How to use Opera Mini on Your PC

I have been using Opera from the past two years and I feel it’s a great browser. I wanted to use Opera Mini in my cell phone but unfortunately for some reason it never worked. Today I came across an awesome article which allows you to run Opera Mini on your PC! Now the question is why would anyone use Opera Mini when there’s Opera browser for PC. Well, the answer is simple, if you have a slow internet connection like 56k internet connection or lesser then you’re benefited from this. Using Opera Mini you can load web pages way faster than any other browser.

Follow the below instructions carefully to use Opera Mini on your pc:
1. Download the microemulator from here and unzip the package to a specific folder.
2. Now download Opera Mini .jar and .jad files from here and save them in the same folder as it will be easy to browse.

3. Double click on “microemulator.jar” to run it. If it doesn’t start then you need to type “java -jar microemulator.jar” in a console.

4. Go to Options > Select device> Add…, now navigate to “microemulator/devices” and select “microemu-device-resizable.jar”.

5. Select the “Resizable device” profile you added and click on “Set as default”.

6. Click on the “Resize” button in the lower right corner and enter your preferred size.
7. Go to File> Open JAD and choose the Opera Mini .jad which you had downloaded in Step2.
8. “Opera Mini” will now appear in the list of applications you can start.
9. Click “Start” to launch it.

    Hi. Great and clear instructions. I have a few doubts:

    If I click on microemulator.jar it does not run and I have to open a command window everytime to run Opera Mini on the emulator.

    Is there any other way to go about it?

    Can I have a shortcut on the desktop so that I do not have to open the command windows each time I want to run Opera Mini?

    Can I run other applications made for the mobile?

    Thanks

    too long procedure 2 try!!!
    does it essentially need java runtime environment installed???
    y dont u zip all dis n offer for download!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.bizzntech.com Joel

    Yeah its long but tutorial is easy if you read it carefully. Just spend a little while and thats it…
    I didn’t zip all of them together as it will result in confusion.
    The software uses java and hence you need java runtime environment…

    If you resize microEmulator to “resizable device” and make it full screen you encounter a problem when trying to write in a text or search box, you can write in it but if you click “ok” to finish writing it doesn’t work, well this can be solved by clicking the F2 button I found out.

    Hi. Just like to say this is perfect information, it really helped me to find a way of testing websites for the handheld media type. Great tutorial.

    (I don’t think I can find any way to improve it, although there is a slight difference with the MicroEmulator now where the file menu has the option “Open Midlet File” instead of open Jad, but it works in the same way.)
