Opera Mini update hits the iPad

Opera Software has updated the Opera Mini web browser with iPad support this morning. Having spent some time with the app, MacStories praised visual tabs allowing you to switch between multiple pages by tapping their previews, smooth UI animations, background loading of tabs and a handy menu with rich bookmarks, history, settings and sharing options with Facebook and Twitter social integration and My Opera support.

The updated browser also includes the souped up interface with the iPhone 4 Retina Display support. Grab it now, Opera Mini is a universal binary available free on the App Store. When Opera Mini debuted on the iPhone last March, it came down in history as the first major iOS browser from a third-party, following a change of heart from Apple’s previous policy of prohibiting any web browser on the handset other than its own.
