Opera Mini Now Compatible with iPad

Earlier this morning, Opera Software launched a new update to the iOS version of its Opera Mini web browser, now released as a universal app compatible with both iPhone and iPad – until today, Opera Mini was compatible only with the iPhone. The app offers several nice perks when compared to Mobile Safari, mainly a nice user interface, visual tabs designed to allow you to switch between multiple opened pages by tapping on page previews, background loading of pages and tabs, as well as full blown history and bookmark menus. The app also allows you to share pages with your Twitter and Facebook contacts. As for other features, the new user interface will also benefit iPhone users, as the browser finally offers support for the iPhone 4 retina display.

Just like the other versions of the browser, Opera Mini is free, and is compatible with all iOS devices running iOS 3.0 or later. For more details about the app, click here.
