Opera Mini 18 beta for Android

  • Dear All,

    I'm happy to announce that we have just pushed a new beta build to Google Play Store. Here's what's new in this release:

    • new search field in omnibar
    • further enhancements to video player
    • option to sort bookmarks and saved pages
    • gaming category in news is back
    • almost 30 various stability and performance improvements

    Please try it out and, as always, let us know what you think. You can either leave your comment here or submit a bug through settings.

    Have a happy summer!

  • Installed to my de-googled phone.

    Running well, downloads ok, still no video without youtube app.

    many thanks & kudos to the dev team.

  • Mighty new search bar is really impressive but still there has no file downloading improvements. It's annoying. But after all kudos, man

  • I'm all up for stability improvements and performance but Saved pages needs serious work.

    Don't know why the proper Saved Pages feature got canned.
    The current one is a glorified Bookmark with no option to sync or to import from storage.

    My saved pages vanishes after each version update so currently don't have a single page.

  • I just wish that offline pages are saved in sdcard directory and maybe, just maybe distributable.

  • Finally it should become possible to decide where the offline pages shall be stored and thus become possible to interchange them between devices.

    It's so easy to connect two devices via WLAN. For example. It's so often that by mobile phone I gather some articles for later reading and then, when I had time for reading them, I also have the tablet available. Then I want to copy them to the tablet. Ideally it might be some 'synchronize' function, but if, than an intelligent one, which means: controlability what parts are synchronized, what differences are remaining. Probably just providing file access will be easier to implement. And no, using the internet for this copy process is no option. Anyway synchronizing devices should not be done via Internet 'clouds' - direct connections are a better idea. Cheaper, faster, more secure.

  • Hi, I'm using 18.0.2254.105561, and... for life of me, I can't find the page reload/refresh button. I could have sworn there was one??? Take a look at pic: https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10210402510605409&id=1422588450

    It should be where the search field is.

  • new search field in omnibar

    There will be an option to disable it like in desktop version?

  • @ fewtchure
    click lower left home android

    get opera search bar
    on top left
    click them three vertical blobs
    get reload option

    hey... >happy....

  • aww, feck.
    did not go as well as intended.

    ok mods, kill my postings by fire.
    thanks.
    and have a nice sunday brunch.

  • please add "remaining time" while downloading a file along with "download speed"...

  • please reduce the size of the search field especially when the tablet is in portrait mode.
    if it expands when we click on it to do a search then there's no need to have it taking so much space.
    the refresh button needs to be back in the address bar.
    that extra work if clicking the ... button and then select refresh is unnecessary.

  • I agree that the search field is oversized. Especially as we keep getting suggestions in the main bar.

    Also, after installing this beta i sometimes get a blank screen when going back to old tabs. The only way to get the page to show is to either hit the refresh from the 3 dot button, or tapping the address bar and hitting enter. Apparently either action do not trigger a full reload of the page via the server, just a refresh of the display. And no, the pull down to refresh action do not work when this bug is in effect.

  • About search field in omnibar, issues with portrait/tablet are known. We'll try to fix them during 18 beta lifecycle.

    @leocg, so far, no option to disable it, is planned.

  • I remember the Java opera mini could save the pages in "obml" extensions in sdcard... Wish the android can save pages in some extension to save it in sdcard and can be distributed later and reload the same pages in opera mini on other devices.

  • feature request- Opera should remember the data savings mode for each individual site.
    I use sites that do not work at all in extreme mode and have to switch modes Everytime.

  • Dear All,

    we've pushed next beta build onto Google Play store. What's new in this one:

    • more local content on start page in India
    • new search suggestion mechanism
    • various issues regarding new search box were fixed

    As always, please download, try it out and give us your feedback. Either by posting a comment here or via bug reporting tool in settings.

  • Where is the Rewind button in video playing feature?? It's very necessary for us. Moreover the video player can't able to rewind forward or backward by swiping. And we need Video Resume feature. Please take a view at this problem.

  • the refresh button needs to be visible at all times. it's the most users button by me.
