Opera has graduated version 4.2 of its Opera Mini cell phone web browser from its beta state to being officially offered and supported. Opera Mini is compatible with nearly any cell phone on the market that runs Java applications, and a special version for Android-powered smartphones, such as the T-Mobile G1, is also available.
New features in version 4.2 include a new set of visual skins, as well as enhanced support for Opera Link, which synchronizes bookmarks and notes from the desktop Opera web browser to Opera Mini. Opera Mini v4.2 is also able to take advantage of a new server farm in the U.S., which should work to improve speeds for all users.
To download Opera Mini v4.2, simply point your phone's web browser to http://mini.opera.com. The browser is free, but obviously uses your phone's data connection.
