Our Review:

Opera browser for mobile is still the browser to beat for all round performance, reliability and ease of use. The experience Opera have from their desktop browser shines through with simple touches that make all the difference to an excellent browsing experience.

When scrolling in a long page, a simple 'jump to top/bottom' navigation button will pop up. If clicking on an area with several links, the browser will automatically zoom in to allow you to choose the correct link.

Along with that it has the most reliable Flash support in my experience, multi-tab browsing, a simple user interface, full bookmark and browsing history support, a built in download manager, the ability to save a page for future reading, and Opera's 'Turbo' feature, using their servers to compress your pages and images to save on download times and data costs. If you only have one browser on your Android device, it should be this one.

The only criticisms are slightly confusing management of multiple tabs and a lack of add-ons, along with no quickly accessible full screen mode.
