Opera Mini 17 beta 3 for Android

  • Hi,

    Many of you are browsing web pages in the extreme data-savings mode. This data savings mode has some limitations, but we are trying to improve web user experience.

    In this release, we have added "Play" option when you click video files and you can see the video in the browser. Now you don't need to download to see videos.

    This is an early experimentation, so your feedback will help us make the feature better.

    As always, thank you for being a part of our beta testing. Let us know what you think of the new build. You can download the Opera Mini for Android beta from here: http://opr.as/e1x

  • Extreme mode is useless to me if i cant login to websites like this forum.
    In order to post this message I had to change to normal data savings.

  • Is there a reason why the cache folder can't be stored in the internal storage of the device instead of the data storage?
    On my tablet Opera Mini cache is 200megs in size. Please offer option to store it I. Internal SD storage.

  • When you tried to play videos on facebook. It will play and when you exited the player. The UI will stay on landscape even though your device is oriented to be stay on portrait.

  • Video player needs improvement,not responding in full screen mode.
    Device moto e (condor) android 6.0.1.

  • play button doesn't work, just a 3 seconds buffering and a landscape blink.

  • please add 100% black AMOLED theme so that users with AMOLED display can save battery when surfing.
    also add inverted display option, so that we can have white text on black background.
    that is important for 2 reasons: 1. to save more battery (100% black pixels on AMOLED display are turned off), 2. white text on black background is much better and easier to read when outdoors and under direct sunlight.

    thanks!

  • Thank you for play option, this is something i was request long time ago(must have). But want to ask you is possible that youtube videos be played in browser instead in youtube app?

    Also, you need improvement on scrolling trough page when you are not in extreme saving mode, if you test scrolling on sony experia e1, you will see that scrolling is not that smooth in opera mini as in opera for android..

    I dont know exactly what problem is with that browsers, probably ram.. I was try different browsers, and all have problem with scrolling(scrolling is not smooth), only opera and chrome are better, but not too much, example, if page are very large, then if you scroll down while java script loads more elements scrolling becomes choppy, and browser at the end crashes..

    I know that this can be fixed, example when java execute command for loading more elements on same page, you can do, that instead that(adding elements below), browser opens new page in same tab?

    In that way browser wont crash, and you have smooth scrolling, and you dont have ram issue..

    You can do this for users with low ram phones, question is, are you willing to do this?

  • I'm having a minor issue across my 4.x devices where the UI goes invisible.

    The buttons can be pressed and all that, but i can't see any of them.

    Also, whats up with the "default browser" query not taking a no for a no? I keeps showing up at random intervals. This level of nagging is not nice, Opera.

  • But want to ask you is possible that youtube videos be played in browser instead in youtube app?

    This is how it works here.

    Also, you need improvement on scrolling trough page when you are not in extreme saving mode, if you test scrolling on sony experia e1, you will see that scrolling is not that smooth in opera mini as in opera for android..

    I'm on a Moto X Play and Scrolling seems ok. Didn't notice any huge difference between Mini and Opera for Android.

  • Guys add web page translation.

  • Why are the speed dial icons so small now? There used to be four icons across the screen and now there are five. It is getting too small to read

    Is therw some setting to put it back to four?

  • Hey guys, is there anybody who can help me with the Feeds in Opera Mini?
    I don't know how to add new feeds to the list and although there is one feed in my list there aren't any news.

  • The Video playing feature is really nice as it was expected since opera can compress video for lower data usage...but this version goes on with some bugs-
    1.opera mini takes long time to respond at startup.. It freezes
    2.In the extreme data saving mode if my phone backlight goes off when a page is loading and turning it on after full page loads... No links work.. It's a bit weird.. None of the previous versions had this problem
    3.In case of low network coverage like 2G EDGE the video player can't load videos instantly reverting to the video web page... I wish if it could wait a bit longer
    4.After the video finishes or I just back off the loading to web page in extreme mode the page gets in landscape mode and does not go back to potrait mode as I keep the "auto rotation" off

    Thanks

  • The web video player system needs too much improvements. After press play button it takes too much time to play the following video. And why it played in landscape wise? I need it to play in Portrait. Add an option to resume the played videos.
    There has a bug. After play online video the Opera Mini Interface remains Landscape mode. but I always turn off the "Auto Rotation"

  • After press play button it takes too much time to play the following video.

    The server needs some time to process and optimise the video and send it back to you.

    And why it played in landscape wise? I need it to play in Portrait

    Here the videos play on portrait mode by default.

  • Since you are messing with colors: When will we have a colored status bar to match the app?
