Opera can be downloaded from Getjar

Consumers recycling mobile phones may wish to consider downloading one of the latest applications following a report detailing its popularity.

According to GetJar, an online software resource that claims to be the largest carrying independent status, the Opera Mini browser is now more popular than ever with its users.

The site explained the mobile web widget has now been downloaded over 25 million times making it the most accessed application by handset users of all time.

Rolf Assev, chief strategy officer of Opera Software, said the relationship the company shares with the Getjar app store is integral to the success of Mini.

"It proves that our vision of providing a browser that works on almost all phones will give millions a better way to access the web," he concluded.

Opera Mini can serve as an alternative to Microsoft's Internet Explorer software on Windows-enabled smartphones.
