http://www.downloadsquad.com – Filed under: Browsers, MobileOpera has just released the second beta of its Mini 5 browser. Amongst other changes and fixes, Android is now supported. Until now, Android users have been stuck with Opera Mini 4.2, a thoroughly lackluster browser that really doesn't compete with either the stock WebKit browser or Dolphin. With Mini 5, Opera becomes a serious contender for the growing Android device market. Initial reviews suggest that Opera Mini 5 is quick and handy, but doesn't seem to render either JavaScript or Flash content -- I doubt it's going to replace your default browser for the time being. But give it time, it's just a beta! If you want more details, PCMag has a hands-on review with the new browser, but it's probably easier to just install Mini 5 and give it a go yourself.
