    We are glad to announce that we have released Opera 20 for Android. We welcome you to give it a try and let us know what you think of it. Please do not hesitate and report issues via "Report a problem" tool in Settings.

    Changelog for this update:

    • Updated Chromium to version 33
    • Various improvements to search feature
    • Added WebRTC support (requires new permissions)
    • Added support for HTML5 Vibration API (requires new permissions)
    • Ability to configure UI layout
    • Improved download manager
    • Various stability improvements

    The discover ticker feature that was presented in Opera 20 Beta was removed from final, we need to spend more time polishing it.

    The update is available now in Google Play. All users are recommended to update.We are looking forward to your feedback!

  • When and why did you start publishing the same post to News-blog and Desktop-Team/Mobile-Blog?
    I always preferred the latter ones since they used to contain a more dev-oriented/inside view... :/

  • Since when they started tagging posts as "news". ;)

  • So far so good.

  • I'm loving it

  • "Various improvements to search feature", such as?

    Are all of the previous bugs present?
    Such as, the page changing position numerous times during loading so that I can't zoom and read before it's completely loaded? (Which was not an issue on Opera Mobile Classic).

    How about double tap to zoom and wrap text?
    Is that still broken too, or does it now wrap text correctly as it did in Opera Mobile Classic?

    How about when you try to pan or zoom certain popup windows, and Opera keeps resetting the position of the window so that you can't actually access it? Is that problem still present?

    I could go on and on.
    It is very disappointing to see release after release with the same usability bugs present and never getting fixed, even though I know for a fact they have been reported.

    I will say that I am very happy to be able to choose the UI layout in the most recent version.
    That is one positive change that was extremely welcome!

  • In the last session Opera freezed TWICE
    in 10 minutes.

    Seriously, as I like this software and the ideas,
    I start to understand why it never made it to be a real mainstream browser.

    Opera products are buggy and unstable for years and nothing changes in this regard.

    It's just a shame. Guys without a quality check you'll just disappear soon.

    Wow, very nice report. Listing the pages where that happened and what things you were doing (steps).
    I'm amazed, Opera will be much better now thanks to you.

  • After update I have issues with double tap. It seems you have to wait a full 5 sec before trying to navigate on the page to allow to zoom level to lock. If you don't wait it continues to enlarge the text even more. Didn't have this problem with previous version.

    I can't reproduce this.

    Please note double tap + drag up/down to zoom is by design.
    Double tap, release then drag up/down to zoom (which I'm not able to reproduce) is not.

    Standard browsing, navigating etc.
    I would stop beeing cynical and maybe look critically into things instead of attacking people.

  • When I try to log in through Opera Classic Android App it seems it don't get access toserver, because it just show "loging.." but don't log in, so I amunable to sync my bookmarks.

  • Standard browsing, navigating etc.

    Now it's so much better specified! :)

  • I am not using beta and I am not beta tester.
    I don't remember beacause I did many operations in the browser. Nothing special.

    BTW where is password memory support?

    Detailed changelog tells me that between Opera 19 and Opera 20 final we have fixed/done 234 issues/tasks. So it's not like we're sitting here and doing nothing.

    Please be patient, every rant on forums or in reports bumps priority on different stuff ;) , so please keep using it and comment here or file a bug report.

  • You should have said "every bit of constructive criticism"... ^^
    "every rant" just drives everybody else crazy ^^

  • Right..! Would someone notice if I will just use edit option and rephrase it? :)

  • This website

    www.tvn24.pl/putinie-jestesmy-z-toba-krym-to-rosyjska-ziemia-manifestacja-poparcia-w-moskwie,405260,s.html

    Is constantly showing microreloading.
    I mean it's address bar shows it starts to reload and stops. The site is fully visible and usable but this is annoying.

    Why there is no standard Android txt functionality in forums/txt entry?
    The current one is bad because the paste function for instance is terrible.

  • Why there is no standard Android txt functionality in forums/txt entry?
    The current one is bad because the paste function for instance is terrible.
    I suspect it's because regular text fields would be incompatible with some features (JavaScript set to run when you tap the field, set focus, etc).

    I also think pasting is terrible, when you long-press it always selects a character before or after prior to pasting, is that what you're referring to?

    I found a workaround when I learned something about Android paste feature. When editing a text field instead of long pressing where you want to paste try this: grab the cursor handler that appears below where you put the cursor (the blue one) and move it to where you want to paste, now touch the handler softly. A special paste button will appear that works better.

  • yes I was exactly referring to pasting
    And lack of "select all"
