Here comes another release from Opera, as company has just announced the availability of Opera Mini 5.1 for Windows Phone 6.5, Windows Mobile 6, Windows Mobile 5, and Windows Mobile 2003 devices.
Why should you use Opera Mini instead of Opera Mobile? Well, it depends on your handset and your personal preference.
It’s a nice release with its advantages and disadvantages, when compared to Opera Mobile 10. One of such advantages is a “working” “Back” button, click on it and you are instantly surfing the previous page, while in Opera Mobile 10, it takes you back and then reloads the very same page (at least on my device). On the other hand, Opera Mini 5.1 UI appeared to be a little bit sluggish sometimes.
After a couple of requests, I have finally decided to launch a page that is ask.favbrowser.com
What is it all about?
Essentially, it is a web browser questions and answers site. Therefore, as the content starts kicking in, ask.favbrowser.com will serve as a good knowledge base for web browser related issues.
Also, you can earn points for asking and answering questions.
Can you redeem points for any cool prizes?
Not yet, but stay tunned, there will certainly be a couple of them in the near future.

Just as expected, Skyfire Team has submitted their mobile web browser into Apple’s App store and is awaiting approval.
If Apple approves the app, Skyfire would allow iPhone/iPad users to enjoy Flash content that is being transcoded into HTML5 via company servers.
According to press release, Skyfire Team followed Apple guidelines, including the use of a WebKit browser core shared with Safari, and h.264 adaptive streaming.

Out of all potential IE9 “leaks” and concepts, this one is definitely the most plausible.
According to MobileCrunch, a company behind SkyFire will be submitting its mobile web browser to Apple’s app store early next week.
If SkyFire for iPhone/iPad is anything like other platform versions, users will finally be able to watch Flash videos or other media content.
Skyfire Labs, Inc. did not comment on the story.
