Hi! We are happy to announce the release of Opera Mini 21 and will be available on Google Play over the next few days.

We’ve focused on the start page in this release. You’ll probably notice the start page has been simplified and the news articles are more visible. Your bookmarks and saved pages are still safe. They have been moved in the main menu.

In addition to the UI changes, we've also improved the start-up sequences. Opera Mini 21 should be a little bit faster to start-up.

Please take Opera Mini for a spin and leave a comment with any feedback you may have for us.

You can get Opera Mini for Android here: http://opr.as/r2S

        Somethings wrong with the "forward/cancel" load button. Its orientation is messed up. The "X" looks like a plus and the "forward" points from bottom left to top right.

          So smooth and I notice that it's become a little bit faster. Opera is heart. Opera is love.

            The in built video player system for streaming is too poor. There has only 3 options. One for 'Rotate Screen' another is 'Volume Up/Down' & the other is maybe 'Brightness Control' It will be better if there has "Fit to Screen" option. Because while streaming those videos wasn't match with my display screen. I see a sharp zoom view. And there has no option to change it. Also if there has options like "Rewind forward & backward by swiping on the screen" & "Video Resume" feature is will be also great. While loading a video for streaming there has no option to see how much time it will need to fully load the video. Add a feature like UC Browser where we can able to see the percentage of the loaded video. Thus we can able to guess how much time remaining to load the following video. The in built media player is still so poor. & after download a video then try to open it from downloaded list why Opera Mini plays the following video using its poor media player ?? I want to play those videos using other media player (such MX Player) & there has no option to do it. Kindly take a view of those problem & consider to fix those ASAP early in the next update.

                @emranhot We've confirmed the problem and will investigate the issue. If you don't mind using non-Extreme data savings mode, it's possible to login basic authentication pages.

                  Hey listen this problem started only Opera Mini 21 for Android or Opera Mini 21 beta for Android. I love to use Extreme data savings mode. Please solve this problem as soon as possible. This is serious bug. We all want to view password protect web site in opera mini. Thanks, @miyukiwork

                    Okay, lets see here. On the download section, the icons were enlarged. On the main menu, Offine Pages and Bookmarks were included and other changes were done.

                    BUT the Find-in-Page still remains out of reach after user complaints.

                    Sincerely speaking, User Feedback on this forum seems to be as useless as it gets.

                            Yeah, that was fantastic. First moved the bookmarks bar from the main menu to start page, then had made us used to it. And now again moved the bookmarks bar to the main menu. You guys are great!

                              ...and still no permanent choice of search engine, with google as forced default with access to the search history.

                              wtf, merry christmas to everybody.

                                • An option to select all text should be added.
                                • Double tap to zoom in and out should be added to facilitate stylus users.
                                • An option to switch between mobile and desktop modes would increase flexibility and help with some website compatibility.
                                • A menu option for enabling/disabling JavaScript would be handy.
                                • Folder creation for Saved Pages would be good.

                                  @defaultuse Also it would be nice if we could export Saved pages offline so we can view them anywhere we want. There isn't even a way to back them up.

                                    ...or at least organize the saved pages into folders and subfolders within opera mini.

                                    maybe someone could write an external app to extract the offline pages and convert into html or pdf. even plain text files, so far i have failed to read them with es file manager etc from /data/data/com.opera.mini.native/files/savedpages/

                                    is there a workaround? any practical advice is highly welcomed.

                                        In high saving there are times when sites with advanced mobile view like Facebook and youtube are not rendered correctly. I hate it when it happens because it sticks for quite some time and restarting didn't help.

                                        Here's one of the occurrence, it wasn't supposed to display like that https://pictr.com/images/2016/12/28/499196e84f2d4a2d46d582d09fc89d33.png

                                        Hi. Thanks for your valuable feedback!

                                        Offline page improvement is one of the planned feature improvements in 2017. I'll share your feedback to our team.

                                        @d-wa, yes the layout issue is a known issues in the Wi-Fi Data savings mode and the compression team is looking into the problem.

                                          enhanced offline page management sounds great.

                                          i (and sure many others) would lile to see another topic on your list of new year's resolutions: unrestricted user choice of default search engine away from google.

                                          many thanks for the bestest minibrowser for the mobile net, and new year's greetings to all team and users.

                                          Some of our non-secret new year's resolutions are

                                          • Performance improvement

                                          • Better video experiences

                                          • Better onehand support

                                          I hope you enjoy using Opera Mini during the holidays and we wish all the best new year!

                                            Hello,

                                            This has been requested multiple times, but I'll do it again, please, please, please add a quick toggle on the menu (like Opera) or on the main bar (and/or main screen) between both "extreme" and "data savings" mode, as switching between the 2 modes is one of the most repeated tasks I perform in opera mini.

                                            It is very annoying to go to a completely different screen just to simply toggle the two modes, I understand wanting to show off the data savings on the complete screen, but for those who need a quicker toggle, Please at least give us that option.

                                            Thanks and have a great new year!

                                              Actually I'm waiting for Built in media player & Adblocking improvements. The inbuilt download manager is ok but still poor compared to UC Browser. After all Opera Mini is getting good. But At least let us play those downloaded videos via MX Player instead of Opera Mini's built in player.

                                                afaik opera mini does not have a media player, but uses the youtube app or other players on the device. i killed the youtube and google player app, using tubemate and newpipe with vlc instead.

                                                the adblocking thing is due to mini's intrinsic design as a web proxy client, won't be easy to fix other than switch on/off (which works good enough for me).

                                                i'd rather like to see more efforts re user privacy against google/bing/yahoo etc.

                                                fair enough, let's see what 2017 brings.

                                                  @cubot I was saying about the web video playing feature as media player. After download a video by opera mini & then open it from downloaded list then always those downloaded videos plays using Opera Mini's video playing feature. But I want to play those downloaded videos using MX Player but there has no way to do it inside from Opera Mini. Previous version of Opera Mini like Opera Mini 19 always plays those downloaded videos using devices other media player. & the video playing feature of Opera Mini is too poor to use

                                                    @jackob11: now i see what you mean about video download playback. i never used that feature before, as i usually go to play and use tubemate or newpipe to download in the resolution and format of my choice. the only way to get videos on my reduced and limited data rate.

                                                    i have a question.

                                                    why large downloads (wait for wifi) has no effect when extreme mode data savings is off?

                                                    obviously, downloads will start immediately even when wifi is not available. (mobile network is connected)

                                                      I'm lazy so i always use one hand to browse.

                                                      the top right corner is too far. open multiple pages in new tab needs two hand.

                                                      I like the pop up bar for long press on web link. How about another pop up bar for back button in favorite lists.

                                                      And now Facebook is broken! What did you do??.

                                                      Strange, on my device it did the opposite. I never set it to wait for wifi but it did anyway frequently.

                                                      I like the pop up bar for long press on web link. How about another pop up bar for back button in favorite lists.

                                                      I don't really understand what you mean, can't you just use the device's capacitive back button?

                                                      For the pop-up I wish it displayed lower than the center the screen for better reach.

                                                      Now it's back to normal.

                                                      It was broken for the past week or so. It got no JavaScript and I can't post comments.

                                                        there are workarounds for one hand use but I'm afraid that new phones with Nougat won't work since they're hard to root.

                                                        New opera mini cancelled the floating pop up bar of a long press on favorite but brings multiple selective favorites with fixed top pop up bar which is quite convenient but hard to reach.

                                                        Maybe ui can be customized so the entire tool bar is allowed to stay button for one hand or stay top as current.

                                                          The red one?

                                                          Serious, Opera logo has always been red (or red/white for beta versions), I never saw an Opera with green or black logo.

                                                                      The image with 'Mini' in a green background is the same I have here and has been around since a long time. On the other hand, the one on the left with 'Mini' in a dark background is new to me.

The one with green label is the client which we pay most attention to, so if you have both versions, stick with the green one.
