Opera 8.5 Beta for Windows Mobile

Finally a decent web browser for the pocket PC

Opera 8.5 Pocket PC (beta) is based on the same core as the Opera 8.5 desktop browser. It is available for both Windows Mobile 2003 and Windows Mobile 5.0 but it also works on older versions. I am running it on my iPAQ 4150 without problems even though it gave a warning during installation. The CAB installer can be downloaed directly to the Pocket PC or via Active Sync.

Main Features:

  • Open URL with auto-complete

  • Zoom

  • Download

  • Multiple Windows

  • Navigation and history

  • Bookmarks

  • Landscape/Portrait Mode

  • Full screen/ Fit to screen

  • Pop-up handler

  • Pad-lock icon on secure sites

  • User preferences

  • Context menu
