Owners of the Samsung Gear S smartwatch that have been patiently waiting for a browser to be released for the wrist worn wearable, are sure to be pleased that Opera has today announced the launch of its Opera Mini browser for the smartwatch.
It’s still unknown just how productive surfing the Internet will be on a wrist worn smartwatch with a screen of around 2 inches in size, but if you fancy giving it a go the new Opera Mini smartwatch browser will be available to download and install from the Samsung Gear Apps portal.
The Opera Mini browser for the Samsung Gear S includes plenty of finger-friendly features for navigating the web on small-screen. The Opera Mini Smart Page provides users all their social updates and the latest news on one screen.
Other features include Opera Mini’s Speed Dial features offers website shortcuts as large buttons, enabling Gear S users to reach their favourite sites via a single tap, together with Private browsing that helps removes any trace of the web pages visited on wearable device. Lars Boilesen, CEO of Opera Software explained in a press release today :
“As a lightweight but powerful browser maker, Opera has been a pioneer of making the web accessible across a huge variety of connected devices, such as the internet keyboard, the dual-screen handheld game console, VOIP phones and, now, wearable device. We are thrilled that Opera Mini will be the first browser for Samsung Gear S users to download. This is an exciting, new experience for smart-gear users.”
