Opera Mini for Android, now with native web browser behaviour

opera-mini-android-2015

Opera Mini for Android has had a facelift, and it now behaves a lot like a full-featured Android browser. No longer do you have to choose between the efficiency of Opera Mini or the look of the full-sized older brother. Now, the core features more closely align with those of Opera proper, with redesigned Speed Dial shortcuts, private browsing mode and a customisable display which includes tablet sized features.

Of course, if you’re an Opera Mini user, you may well be using it because it allows you to scrimp on data usage, so there’s a Mini-specific data usage gauge that shows how much data you’ve saved using Opera Mini’s data saving features.

The app was not found in the store. 🙁

If you’re on a low-data mobile plan, Opera Mini might be worth taking a fresh look at.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.
