Opera Mini has become the first web browser on Samsung’s Gear S, the Tizen-based wearable device platform. Users of this new smart watch will be able to do web browsing from their wrists, Opera Software announced today.
Opera Mini is known for its compression technology that shrinks the size of webpages to uptill 10% to provide faster browsing experience on mobile devices.
In addition, the Opera Mini browser includes finger-friendly features. The Smart Page gives users all their social updates and the latest news on one screen. Opera Mini’s Speed Dial features website shortcuts as large buttons, enabling Gear S users to reach their favorite sites in a single tap. Private browsing removes any trace of the web pages visited on the wrist-gazer’s device.
Lars Boilesen, CEO of Opera Software said “We are thrilled that Opera Mini will be the first browser for Samsung Gear S users to download. This is an exciting, new experience for smart-gear users.”
Samsung Gear S owners will be able to download Opera Mini from Samsung Gear Apps for free.
