Opera Mobile for Android updated, improved Honeycomb support and security fixes

Android has never been short on third-party web browsers, but a lot of people were very happy when Opera Mobile was launched last year. With smooth scrolling and pinch-to-zoom, accurate desktop-style rendering and Opera Sync support, it quickly became a viable alternative to the stock Android browser.

The company has updated Opera Mobile today with a host of new features and bug fixes, many of them pertaining to security issues that were discovered in the last release. Additional support has been implemented for Honeycomb tablets, which should allow for more accurate upscaling on larger screens. Full changelog after the break.
