Default Opera Mini 6.5 released

Please Login to Remove!

Opera Mini 6.5 has just been released. I've been playing with it this morning, and have had no surprises.

The coolest new feature: it can show you your data savings by using Mini's compression (Opera menu > help > data usage). Very nice if you have metered internet usage. On a typical vBulletin board without a mobile skin, I'm getting just over 90% data savings. Even using a mobile skin, I'm still getting over 50% data savings.

A protocol choice is back, helpful for a lot of folks to need to set on http. And a new bookmark shortcut is convenient for touch devices.

New features, lifted shamelessly from Opera Mini Forum:
Quote:
Opera Mini 6.5 for Java and BlackBerry has the following new features:

Data usage
We have added a new entry in the help menu that shows you approximately how much data you have saved by using Opera Mini compared to loading the full page.

Bookmark star
For those that have touch devices we have added a convenient way to bookmark a page. Just click the star in the address field and then "Add to Bookmarks".

Pinch-zoom for BlackBerry
If you have a BlackBerry touch device running OS 6.0 or better, you can now use pinch zoom.

Protocol setting
In the 6.1 release we removed the protocol setting. This setting has now returned so that you can choose to either use HTTP or let the client choose automatically.

Saved pages
We have improved the handling of old saved pages. You can now delete or re-download pages saved with previous versions of Opera Mini.
