Opera Software announced today the availability of its Opera Mini web browser for the Tizen OS-driven Samsung Gear S smartwatch. This way, Opera Mini becomes the first web browser for the Samsung Gear S. This software has over 250 million monthly users across various platforms and is famous for its page compression technology that allows for faster and more energy-efficient browsing.

Opera Mini comes with a rich set of finger-friendly features specially developed for browsing the web on small screens, including Smart Page and the notorious Speed Dial which was introduced by Opera Mini 2.0 back in May, 2006. The Tizen OS version of Opera Mini also includes private browsing for visiting web pages without leaving any traces on the device.

Lars Boilesen, Opera Software CEO, says "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." Opera Mini can be downloaded by Samsung Gear S owners for free via Samsung Gear Apps.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
