Opera claims to have boosted mobile surfing speeds by up to 50% with a new version of its Mini browser.
The company attributes the speed boost to an upgrade of its servers, which compress normal web pages by up to 90% to make them suitable for viewing on mobile phones with limited data connections.

In our brief tests of the Opera Mini 4.1 beta this morning, we noticed sites such as BBC News and Facebook loaded appreciably faster than in previous versions, although the 50% figure seems a little optimistic at first glance.

I run Opera Mini on my Tilt, and have been very impressed by its ease of use and ability to make just about any web page usable - even framed pages that choke IE.

Off to download...
