Opera Mobile 10.1 Beta released for Symbian

Opera have announced a new beta version of Opera Mobile for S60 3rd Edition and S60 5th Edition devices. Version 10.1 boasts a new rendering engine (Presto), new graphics library (Vega), and new Javascript engine (Carakan), all of which are also utilised in Opera's desktop browser. The end result is a significant boost in overall performance. Also new is geolocation support, which allows websites to serve up location specific content. The beta can be downloaded from the Opera website.

Read on in the full article.

No new settings that I can see, but performance does "feel" that bit more stable and faster.

Can't see the difference in kinetic scrolling that was mentioned tho?

Opera has a very bad habit of freezing for no apparent reason on my 5800, even when loading a very small page (no one else seems to have that issue?), only time will tell if the new engines etc have rectified that.

Much faster

I've found it much much faster than the current Opera mobile, and not really much hungrier with RAM usage, also can set it as default browser on N97, it doesn't work on all apps, but does open email attachments Well worth a try !!

This is so much better. The previous versions were slow and kept freezing on my innov8. This one's really fast and no more freezes.

Opera 10.1 on the N97

It's a definite improvement on the the previous Opera Mobile browser on the N97 "classic", and that was quite reasonable already. I managed to load the desktop version of a couple of rather large, media-laden tech blog sites (who shall remain nameless out of respect for this website :-)) (1) without crashing the browser, which *never* happened before (both on the previous Opera and on the built-in browser) and (2) in quite reasonable time over 3G, almost as fast as Opera Mini. It's quite fast and scrolls quite nicely, and now when it does run out of memory (like loading one of the aforementioned sites as a second tab) it gives you a warning rather than just crashing and exiting. Great job Opera! It actually makes browsing the web on the N97 fun again.

If you want to bring your bookmarks across into the beta version, you need to have an Opera account and login to the Opera Link function - this will synchronise your bookmarks across any install of Opera on mobile or desktop logged into the same function.

Smile Shortcuts on E90

I found these shortcuts on the E90 for Opera Mobile 10.1 beta :

Keys :
1 = Space : select text
2 : Page left
4 : Page down
6 : Page up
8 : Page right
# : The usual 11 shortcuts
* : like in the Opera Mobile 10.0 : doesn't work on E90

On E90 to select * = Shift + 8 . This might be the problem

Regards jApi NL

Predictive text?

Does this version of Opera now support predictive text input? e.g. when entering URLs, in html forms etc. The earlier beta version did not.

Works well but takes all the ram on my N97 mini

This works well, but nothing will run whilst this program is running. It's memory print is massive. All my programs had shutdown to make this run.
If this happens, the programs that shutdown to make more memory should be started back up when the program closes.
