of course its multi.. i been using the opera 5 beta 2 for a long time now and you bet you will enjoy this .. one of the good feature is you can even open up to 10 windows at the same time .. i hope you will enjoy it too
one thing about the opera mini 5 and opera mobile that really pisses me off is how difficult it is to get to the apostrophe button especially with touch screen phones. Apart from that, opera rocks!!
I hope it does have multi touch
invite00, 11 Mar 2010does this mean it will be faster than other browsers to load pages when in 2G ?Yes, it IS veeery much faster...
King of Kings, 11 Mar 2010If you do want to talk about music well you cant go wrong with bluegrassO.o
If you do want to talk about music
well you cant go wrong with bluegrass
King of Kings, 11 Mar 2010Really? Because I want to talk about phones, and not music? ok buddy.This is not about music at all buddy
Barcode, 11 Mar 2010You shouldnt even be aloud near a phone after the comment you postedReally?
Because I want to talk about phones, and not music?
opera is a kind of music!
this website makes no sense
i would like to speak about the phones please!

"Another app to kill the iphone"
LOL, only another 90,000 to go until Android catches up. And Opera is coming to the iphone as well.
Accept it people, the iphone is the best software supported phone in the world. Unless one of the big phone companies release something innovative and support just one OS, then this won't change for a long time.
And yes! Another app to kill the iPhone!
Opera Mini talks about speed and nothing else. And its native, it means it will not lag on the Droid, thus it will become faster.
Opera Mini is the fastest mobile browser, speedier than the most browser.
Oh yeah, did I mention about speed?
I should get paid by this, but no. Opera Mini is FREE!
I hope Skyfire follow soon.
been using Beta 5 for a while on the BB Bold 9700 and think it is a really good browser.
Anonymous, 11 Mar 2010I am using Firefox & Fennec on N900. Have used Opera Mini5 on my 5800 earlier... it's a br... moreYa I use Firefox on N900 as well. :) Opera mini is pretty sweet I use to use it on my touch pro and now I can download it on my Droid.
This is great. No slow Java. Excellent option when there is no 3G or WiFi or unlimited data plan.
I've just installed it on my Hero and so far it works great! No glitches, no lags, no poor graphics whatsoever. Oh, and FYI - It's really fast!!!
THIS A LITTLE ABOUT THE HISTORY OF MULTITOUCH
The use of touch technology to control electronic devices predates the personal computer. Early synthesizer and electronic instrument builders like Hugh Le Caine and Bob Moog experimented with using touch-sensitive capacitance sensors to control the sounds made by their instruments. IBM began building the first touch screens in the late '60's, and, in 1972, Control Data released the PLATO IV computer, a terminal used for educational purposes that employed single-touch points in a 16x16 array as its user interface.
Multi-touch technology began in 1982, when the University of Toronto's Input Research Group developed the first human-input multi-touch system. The system used a frosted-glass panel with a camera placed behind the glass. When a finger or several fingers pressed on the glass, the camera would detect the action as one or more black spots on an otherwise white background, allowing it to be registered as an input. Since the size of a dot was dependent on pressure (how hard the person was pressing on the glass), the system was somewhat pressure-sensitive as well.
In 1983, Bell Labs at Murray Hill published a comprehensive discussion of touch-screen based interfaces. In 1984, Bell Labs engineered a touch screen that could change images with more than one hand. In 1985, the University of Toronto group including Bill Buxton developed a multi-touch tablet that used capacitance rather than bulky camera-based optical sensing systems.
A breakthrough occurred in 1991, when Pierre Wellner published a paper on his multi-touch “Digital Desk”, which supported multi-finger and pinching motions.
Various companies expanded upon these inventions in the beginning of the twenty-first century. Mainstream exposure to multi-touch technology occurred in the year 2007, when Apple unveiled the iPhone and Microsoft followed after with the unveiling of their Microsoft Surface table-top touch platform.
