    New features:
    - skins
    - ability to use US-based proxy/rendering servers (faster!)
    - "video" works! it doesn't specify it as Flash, but it must be as you can now watch YouTube videos
    - expanded Opera Link syncing. Not just bookmarks, now notes also

    :^/ Does the new beta version hang the phone less often? Opera Mini v.4.1 just froze my Cricket Tréo 755p as I first tried to reply to this post....

    I'm not sure as it's never hung on my debranded Nokia 6133.

    On an unrelated note, Opera Mini users can enter "opera:config" in the address bar to access hidden settings.

    the coolest thing in new opera mini is, now you can watch streaming videos.

    a review which i wrote

    i think it may be the most popular free mobile phone application.
    if you have experience with opera mini, you may feel it is faster than your default mobile phone browser. also it has another great quality ,that is it can decrease image quality and allows fast browsing.
    in previous version (opera mini 4.1) mainly they have introduced two new features. one is web page saving feature. you can save your web pages in your phone memory and open with opera mini browser. second one is the searching function. like internet explorer or firefox, you can search specific word in a web page and highlight it.
    now lets lockat this new version.
    the main disadvantage in opera mini was, you cant watch streaming videos like youtube in previous versions. but the new beta version allows you this feature.
    also file downloading feature has improved in new opera mini.
    you can customize the skin in this new operamini version.also it allows you to synchronize your notes

    But I was able to do youtube with 4.1! Then it started messing up right before 4.2 was released, and yes browsing is much much faster.

    What it's able to do now is redirect the videos to open in your media player on your device as long as you have the settings/ your phone is capable of doing video streaming... on my phone, it's RealPlayer... So, it still doesn't open Flash content IN the browser, like say Skyfire, but it's still a pretty great feature... and it only handles those videos which have been mobile-optimized such as the YouTube Mobile site... still, it's a welcome added feature!...
