87.82 mb seems a bit overkill compared to 8.60 mb Opera Mini. But saying that, Chrome is like a vampire after 130+ mb for just viewing 1 page. My phone keeps harnessing me that my internal 2 gb memory is low so I just stick with Opera Mini and remove this. Be sweet if Opera Mini allowed little more features that allows pages to work properly like "are you a bot" puzzles.
This used to be the best browser for Android and the user interface still outpaces Chrome by a walloping margin. However, Opera has taken to adding tons of features beyond the browser and has for 6 months or so reliably caused my phone to reboot when I use it — I.e., Opera isn't just crashing; it's doing something that triggers an integrity check at the OS level. Until that's repaired, Opera isn't usable.
Latest UI update make speed dial options harder to access. The previous UI was better. Clearing history upon exit should be made an automatic option instead of prompting every time the Exit option is selected. Also, please add an option in the overflow menu to request the desktop website. Newsfeed should be loosely coupled from Opera for those who don't want this feature. Opera should NOT run in the background after exiting. Get rid of the background remote service.
I have previously relied exclusively on Opera but its current RAM usage is simply too high for me to continue using it. With only one or two tabs open the browser frequently crashes and active tabs will have to reload after the screen has been turned off for only a few moments. Very unfortunate this has occurred!
unlike its classic counterpart this version is absolutely terrible at blocking pop-up's. Its method of doing it is to not block anything at all. Unfortunately, Opera Classic does not work on my LG G3, I just get a white screen.
It's been a long time since I tried Opera and I was impressed how much work developers did to make it so fast, elegant and bug-free. After using Opera I don't want to use Google Chrome anymore, Opera is just so much better in about every aspect.
