Opera Mini 4.2 is done beta testing. New in this proxy-based, data traffic-reducing mobile Java web browser: pick one of seven color schemes, send videos from m.youtube.com straight to RealPlayer on your phone, choose from over 90 language versions, and you can surf faster than before because of Opera's extra proxy servers in their new server park.
Changed during the beta test:
- bug fixes and language corrections
- cyrillic in the small fonts
Sending YouTube videos from Opera Mini to RealPlayer and getting them to play works OK on 3G, but on Wi-Fi I have to go into the RealPlayer settings to tell it which wireless network to use. And when I switch to another Wi-Fi connection I have to tell RealPlayer about it again.
