Opera browser download for Windows Phone 7.5 mobile phone

It seems like there are huge number of users want to get Opera browser for their Windows phone 7 smartphone. I can see several requests on various sites regarding the same. Me too looking for the same now since you know well the reason behind it. Still I will explain it a bit. Web pages load on Opera browser will not take much amount of data because the pages first loaded on the opera server, compressed and re-directed to your phone?s browser. So there will be a huge amount of compression rate which you could never imagine. I can see almost 70% of compression rate on other phones and it can be easily noticed with the amount of data used during the current session.

However Windows phone 7.5 currently has a best browser from Microsoft and that is IE 9. But users who rely on mobile data connection usually prefer Opera mini as a standard browser on their phone. Yet there is no confirmation from the opera side about when they are going to release. I hope that they are currently working on it. Any leaked information would be very helpful to make us happy.

Re: Opera browser download for Windows Phone 7.5 mobile phone

As far as I know that there is no official opera mini browser for Windows phone 7 or 7.5 mango update. It is really big drawback for those who are real fans of opera browser but personally I don?t like that browser. Luckily some has managed to port the Opera Mobile 10 Windows Mobile app to Windows Phone 7. I don?t know how he did that but he had succeeded to port it and browse. But the problem is this port technique or hack only works on fully-unlocked ROMs.

Re: Opera browser download for Windows Phone 7.5 mobile phone

As I am a opera fan, I love to hear that finally IE on Windows phone 7.5 got a competitor. With this hack, I hope that the Microsoft and opera might start an agreement to bring a compatible mini browser to this platform very soon. Otherwise the competition could lead to the end of IE 9 on Windows phone 7. Basically I have experienced browsing on IE 9 on my Samsung Omina and I have found that pages take too much time to load even with 3G connection. It is really unacceptable.

The users who have ported the Opera Mini on Windows phone 7 cannot browser through landscape mode. It is one drawback which I found recently but I hope that XDA will bring fix for this very soon. Make sure to use Opera MIni .xap file. To unlock the ROM, flash the phone with DFT ROMs.

Re: Opera browser download for Windows Phone 7.5 mobile phone

It looks really strange that how opera have been unofficially ported to Windows phone since it is not a open source browser. If it was it could be previously managed to get into Windows phone 7. A little hacking is truly needed here and also a unlocked ROM. Without this you cannot port but unlocking ROM could ruin your phone. It will also void the warranty on your phone.
