Question about savings modes

  • In recent versions of mini, there are two modes High and Extreme, the extreme mode is what I assume how previous versions of mini worked with the pages being processed on Opera's servers. In High mode however the pages are processed on the phone (with resources compressed), this is like Opera for Android in Turbo mode, but the latter has a much larger size than mini, so I'm curious how does this work ? (My guess is that Mini uses the 'engine/browser' in the Android API, is this right ?)

    P.S. Thanks to the amazing Opera Mini team, the new mini is mostly bug-free and you even solved some site specific issues I was having. You guys are amazing.

    P.P.S Using the "preview" option while making a post with mini on this forum is pretty awkward and it discards the text (thankfully I copied it) and I don't feel like making a new topic for this issue.

  • You're right, Extreme mode is the same what you can find in other Opera Mini versions. High mode is similar to Opera for Android, but Opera Mini uses internal Android web engine, while Opera for Android runs it's own engine (thus making it much bigger).
