Opera Link and new Mini beta 3

Opera has launched a new Link service to keep your mobile and desktop Opera browsing in step, with synced bookmarks, speed dial sites and personal bar. It has also launched a new beta (3) of the upcoming Opera Mini 4, point your browser to mini.opera.com as usual. The Opera Link press release follows...

Just downloaded it and my 1st thought was Nokia and Apple have got some catching up to do!
This is only a java mobile app and it's really really good.
Can't wait for a native version

What makes it even better is the integration with the new desktop Opera 9.5...bookmarks sync is great

I'm probably just being picky but as a non yahoo user I wish the start page didnt have two hard coded links to yahoo services.
The previous start page was perfect for my humble needs, now it's a bit more cluttered with stuff i don't want.
It's great to have the new features but a user choice to remove them would be nice.

picky about yahoo: Are you sure you got the new mini4beta3? They have cleaned up the frontend nicely. I have an extra click now for reaching wikipedia, but i like the new version a lot! Can manage nearly every setting. My guess is that you run mini v3.

Opera Mini 4 Beta 2 has a hard coded link to Yahoo in the bookmarks section.

The new version (Beta 3) doesn't have any hardcoded links.

I was also pleasantly surprised to find that all my bookmarks from beta 2 were maintained through the upgrade to beta 3.

Honestly, if Opera Mini had the ability to download files I would never need to use the S60 browser. Opera has it beaten from every perspective. I just hope they are able to monetize their free services enough to carry on developing them.

Two hardcoded Yahoo links in this new beta, see below in the screens.

P.S I was too lazy to login before, thats why I posted as 'unregistered'.

You have the option as always to create your own search plugin...go to any search input and right click to get the option to "create search"

I've replaced the Yahoo search with Google.

As if their unlimited yummy fortune cookies weren't enough, they've kept to their word too! I spoke to a few of the guys (and gals) at their stand at Excel and I said it would be great if bookmarks/feeds could be shared between the different platforms. They said with a smile to look out for an update in about a week's time and low and behold... Opera Link!

Now if only they could sort out Nintendo DS and Wii support for Link (but I believe that's ultimately Nintendo's decision).

Hard coded bookmarks

I've discovered that what were previously thought of as hard coded bookmarks are actually "Speed Dial" bookmarks that can be deleted or changed on another screen past the regular bookmarks management dialogue

Talking

Brilliant!! I'll point out that you can use Opera Link on the pc without having Opera as your PC Browser, which is nice. Also that it's now so much easier to add a bookmark as you can do it all on the PC then sync up on your phone when you're done.

Loving it. Seriously.
