Opera has updated its browser app for Android with tablet user-interface and bug-fixes. Based from Chromium 31, the version 18 of Opera for Android is now available for download via Google Play.
“We poured a great deal of thought into the Opera for Android tablet version. The size of devices and mindset of users make the tablet very different from its smaller cousin, the smartphone, and we have to respect that. In Opera 18 for Android, we have spent hours and hours tweaking, and fiddling with the placement of, even the minute details, just to get that top tablet feel,” writes Johan Schön, SVP for Mobile Consumer Browsers, Opera Software in a blog post.
To remind you, Opera for Android includes features like Discover, Speed Dial and Off-Road mode, which make access to content easier.
