Review from Eduard Mihai Puiu
Very good and stable browser that uses less data traffic
It WAS a good browser, or so I thought, until I got to one of Opera's web sites. I had to turn data saving and ad blocking OFF to get rid of a message saying that Opera Mini was not compatible with that site, and that I should use another browser. What an absolutely wonderful way of promoting the browser. As soon as I find another browser that's actually decent, Opera will be off my phone and never again installed on any device I own. I'll also recommend something else to anyone who asks.
It's a compact browser with a built-in RSS-reader but it won't open a saved HTML file like the stock browser and, now, THIS APP IS REALLY, REALLY STARTING TO SUCK! Ads are now rather frequent and intrusive and they're full-page. With the latest update, it is oftentimes the case that the speed dial displays incompletely. It's definitely time to consider chucking this app!
Opera Mini was once my favorite browser. After the new owners took over, it has gotten steadily worse with removals of layouts, insertions of ads, and a built-in VPN that tells every online store I'm in a different country with less inventory available that doesn't use dollars. I've switched back to Chrome until Vivaldi for Android finally gets released.
Update 2: as of Dec 8 the scroll bar still does not work. This on a Pixel 2 with Oreo 8.0. Update as of Oct 2017 The Opera mini's scroll bar has stopped working. Phone is now on Oreo. Yesterday, Nougat 7.1.1 dropped to my phone and Opera Mini has not behaved properly since. I'm about to try my next reinstall.
It's a nice fast browser with low data use and that keeps tabs well but I don't trust their ad block and now the browser itself shows full screen ads sometimes when opening. Apparently Opera now needs to reload open tabs of you haven't used them in a while. That never used to be the case. Probably best to find a different browser.
Great App!!! Good Work, but with the recent update it keeps on giving news notifications, even while I switched all notifications off. There's one you cant switch off and it is very disturbing. Can you please fix that, it's annoying, cause the news feeds sometimes come through 2 o'clock in the mornings. Further on this is a great app to have.
