OperaMini4.2-logo Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Libya Are The Top 3 Arab Countries Using Opera Mini, The Mobile Web Browser.Opera Mini is one of the world’s most popular Mobile Web browsers with over 20 million users. It comes with many distinguished features such as: It brings you the full web experience with full web view instead of the standard mobile view on your handset. And it is about two to three times faster than any other mobile browser because Opera software process and compress each webpage request from Opera Mini on its servers.
