In this tutorial, you will know – How to open OBML files in Windows PC. OBML stands for Opera Bianary Markup Language. If you save a webpage from Opera Mini, you will get the saved file with .obml extension. You can not open these files in regular desktop version of Opera web browser or in other browsers like Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Internet Explorer.
How OBML works
When a web browser rendering using OBML requests a web page from a server, the following events occurs –
- The web page request is sent to a large, power server farm (like mini.opera-mini.net).
- This server farm retrieves the requested web page, and converts it into OBML format.
- The OBML version of the page is sent to the browsing device, and displayed in the browser that originally made the request (Opera Mini).
