    Opera has been my default browser for about 7yrs. Love it. Unfortunately 12.xx (last version) doesn't open hotmail (live account) and some websites don't support it forcing you use IE, FF, GC... I'm forced to use Opera 24.0 now. It works as all others, but I don't like that its based on Google Chromes' thing. And I hate GC because for each tab it "starts" new process in Task Manager

    Opera has closed beta invitations now. We should expect a download link for beta app pretty soon.

    I find UC freezes alot on my M8. Not sure why that is, but I welcome any new browser to windows phone as its just nice to have choices. I've been an opera mini fan from way back, bring it on.

    I'm eagerly awaiting my invitation! I'm testing the Opera browser now on my study laptop and I must say I'm pretty impressed by its performance compared to Firefox, which was pretty laggy with loading pages.

    Just wanted to say that Mozilla did make Firefox for WP, but abandoned it.

    Are you sure ? never heard of that. I know they developed Firefox for Windows 8 but abandoned it later on but that was not for WP.

    I signed up and am eager to give it a try. I don't do much web browsing on my phone but have enjoyed Opera on other phones.

    For some computers, it's actually the processer on some computers.. But yes, opera is the fastest browser, Hence it's nickname "The Speed King".

    I never understood why Opera for Windows had such a low marketshare. It invented pretty much all the features people love about Firefox and Chrome. Be it tabbed browsing, password/history/favorites sync across devices, the first really usable Debugging Tools (DragonFly) and the most customizable settings I've ever seen (enter opera:config in the address bar). The latter is even working on the mobile browsers, which even lets you spoof a custom user agent. Damn sweet.
    I don't like that they shifted away from their own engine though. Webkit sucks.

    The last legacy version of desktop Opera for Windows (Opera 12.x) was so slow I thought I had dialup internet. I couldn't stand the slowness and got rid of it. It was slow without even having multiple tabs open. No other desktop Windows browser ran so slow on my PC.

    Hmm, have you tried to newly install it? I've ever seen Opera be anything but blazing fast. oO

    There is no Opera Mini for PC. That's a mobile only browser. However, if Opera isn't fast on your computer, then there's definitely something wrong. It has never been slow for me, regardless of the version. Unlike the RAM hog that Firefox has become after 3.6. Horrible. Chrome is also fast, but consumes too much RAM imho too.

    Opera was never faster than any other browser on my pc either. I ended up removing it. Now mini on my phone was a different story. I do hope it works well for WP.

    I think chrome is one of the best browser for pc 💻
    Much better than the IE nd Opera
    But Opera is the best browser for Mobile Devices (Android,Symbian)
    They should provide the same experience with wp version

    Well, here it is: Opera Mini browser - beta | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    And it's not that good I'm afraid. All the buttons and stuff are so small, loading of web pages takes FOREVER and it's not that good looking. Opera Mini has never been my favorite, I like the regular Opera browser. The only thing this one does so much better than other browsers are the tabs. They are GREAT!

    But it's a BETA..much can happen. If they fix the rendering and the slowness it might be usable. :)

    Thanks for sharing the link with us. Did you get an e-mail notification from Opera or you found it in the store by yourself ?

    Even I didn't receive an email from Opera yet. Or maybe they are pushing out the mails slowly.
