Freebie of the day: Opera’s new mobile browser

Norwegian browser maker Opera today released a new version of its great Opera Mini for mobile phones.

The company said version 4.2 will be 30 percent faster in the U.S. because of a new server park, although wouldn’t that also speed the performance of previous versions?

Anyway, Opera Mini 4.2 also adds new language support, skins for customizing its appearance and improve mobile video performance. It also works with the Android-based G1 from T-Mobile.

Opera says 21 million people used Mini to browse 5 billion pages in October, up 490 percent from October 2007.
