Opera Mini is a web browser that you can use for your mobile device, specifically Androids as well as Palm OS and Windows-based gadgets. It is a convenient method of being able to go browse on the Internet even with ridiculously slow connections to any network. Opera Mini uses a compression technique, which minimizes the use of data, enabling you to load pages faster and do what you need to do online without waiting for long. If you are just getting started using this type of browser, then you might need some Opera Mini help to get you going. Here are some useful tips to make sure your browsing goes off without any sort of problems.
The very first thing you should know is that in order for you to be able to use Opera Mini, you will need to have an Internet connection. This could be in the form of a Wi-Fi connection, or from your phone service provider. Typically, data plans come with some sort of Internet access for mobile phones. Do check with your provider if yours comes with that sort of access. The next issue that many users seem to have an issue with is installing the Opera Mini browser in their mobile phones. There are actually two ways of going about this. The first method, which is the fastest way to do it, is to use your phone’s default web browser and download from the Opera website itself. Do this by typing m.opera.com on the web address and clock the “download Opera Mini” option to get the browser on your phone. Simply follow the instructions and click “yes” to all the questions. The other method is to download the installer on your desktop, then manually transferring it to your phone before installing it.
Another concern that needs some paying attention to is the compatibility of you device to Opera Mini. The quickest way to make sure that your device can run the browser is to check the list of supported devices in the Opera website. At the same time, you can also choose the version of Opera Mini you want to download as all of them are listed on the site. Once you have finished with the installation process, you might be wondering where on Earth Opera Mini is in your mobile phone. More often than not, it cannot be found on your home screen. Usually, the browser can be found under applications or the File Manager. If not, just browse through your phone and find areas where third party applications can be downloaded.
With regards to the versions of Opera Mini and what you need to use, it really depends on the capability of your phone. To be sure, you need to once again consult the list of supported devices in the Opera website to see which version your phone would be better off with. Finally, if you have any questions that have not been answered by any forum or solutions seem to be non-existent, consult your mobile phone provider to check the capabilities of your phone in running Opera Mini.
