Today Opera announced Opera Mini 5 Beta, a new version of its mobile browser for feature phones. The new version of Opera Mini has a redesigned look and feel and offers a number of improvements. Highlights include tabbed browsing, which lets users have multiple web sites open at any time; support for touch screen devices and standard non-touch devices; a password manager that will save all user passwords; and Opera Speed Dial, which serves as a set of visual bookmarks to users' favorite or most-used sites. The beta is a free download from Opera Software.

Where is the custom search option?

Anyone know how to add more search services?

Version 4.2 had the "add search" thing when I opened a text box. No more?

Just downloaded Opera Mini 5 Beta this morning and so far it is great! Soo fast and love the speed dial feature on the homepage along with the little google search box. Best browser so far. Loaded a full website in less than 10 seconds with my BB 9530 Storm and I didnt even have EVDO. The flick scrolling could be a little bit better but other than that from what i've played with it is amazing!
I can't figure out HOW to paste a link into the address bar in Opera Mini 5!!! It's very frustrating. I copy links in my emails into the address bar in Opera Mini 4.2 and I can't figure it out in the new version.

Much Better than Opera Mini 4 on BlackBerry

It doesn't ask you for network permission every time you start it, actually makes use of the "BB" key.

Takes a few seconds to get used to it, but runs great.

But no Opera Link? I want to synchronize my speed dial!
Ah, the fun of impulse posting. I really wish they'd integrate more BlackBerry shorcuts, like space to scroll down, T to jump to the top, etc... Using the number pad is a strain...

Opera Link isn't available in Beta, by the way.

It does run smoo...
