OperaMini is a program for your cellphone that lets you use almost any website on your mobile / cellphone.

Should Opera Mini not work on your phone / cellphone model or what not, then these other Opera Mini-like options might come in handy.

mob385.com OR midlet.org

These pages contain links to the alterntive HTML j2me browser programs you need.
The links above host the .jar’s, because it’s hard to find working links at the respective original sites below.


  • CellHtml – CellHtml is a cHTML browser for browsing of iMode sites. This new version contains an impressive list of added features including memory caching, bookmarks, animation and HTTP CGI forms.
  • jBrowser For J2ME – jBrowser for J2ME is WML 1.2 compliant WAP browser for J2ME enabled devices. Support for Images (WBMP and PNG).
  • MidScape – MIDScape is a browser that allows you to access content encoded in the MML markup language – an application of XML somewhat similar to HTML.
  • WebViewer – Reqwireless WebViewer is a fast HTML Web browser for Java -enabled (J2ME) mobile devices. WebViewer gives you access to the same Web content on your Java-capable cellphone or PDA that you get with any desktop browser. WebViewer is not a WAP browser; it’s an HTML browser.
