Opera for Android with WebKit engine now out of beta

Opera released a brand new version of the Opera browser for Android. Unlike the previous version that ran on the Presto engine, the new version was running on the more ubiquitous WebKit engine and also brought with it several new features and a new UI.

The browser is now finally out of beta stage and available for download on the Play Store. The new engine is fast and responsive and works well across websites better than the old engine. The new features include a new tab mode that shows thumbnails of your tabs on top of the page, new speed dial mode that allows you to rearrange your speed dials and even put them in folders, off-road mode that compresses data significantly before sending it to your device, automatic text wrap, improved download manager, customizable navigation bar that can be docked at the top or the bottom of the screen and a discover mode for finding curated content right in the browser without having to go look for it.
