Does such thing even exist?
Now here’s a short story for you. If you want to know how exactly Opera web browser could look to the outsiders who (somehow) found the blog post and checked the official site comments: unmoderated spammers heaven.
Just take a look at this:
Now here is a pretty fantastic update for anyone that is running Opera on their Android phones or tablets and as it turns out, not only did it add new features, but also removed one of them: Opera Mini server side compression.
The good news? It was replaced with Opera Turbo, a much better and more compatible version of the site compression technology.
In addition to that, Opera for Android now also supports tab sync across all other Opera instances, meaning that you will always be able to continue reading or browsing the web without thinking what device to use.
And last but definitely not least? Automatic text wrap (yay)!
Includes refreshed user interface.
If you are rocking a phone with Android 2.3 or higher then here’s a neat gift for you: a new and improved version of Opera Mini.
And the main selling feature for this release? A redesigned user interface with the Android like native look and feel.
What if you are using a phone with Android 2.2 or older os build? Well, the good news is that you can still grab a classic Opera Mini from here. The bad news? It will no longer be updated.

How is it called? A tab cycler. Basically, you can now cycle through the tabs with keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl + 1/2 for Windows and Linux and ⌘ + ⇧Shift + ←/→ for Mac). In addition to that, Recently Closed tabs will now appear in the same area with its own section as well as other devices tabs.
Appears to be incompatible with a lot of modern web pages.
From what sounds like an awesome update to all the Windows Phone users out there, it turned out to be quite a disappointment, at least for some of us.
