Opera's Android browser gets dedicated support for bigger tablets

After jumping aboard the WebKit train and launching a dedicated browser for the iPad, Opera’s now turned its attention to Android tablets. With the release of Opera 18 for Android, the company is quick to note that it didn’t just update and scale up its smartphone browser: navigation and menu buttons have been strategically placed to where your fingers naturally rest and its improved Discover feature lets you swipe between newspaper and magazine content that has been matched to your interests and location. Like with all its browsers, Opera’s Android tablet app comes complete with data-saving capabilities. Off-Road mode is designed to help you stay online when you’re on a public Wi-Fi connection or trying to reduce your data usage, basically when connectivity is less than ideal. Underpinned by Google’s Chromium 31 framework, Opera’s big-tablet app is available on Play Store right now — check the source to grab it.
