Opera today launched the Opera 18 browser for Android tablets, the company aims to bring a “top-notch web experience” through its latest creation. It says that special attention has been given to the design during the development process, as the dynamics of browsing the internet are far different on a tablet than they are on a mobile phone, and Opera has a lot of experience in making browsers for mobile phones. That’s why they didn’t just scale up the smartphone interface, they “tailored” aspects of the user experience for Android tablets.
Opera 18 for Android tablets comes with a feature called Discover, which the company calls a “one-stop shop” for news, sports and feature stories. Users can access fresh content from their region by swiping from right to left on Speed Dial, they’ll be able to customize content which shows up in the feed. Off-Rode mode minimizes data usage by compressing data traffic, thus allowing the user to go online even on a crowded public Wi-Fi connection. Speed Dial consists of large, square buttons which can be customized to add most frequently visited websites. Opera 18 web browser for Android tablets is live now, it can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store.
