It was announced to the public earlier today that the Opera Mini will be the first ever web browser for Samsung’s smartwatch, the Samsung Gear S and will boast a number of features that make the overall web browsing experience on a smartwatch that much more pleasant.
Being famous for their compression technology, the Opera Mini is efficient at shrinking webpages down to as little as 10 percent of the original webpage. What this means for Gear S users that are using Opera Mini is that webpages will load much quicker as the servers on Opera Mini’s side compress said webpages which translates into using less bandwidth as compared to loading a full webpage.
One feature of the Opera Mini is the Smart Page and how it enables the user to easily work their way around the web browser. The Smart Page gives users their latest updates from the social media platform of their choice as well as all the latest news in one screen. To compliment it’s ease of access, the Opera Mini’s speed dial feature offers users a one-tap-solution to their favourite websites.
Samsung Gear S users can now download Opera Mini 7.5 for free right now.
