Opera Touch cannot be used to test local web pages on iphone.

  • When I enter 192.168.1.2:8080 in the address bar in order to make Opera Touch connect wirelessly to the localhost server running on my computer (in order to test websites that I develop), the URL is considered a search query and Opera Touch searches the web instead. This is a usability bug that prevents testing of local PC pages on mobile. I can do such tests in Safari, Firefox and Chrome that work correctly on iphone, but not in Opera Touch (I haven't tried Opera Mini).

  • @antimech As a workaround, if the whole URL is entered, it works, eg: http://192.168.1.2:8080
