks. The “Discover” tab provides a summary of news items. The “Off Road” mode uses data compression to make the most out of slow or expensive connections. And text reflow is included in the initial release, too.

Opera for Android is available now on here on Google Play. If you decide to take it for a spin, be sure to hit the comments and let us know what you think.
