Opera Software have launched their latest Android-based web browser, Opera Mini 7 for Android, after they previewed the browser at this years Mobile World Congress. This is perfect timing, as just weeks ago Android's 'robot' browser had overtaken Opera to stake claim to the top mobile Web browser for the first time.

The new release should help propel Opera into some new, uncharted territory as they're already able to brag they have an insane 160 million monthly Opera Mini users now, which is up from the already-great 140 million back in November of 2011.

 

The company also released Opera Mobile 12 for Android recently, which is more of a full-fledged mobile web browser compared to the cut-down Mini. Opera Mini uses the company's proprietary server compression technology to compress content before it gets to your phone, where it renders the websites on Opera's servers before hitting your phone.
