Opera has updated its Android browser to Opera 18, which brings a new UI, and also makes it compatible on tablets, and devices with display larger than 7 inch. The new update also brings some improvements in the normal UI for mobile devices. Along with these features, it also has the Off-Road mode that compresses website images and text for faster mobile browsing.

As per Johan Schon of Opera Software,

We poured a great deal of thought into the Opera for Android tablet version. The size of devices and mindset of users make the tablet very different from its smaller cousin, the smartphone, and we have to respect that. In Opera 18 for Android, we have spent hours and hours tweaking, and fiddling with the placement of, even the most minute detail, just to get that top tablet feel.

The new Opera 18 is based completely on Chromium 31, and also has remote debugging feature. You can get it for free from Google Play.
