Opera Mini 16 for Android

  • The Opera Mini for Android team is happy to announce the release of Opera Mini 16.

    In this version, we’ve included an option to block ads. If you want to enable the feature, you can do that in the settings under “Savings mode”. By enabling this feature, you will be saving browsing data, as well. Ads will be removed by our servers, so you will receive pages without extra advertising data.

    Another new addition is a new page-loading animations feature. As you go to a new URL, its page thumbnail or address will pulsate in the webpage area while loading the page.

    You will also notice the stop button is finally back where it wants to be. Now, it’s located where the forward button is and it allows you to better navigate with one hand.

    Changes in Opera Mini 16.

    • Ad blocker
    • New page-loading animations
    • Stop button in the bottom navigation bar
    • Feature hints
    • New news feed layout
    • Add to home screen option in the address bar “+” menu
    • Installation and startup time improvements

    Please give Opera Mini a spin and leave a comment with any feedback you may have for us.

  • All the features of Opera Mini is just more than awesome without the file downloading feature. It is the only worst part of Opera Mini. Hope that developers will work very hard to improve Opera Mini's file downloading system. Thanks for new release of Opera Mini

  • Please add Multiwindow support for Opera Mini in its next update. Please... Please... Please. Rest everything about Opera Mini is awesome.

  • Double tap doesn't wrap texts as fit to width. 17b1 does that on Nexus 7 2012 Android 4.3

    please move this to saving data tracker.

  • unable to install on smartphone Prestigio Pap 7500

  • on android 4.2.2

  • on this version, I unable to upload file, something strange happend, on old version I can uploa it, please check the whole things. also i have tried the beta 17, still no fix

  • Really love the ad blocker option, I feel it's been a long time coming. however, I would kindly ask you to update the Java version and add this ad block option as I feel that's where this feature is needed the most. ads not only are annoying but make the page load larger as a result low end phones have a hard time scrolling and more data is used as well.

  • Well, cookies don't work in this version. Site preferences reset always after a while and show that cookie dialog again (after starting opera anew or turning data connection on/off). Otherwise everything is good.

  • @draqonyx, thanks for your input. We are aware of the cookie issue and will push the fix soon.

  • I frequently saved a lot of webpages. Can opera allow pages to be saved in folders (& alphabetically) for easier retrieving later vs. chronologically now? (older pages are way down the menu...)

    Regards,

  • another thing, the font size of menu contents are fixed, regardless of phone settings (currently large for my 4" phone screen) Can opera allow font size change for all menus ...

  • another thing, the font size of menu contents are large for my 4" phone screen (even on smallest font setting of phone - bookmarks, saved pages titles cannot fully be displayed in a single line). Can opera allow smaller font size for all menus (in opera mini ver7.6, menu content titles are displayed fully in a single line because fonts are smaller) ...

    (Pls disregard above font size comments as editing period lapses...)

  • ya, really hope that pages can be saved into folders for easy referencing and retrieving.

    and is there a way to transfer present bookmarks, speed-dial to a new phone?

  • and is there a way to transfer present bookmarks, speed-dial to a new phone?

    Use Sync.

  • The problem with the download is that the progress priority only as dismissible notification, not a running process like a regular browser usually has. It's honestly the dumbest decision to put in opera mini.

    I know the development started from feature phone java environment which not having app notification, but what the heck? Why stop with just notification?

    On some many case, downloading is a one shot thing, and with this notification priority it's like leaving it to fortune call.

    Like just recently, while I was downloading a 800MB file, it unexpectedly stopped at 245MB. When I check it says 'waiting for WiFi network'. How strange! I was in my home WiFi network all the time! And it stopped while I browse the net WITHIN OPERA MINI! And did you know what I get when trying to resume it? download failed.

    In the end I gotta let go 245MB for fu*king nothing.

    Can you imagine how frustrated I am?

    So please, opera mini, please use priority for downloading like other ordinary browser.

  • pls be grateful for a free browser...if unsatisfied, there are other similar low-data browser.

  • Still Opera Mini is more than a bullshit browser when it comes with file downloading but when it comes with web browsing Opera Mini is the best of all. I continuously report to Opera team to fix all the downloading problem since Opera Mini 7.6.4 some of the bug reports are confirmed by Opera Mini QA team. But now its Opera Mini 17 beta update 4 & the developers do nothing at yet. Opera Mini is just disappointed me. I'm totally fed up only for Opera Mini's crappy poor file downloading system.

  • @lantohsay or ask to make it satisfying.

    honestly, who don't want improvements? apparently it's you.
