Opera Mini for PC

  • When?

    This is something I'm always dreaming... Native Opera Mini for PC.

    So, will this ever happen?

  • I don't think so.

  • Sad... :(

    I thought Opera was a visionary company, but it seems like it is not..
    Opera don't have idea how many people uses Opera mini on emulators..

    :(

  • I really can't see the advantages for the users.

  • The advantages are the same that you see in mobile devices...

    At least Opera could create an official extension for use with the desktop browser.

  • I really can't see the advantages for the users.

    Can't you see Leo? They'd be able to break every website in their desktop too. :jester:

  • The advantages are the same that you see in mobile devices...

    The main advantage of Mini, at the cost of breaking lots of sites, is the data saving and it can be achieved in desktop Opera by using Turbo. And you don't have to pay the cost.

  • Main advantage is data saving, yes.
    But achieve the same using turbo? Is this a joke?
    Turbo don't save as much data as mini.
    Have you ever did a comparison?
    Mini for PC would be a plus for everyone...
    I use micro emulator and bluestacks for this kind of things, but the experience is not smooth as it should be.
    UC browser made a PC version of his browser (nice try by the way), but the data saving is not that great.
    So, mini for PC FTW... :)

  • Opera Mini could be added as alternative for Turbo, in he same way as Opera Mini for iOS.

  • @sydneyne: Good idea.
    And I think it wouldn't be too hard to implement, since it already exist for iOS....

    Um... iOS and Windows (or Mac) aren't quite the same...

    :lol:

    I agree with leocg and rafaelluik. The thing is that when you use your mobile phone, you're often on a slow and expensive network where you have to pay more, the more you browse. But when you use your PC, you're instead often on a network with unlimited internet at a higher speed. The need for Opera Mini on PC´s is much smaller than on phones.

    And btw, actually you can use Opera Mini on your PC: https://dev.opera.com/articles/installing-opera-mini-on-your-computer/ :)

    That's not always the case.
    For instance, I often use the WiFi hotspot feature of my phone to navigate in my computer, because in my country there's no such thing as unlimited internet at a low price. The cheaper unlimited internet the you can get here is around 400$ for month, and as you can see it's expensive as hell.. So you get the picture...

    And yes, I know about emulators and stuff (I use them), but like I said in post #8, it's not smooth as it should be.

    OM for PC ftw.... :)

    I know.
    But they can do it with little effort I think.

    Okay, then I understand you.
