Better fingering through Opera Fingertouch

So, Opera is the best browser. Ever. Evar, even.

Firefox is too slow, and contains memory leaks. Only communist fools and / or Osama sympathisers use it.

Now we’ve got those ultimate truths out of the way, check this out:

You need to upgrade your Flash Player and/or enable JavaScript in your browser to view this tutorial.

For those of you who can’t view (or can’t be bothered viewing) the video, basically it’s some magic they have added to the already-fairly-magic mobile edition of their web browser which makes clicking links and filling out forms easier. If it detects that ‘selectables’– being links, dropdowns, input fields etc– are so close together as to be difficult to select it brings them up in a lightbox-type thing that makes them larger and easier to select.

It looks like a pretty neat idea, and if I surfed the net on my phone I would be downloading this sucker and checking it out.

    I didn’t know you had a touch screen phone … very nice and simple solution they have. Opera mini is indeed great.

    I still crave Chrome on nix.

    I don’t. I suppose that sentence should have read “and if I surfed the net on a touch-screen phone”.
