The Opera Mobile web browser for Android is speedy, customizable, and has a few nifty features like Opera Link technology which lets you synchronize your settings with the desktop version of Opera. But there are a few things Opera Mobile doesn’t currently support, including Adobe Flash and HTML5 video support.

Now it looks like both of those things are on the way. In a blog post this weekend, the Opera team reported that an upcoming version of the Opera Mobile browser for Android would support Adobe Flash on phones that can run Flash. That includes most newer devices running Android 2.2 and up.

The new browser will also be able to handle HTML5 video from sites including YouTube.

While neither of those features are currently available, you can download the latest version of Opera Mobile beta from the Android Market.
