Opera just released the new beta version 3 of Opera Mini at their Rock Opera event. The new version sports some nifty new features including transition effects and bookmark synchronization. The biggest impression the new beta gave me was the speed at which it now lets you view pages. The innovative zoom feature is super fast and the transition between pages is zippy especially when you are going back a page. It seems that they have done some serious rework on the code to make it such a performer on the BlackBerry. I still have to complain that things are not all pretty. They still need to work on incorporating more keyboard shortcuts beyond the keypad. They have implemented the spacebar to go down a page but they still do not support hitting “B” to go to the bottom of the page and such but hopefully that will be fixed in future revisions. It also has some great support of RSS for reading your favorite feeds on the road but it does not prefetch them for you and cache them locally like Viigo.
