  • bpydzinski sir
    goood evening as usual I have loaded new opera fast and goood background option and sir pl update when we will get book mark sycronisation eagerly waiting sir would be thankful if u really update us on this

  • hi opera mini team, new themes, private tabs all are welcome additions.

    but this version is some wat unstable comparing with the previous version.

    browser gets crashed when using more than one tab.

    tabs opening animation is slow and not good.

    while clicking on links many times text is selected along with click... it's annoying...

    thanks for the new updates.

  • I am using Microsoft Lumia 535,updated new version opera mini 8.1.0.118,not working properly,unable to load the page,sticks,to open it needs restart,this version not available on windows store now,plz make new and improved version available on store which could function smoothly on my Lumia 535.

  • Thanks for the new update. Opera is close to be my default browser (I was wishing Opera Mobile for WP actually).

    • Opening new tab animations is very slow, very very slow and laggy.
    • Selecting text is very very annoying.
    • Sometimes Opera doesn't load pages.
    • Tapping on screen while loading page crashes Opera.
    • In my opinion UI is still ugly. It needs a fresh look.
    • Setting page should be panorama pane.
    • Live tile must be an option. And live tile needs a fresh look too.
    • Page loading speed is still slow.
  • Opera is close to be my default browser (I was wishing Opera Mobile for WP actually).

    Glad to heat that!

    Tapping on screen while loading page crashes Opera.

    Could you share your client id? After last update we noticed new type of crashes, and we already have fixes to some of them. Would be good to check if yours was already fixed.

    Live tile must be an option. And live tile needs a fresh look too.

    If you don't want a live tile, you can choose the smallest size - it doesn't flip.

    Page loading speed is still slow.

    On what type of connection? If GSM, who is your service carrier?

  • forward and back swipe is not smooth and not working properly.. so please make handy options in bottom action bar.. and give option for let action bar be visible for those who wants.

  • Could you share your client id? After last update we noticed new type of crashes, and we already have fixes to some of them. Would be good to check if yours was already fixed.

    Client id is: 56 f8 9a

    If you don't want a live tile, you can choose the smallest size - it doesn't flip.

    But I want a medium size tile. :)

    On what type of connection? If GSM, who is your service carrier?

    I sometimes use wifi, sometimes 3.5G/H+. I am comparing speed with IE by the way.

    And forgot to say that closing Opera slows down start/modern page animations. I am not sure its my phone or Opera uses too much memory/storage bandwith.

  • why opera mini isn't available in windows phone store in India? shows error "item not available in store"

  • When you add Background theme switching in opera for android and opera mini for android?

  • bpydzinski sir goood evening

    It seems some-one needs to tell Opera that it is possible to update your app without actually removing it from the store first.

    For the 3rd time now their Opera Mini browser app has disappeared from the Windows Phone Store,

    sir what is reason why opera has been removed from windows store any update sir?

  • I can't seem to find the app to download from the Windows Phone store either.

  • Well I am sorry for flooding but I just learned that Mini was pulled from store.
