Opera launches Touch, a mobile browser aimed at one-handed use

Opera Software today launched a new mobile browser dubbed Touch and upgraded its desktop browser so that the two can better stay in sync.

The Oslo-based browser maker rolled out Opera Touch, an Android application that features one-hand operation and focuses on search, with the latter dominating the screen as users launch Touch.

“The current browsers are not doing their job properly,” argued Maciej Kocemba, an Opera product manager, during an early-Wednesday live-streamed launch event that was made available later as a recording. He then showed how designers had cast the browser’s UI (user interface) so that buttons and functions, including search and tabs, are all within reach of the user’s thumb.

“Unlike in most other browsers, you can now more easily browse and search the web when on the move,” Kocemba added in an accompanying Wednesday post to the company’s blog.
