Opera released version 3.0 of their mini mobile browser today. I’m a-gonna have to download it. I’ve always been an advocate of developing sites that were mobile friendly (provided they are sites that a mobile user would find useful.)
They are of course dropping the “web 2.0” buzzwords, but have some added nifty features such as secure connections, which makes me little less hesitant to use my Razr to check my bank account (that is, if my bank had a mobile friendly website…which they don’t.)
Perhaps this latest version of Opera will do for the mobile web what Netscape did for the standard web: create a positive feedback loop where more users creates more demand which creates more sites which creates more users.
Anyway, here is the link.
