Opera Mobile 12.1 released for Android with support for new web standards, extra speed and some new tricks

    Chrome will not be my browser of choice unless it supports Flash, which I know will not happen now. Dolphin and xScope are the browsers for me. Especially xScope with Flash built right in. Works like a dream in Jelly Bean without needing to root/modify the phone. Yes I know Flash is getting phased out slowly, but there are still many sites that use it so until it’s 100% dead then I need my mobile browser to support it.

    Best browser for both mobile and desktop.

    I cant get chrome becuase it seems so clunky to use bookmarks can someone please tell me if there is a way to get to them other than hitting the menu key and selecting it from the menu? The built in browser has the slide in gesture which I much prefer

    Sorry, Tom. Don’t think there’s a way. Can someone tell me if there’s a way to shut off swiping between tabs in Chrome? It’s very annoying.

    As for Opera, I’ve always been a fan of the desktop version, but had trouble settling into the last few iterations of the mobile version. I look forward to giving it another go.

    Dolphin is still the king in mobile browsing imo. I use opera for my laptop and have for years, but the mobile version falls short compared to dolphin.

    Opera now but not forever……..who owns them again?

      Opera Browser belongs to Opera Software ASA and I disagree. Opera is a pioneer since their debut in 1997. Google is their source of revenue because Google is the default search engine of Opera. Last time I checked, Google’s revenue is still growing each year.

    I really like opera mobile, but they always re-add their hit to my fv on updates and that pisses me off to no-end.
