Opera Mini 5.1 for Android released [Video]

Opera has pushed out a new version of their eponymous browser for Android.  Available free in the Android Market, Opera Mini 5.1 uses the company's server-side compression system to shrink down requested webpages by up to 90-percent; that means smaller download sizes, preserving your data allowance, and faster loading. There's also tabbed browsing, a password manager, bookmarks and Speed Dial, and you can now set the Opera Mini browser to be the default (unlike the previous beta).  The company has tweaked page layouts to suit the new breed of big-screen Android devices, too.
