We just wrote our mobile Web browser showdown and browsers are already improving -- not that we want to take all the credit, but Opera is releasing Opera Mobile 10 beta for Windows Mobile today.
Version 10 beta improves Opera Mobile's user interface with a sharp, modern look and an early Christmas stocking full of new features.
You can still open multiple pages, but instead of a list, open tabs are smartly presented as tiled thumbnails. It's more like the desktop version of Opera, and includes the SpeedDial feature -- a home screen with thumbnails of your favourite sites -- which is especially useful for a touchscreen phone, since the icons are big and finger-friendly.
You can save passwords and save images offline, and most importantly, sites load quickly and look accurate and clear. There's still no Flash to be seen, though.
Opera 10 beta is already available for Symbian S60, and you can grab either version by visiting m.opera.com/mobile in your phone's existing, probably skankier Web browser.
