The one thing I love most about my P800 is Opera. Now Opera's web browser is available on Windows Mobile devices too.

Opera manages to fit a staggering amount of polish and functionality into handheld devices. Something I appreciate
in particular are the easy-to-read and good-looking antialiased fonts.

The small screen rendering mode is especially handy in making sense of web pages designed for bigger screens. Here are two screenshots from my P800. The first is in normal mode, and the second with "fit to screen" selected.

The small screen mode may not preserve the beauty of the design, but it certainly makes a site a lot more usable.

Are you a Windows Mobile user? Will having Opera make any difference to you?
