Opera Mini will be available on Samsung Gear S

The Opera browser will let you surf the web from the smartwatch and has finger-friendly features that should work well on smaller screens.


Here's one more reason why the Samsung's Galaxy Gear S will keep you looking at your wrist -- the Opera Mini web browser will be available for download from the Gear Apps store.

According to Opera, the Mini is the first web browser for the Samsung smartwatch based on the Tizen platform. Opera Mini will have finger-friendly controls that work on the watch's small 2-inch curved Super AMOLED display.

These include Smart Page, which lets users look at all their social updates and news, and Speed Dial (also found on the mobile and desktop versions), which lets users get to a web page with a quick tap. The browser also has a private mode.
