Feedback Opera Beta Android

    • Add change default search engine option (Keeps reverting to google)

    • Add disable location toggle to prevent constant location popups

    • Add night mode ability for better text reading in dark environments

    • Enable tap to run flash player like firefox

    • Change playstore contact email:
      "We're writing to let you know that the group you tried to contact (support-opera-android) may not exist"

  • Add Background theme switching like in opera mini 8.1 for windows phone

  • About "Enable tap to run Flash Player...", I have to say that there is no Flash player for Android, how Opera will support it? Also I already tested Firefox for Android and it does not have flash player.

  • Add Desktop mode in menu instead of in-settings only

    Puffin browser have full flash support since it cameout in 2009. Firefox tap to play is compatible with some flash sites.

    What is the use of Flash Player in mobiles?

  • Mostly for university online courses with embedded flash but it has many other useful functions such as flash based video websites e.g. sports etc Some pc websites use flash to display contents such as benchmarks etc Some videos on YouTube are only flash based and cannot be detected with youtube app when searching. I am sure there are more than this too.

  • Flash is not available (at all) in Lollipop (Android 5 or later), for most people it doesn't matter if the browser did support it.

  • I guess then that what Puffin does is precode flash webpages on their servers, compresses them before broadcasting it to our phones. Try it, its really working with the latest flash player on all websites. I like Opera's smoothness and interface though, that's why I use both, Puffin for flash and Opera for non-flash.

    Oh well, for Android, I guess we will never have a single perfect all-in-one browser.

    Focusing on main issues in OP other than flash is the 1st step if possible.

    Thanks

  • Hi @eliasg3000,

    Thanks for the feedback,

    Add change default search engine option (Keeps reverting to google)

    Add disable location toggle to prevent constant location popups

    Add night mode ability for better text reading in dark environments

    These are all things we are considering internally.

    Change playstore contact email:
    "We're writing to let you know that the group you tried to contact (support-opera-android) may not exist"

    I'll try talking to the people responsible of handling the support mail to see if we can fix this.

  • Also, manage the downloads in a better way, downloads gets stuck in beta and stable. Would be better if you add a download manager able to download parts.

  • Perfect,thanks all! I only used and still use Opera on Linux for years. Its the best browser all around from plug-ins, RAM management, compatibility, customizations to performance and smoothness. Can't wait for it to improve and grow on Android (Linux based afterall).
