Opera Mini 10 beta 1 for Android

  • Hi all,

    Today, Opera Mini for Android took a huge leap forward. We have released the first beta of Opera Mini 10 with support for Opera Turbo. Opera Turbo gives you a full web experience, while still offering great data savings. This implementation of Opera Turbo is still a little bit rough around the edges, so we need your help to test it out and find any remaining problems.

    Once you install the latest beta, you will notice that Opera Turbo has been enabled. If you prefer to use the old data-savings mode, you can easily change back. Just tap the main menu, select Savings mode and choose Opera Mini.

    As always, thank you for being a part of our beta testing. Please leave any feedback you have for us in the comments.

    Enjoy!

  • I love where opera mini is going.

    I tried this update on a few sites and it works on some but on others I get an error message

    "Web page not available

    The web page at http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-32821678 could not be loaded as:

    net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE"

    All the best, I hope you can fix this soon and blow away the competition.

  • Working very bad compared with old saving method. The browsing is slow even on WiFi and background pages reloads themselves. As it is in beta, hopefully it will only get better.

  • Nice loving this new beta... But it really needs polishing.... Some sentences are breaking

    This turbo feature is amazing.... Though web layout in some pages isn't uniform.

    The nigh mode feature now breaks during app switching going off each time

  • Text wrap doesn't work.

    Nope, for me mini8 and 9 doesn't work properly and mini7 and 10 have a better connectivity.

  • Under heavy load some Ads lack animation.

  • I have found a bug, when switching from Turbo to mini, all pages loaded after become blank(appears completely white)

    anyways due to the pages being rendered on the phone in Turbo mode, server cookies cookies used in mini are not used. this means we need to relogin to sites again when in Turbo mode. is there anyway you can make Turbo use Mimi's server cookies.

  • does opera mini beta have a rendering engine for Turbo mode.

  • does opera mini beta have a rendering engine for Turbo mode.

    Your native browser does, in my case Chrome 30. With Nexus devices you may have a cutting-edge browser.

  • swipe down to refresh doesn't work in Turbo. also fonts size increases when in Turbo.

    I was wondering, the old mini, uses already rendered pages from the server and just views them, but now with Turbo, the rendering should be done on phone, in the browser. Other browsers, including opera mobile, use a lot of ram on my device, so if Turbo on mini get improved, it will be my main browser

  • i wonder what's the difference between opera for android turbo mode and opera mini 10 beta turbo mode???

    That's the point using betas. 🐧

    Opera doesn't bloat the RAM like Firefox (at 100MB margin) and indeed Mini10 should be lighter consuming memory resources on par with default browser if image quality doesn't count.

  • Data counters show sent data (sent/received ratio) higher than usual, it's up to 700KB/s on speed meter.

  • swipe down to refresh doesn't work in Turbo. also fonts size increases when in Turbo.

    Refresh swipe works just fine.

  • The most impressive feature: night mode settings persist on native player. 🍺

    Refresh swipe works just fine.

    ... on Feeds page.

  • Reverting (click back) on Opera browser after video playback the top bar is half blocked and scrolling doesn't work until second click back is triggered. I'm guessing that's a functional bug but still is redundant.
