Beta Test This! Opera Mini 5

Ok, so maybe you like the stock Android browser but aren’t necessarily in love with it.  Good thing for you the platform is flexible and you’re not stuck with just one option!  Hot on the heels of January’s 4.2, Opera has just released their Mini 5 beta browser into the Android Market.

Opera’s Mini is a feature-rich browser that does a lot of the heavy lifting on the server side.  Data is compressed by Opera before it even hits your phone so pages load considerably faster. While Mini works fine on phones with less horsepower or smaller screens, it really shines on handsets like the Nexus One. Tabs and the new Speed Dial feature play well with the bright 3.7-inch AMOLED screen.

    I really like it and how fast it loads, the problem I have is it seems to be telling google reader something different than the stock browser does. In the stock browser I get really nice preloaded pages to scroll through with the touch screen. In Opera mini it seems to think I have an older phone with a keypad and so assigns a number button to each item on my list. Is there any ways to get my old view of google reader back?
