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

      Still using version 18. I think It's the most stable, fast and does not unnecessarily refresh my open pages

        the address bar should be at the bottom or middle of the homescreen. or else it becomes difficult to reach with one hand on large screen phones.

          Opera Mini needs better keyboard managing when it comes to sign in forms. Most of the time keyboard covers sing in form and you don't see what you are writing.

          Lightning browser has this sorted very good.

          You can see comparison between latest Opera Mini and Lightning browser here: http://imgur.com/a/hunDy

          You'll get the idea.

            Just to be clear, in both cases password form is selected and keyboard appeared. Only in Opera Mini you can't see it, because it didn't move above keyboard, as with Lightning browser.

              I don't want a automatic refresh of my open pages! I don't want a automatic opening of a new tab, that I have to close each time! Please make it possible to disable these functions. And please insert a switcher to turn on/off images like in Mini 7 but also in "high mode".

                Facebook issue

                In previous versions of Opera mini or opera mini beta there was no such problems but after every updates I am not liking it.

                When I like any comments or pic or status updates in Facebook, it refreshes the whole fb page and starts from top of the fb page after page refreshed and I have to scroll down and have to find that content which was like by me. Please check and make fix this issue in new update as soon as possible..!

                        Opera Mini doesn't support Google Re-Captcha v2 & Re-Captcha v1 as well. I just can't able login to many website due to re captcha issue. So, I hope the developers will take a view about this problem.

                            If you open http://video.online-convert.com/convert-to-mp4 using opera mini (any version, the problem seems to be present on all opera mini versions) and try to convert a video, when the conversion is completed and download begins opera mini only downloads 14kb and then displays download complete despite the files being much larger. I've tried the same website with other browsers and they're able to download from that site just fine. please fix this, I really rely on opera mini, other downloads from other websites work just fine with opera mini only that one website is giving error.

                              @miyukiwork Hi! Can you forward a request to the dev team. The opera mini it's perfect in every aspect just a suggestion on improvement that please implement better font size customization for webpages in the app. For eg, currently you can only choose between small, medium and large sizes, now sometimes user want a size in between medium and large and sometimes sizes greater than large (extra large are preferable), so in this regard a slider (you can slide the slider to the size of your liking) for font size will help resolve this. What do you think?

                              What's between medium and large?

                                What's between medium and large?

                                for example, if small font size is 10pt, medium is 14pt, large is 20pt then in between 14 and 20 there is 15,16,17,18,19 you getting my point?

                                Also, if a slider is not feasible then please implement xlarge (>large) option for font size. Actually why anyone would need xlarge is when he/she uses a low dpi like 360, 300, etc.

                                Ah, so you want Opera Mini to stop using small, medium and large to start using a 'numbered'system?

                                  not exactly a number system but more like a "text scaling" similar to chrome browser. Apologies if that is too much to ask for, you are a senior developer, it' s just a matter of a line or two of code that needs to be added.

                                  And Sir, if you think that is not possible to do and it made you felt rude or anything then skip that and atleast implement one more size i.e. xlarge. Means we will have small, medium, large, xlarge sizes. It's a humble request to you Sir.

                                  Mini uses Android's Webview, so I don't know if they can add such feature. Currently only in extreme mode you can set the font size, probably because it is rendered on the server.

                                        On some sites I get a popup message. UNKNOWN PROTOCOL. The protocol nielsenwebid is not supported by any app on this device. All these sites that won't open in Opera Mini will open in chrome and the internet browser installed on my tab S2 tablet. So this message that pops up saying this website is not supported by any app on the device is incorrect and looks like it is only relevant to opera mini. Is there an instruction anywhere in opera mini whereby I can fix this problem as it is a good browser but not quite up there withe best yet.

                                            @deathbearry, that actually tells something. How do you connect to the internet? If Google works slow, then it means you likely have poor connection to our servers. Which country are you from and what is your mobile operator? Does it work slowly always or only during specific hours?

                                            @ilovelilly, what is the site that you get this message on? It looks like the website sends incorrect links for Opera Mini users and you should contact with website owner. But please post an URL, so I will double check.

                                              -lives in Malaysia. -connect via my Lenovo a2010 phone. using 4G network. -my telco/mobile operator is Celcom Malaysia. -it always works slowly.

                                              at first, i was thinking because my telco, because our telcos provide not so fast connection for prepaid user. but Puffin works differently and 2x faster than Opera Mini. this bothers me. because Opera Mini used to be fast. make Opera Mini great again, please!

                                                Annoying bug in the latest Opera Mini : The address bar is blocked from view by the "Copy link"/Site suggestion bar. Same bug as in beta that had already been reported before on here. Strangely not everyone is affected. Sometimes if the keyboard is currently open and you click the address bar, this bug doesn't happen and it works as it should.
