Me too..posting this over it. Works much smoother and loads things like full facebook page along with chat and games just like on desktop.
I wish they added a bit more customizations though. Interface haven't changed at all.
But still, now it's the best browser overall. Maxthon browser comes in at second!

Why would I use Opera Mobile on an Android phone when Opera Mini does the same things but with a fuller experience? Unless I'm in a data crunch or a very poor (or slow) coverage area, anyway
I use Opera Mini and Skyfire myself

You seem little clueless with this post.
It is Opera Mobile that gives full web experience and it is people with data crunch and poor/slow coverage that use Opera Mini due to higher compression and server side rendering.

And yet they still haven't added WebGL support for the desktop version of Opera.
This confuses me.

lolz with this update i can play all facebook and google+ games without slowdown on sgs2. Not that i would want to cause i hate those , but its a first for mobile browser.

Seems i could have started G+ Hangout from browser if i had video chat add-on.
