Opera for Android now going turbo, text-wrapping and tab-syncing

There are a certain number of users that would much rather use browsers other than the big 3 (Chrome, Firefox, Safari) on their mobile devices for various reasons. One of the "lesser known" but also popular ones is Opera for Android. The latest update to the app is bringing you several improvements, including Opera Turbo, the ability to sync tabs across all the Opera browsers you're using, and text-wrapping those pesky websites that are still not optimized for mobile (seriously, what are you waiting for, websites?).

Opera browser update: sync mobile and desktop

While most people use either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox (and hey, some are still loyal to Internet Explorer!) as their default browser for both mobile and desktop, there are also some out there that have a small but loyal following. Opera is one of those secondary apps which started out as a mobile alternative to the main browser powerhouses, but now has 300 million mobile users and 55 million desktop users. The latest update now gives you the ability to sync between devices.

The Opera Mini for Android has just been updated. The web browser has been available for Android devices since 2009 but it's receiving a lighter look and feel just before the year ends.
