Opera Mobile 12.1 brings new features to an old friend
Can you remember those old days when The HTC Touch Diamond was a solid Windows Mobile choice for a smartphone buyer? Back then, HTC had pre-loaded the Opera Mobile browser on the device which was a good move considering IE's failings back then. Now, we are up to Opera Mobile 12.1, which is now available for free from the Google Play Store.

The latest update for the browser brings some new security features that warn you when a site you are heading to poses a security risk, giving you a heads up so that you can avoid a problem. And the new HTML5 features like HTML5 Drag and Drop and the HTML5 Clipboard API let developers make better connections with your device and allow access to content on the clipboard like text and pictures.

Just one click turns on the Opera Turbo compression technology that saves you data time (and you know how costly overages can be). Even though the software supports four different chipsets like ARM v5 and v7, MIPS and X86, the version you install in your Android phone or tablet is the version that supports your device. That keeps Opera Mobile 12.1 lean and running fast.

For those with older, slower phones, there is always Opera Mini which compresses the data before it reaches your phone, also saving you valuable bytes of data. Opera Mini is also available for free from the Google Play Store.
