Opera 20 beta 1 for Android

  • Opera Mini 20, really???

    Bwahaha, nothing significantly different to Mini 19 (or even 18) and still on the 2254 codebase. A few new doodah thingeys around the Google search field are not very exciting.

    Opera seems to suffer a bad case of versionitis, like most other browsers. Plus permission abuse, news forcefeeds, permanent Google search engine, spammed speed dials and paid search suggestions.

    This does not build trust in Opera's plans for Mini's future. With more WiFi, cheaper data plans and faster smartphones Mini needs more strong points to stay ahead than just speed and data savings. More focus on user privacy and sovereignity rather than fiddling the UI maybe?

    Sorry for the rant, there's still hope for the next beta.

  • oops, forgot to mention the refurbished download area.

    Which is quite nice.

  • @xirit32 Yes it's a WebView limitation, so text wrapping is not supported unfortunately.

  •         No downloading from youtube.
      
          Does Youtube ever had a download option? I don't remember have seen a native one.
    
    Then how uc mini and other browsers offer to download a video from youtube?
    

    UC Browser and other browsers who have that feature added it themselves. Downloading YouTube videos(Music or TV Shows or Movies) is against the TOS of YouTube and can get your account banned. It would be nice if Opera had the feature, but Opera is focusing on User Experience at the moment so Opera feels smooth.

    Downloading isn't the feature I long for. I want to play videos of youtube in extreme option. Moving extreme to high mode is rough for me. I like the way opera mini works I am great fan of its smoothness that is the reason I cann't live without opera mini. I tell you how I face problem switching extreme to high mode, In one tab I am using facebook in extreme now I want to play a video from youtube I have to go in high mode . I ve also notice that high mode is not enough smooth as extreme mode.
    Opera mini is made for extreme mode not for high mode.

    Thanks miyuki for clearing that out. Although sad and somehow already expected I appreciate the response. Its good to know things from first hand 🙂

  • facebook issues still occurs. when you tap the fb logo in the start page it'll directed you to the facebook page. but error occurs. it said 'TOO MANY REDIRECTS'
    Found this bug(perhaps) since the previous version.
    Youtube playback error. sometimes it works if Video Boost turned off.
    and
    i don't know is it my connection or what, if i'm on 2G, the Extreme Mode is very slow. didn't happened before this. before this 2G and Extreme Mode is extremely helpul if i'm reached my data limit.
    that's all. thank you.

  • Built in download manager needs much more improvements.

  • It is strange that the beta exists alongside the previous non-beta.

    usually, like whatsapp, a beta installation will replace the previous non-beta installation.

    more, the opera beta will not import those saved pages and the speed dials from a previous non-beta installation.

    quite inconvenient!

    please consider any modifications, thankyou.

  • There's no option to play vidoes after download any video via Other media player. If I download a video & open it from opera mini's download manager Opera Mini plays it by its default poor video player. Where all the videos is not resize (fit to screen) as my screen. Pretty annoying.
    Also If I download multiple files at a time then its not showing (individually) how much time it need to finish the download per downloading files. All that it shows is the total time of all downloading files.
    & the built in download manager needs much improvements for speed.
    I'm waiting for the next beta release. Maybe all of those issues will fixed in the next beta.

  • it can't resume download after link fail. in uc browser, immediately u go back to the link to download, the failed download will resume

  • Can't able to login to Facebook using High Saving mode (Extreme mode off)

  • There's a new beta update on Google Play.
    & still the version as Disappointing as previous version.

  • Can't able to login to Facebook using High Saving mode (Extreme mode off)

    letme guess, "TOO MANY REDIRECTS" issue, right?

  • Yes, don't know why there are "Too many Redirects" ???

  • my gut feeling is that redirects and reloads are in fact a memory issue of the phone. available ram getting tight with many apps in the background competing, and not enough room for mini to expand websites, that are getting fatter and fatter.

    i noticed that with several tabs opened, i can see the preview, but when i open the page mini returns a blank page while reloading. less frequently so on phones w more than 1 gb ram.

    ymmv.

    i don't think so. i only have Opera Mini running, with only a single tab, which is, lead to 'Too Many Redirects'.
    unless, what you mean is background processing.

    Well, works when Chrome is default at double tap gesture (when ain't like zoom in/out).

  • Letsencrypt certificates are "invalid or non-verifiable" (for instance, when accessing https://letsencrypt.org )
    This bug is several months old and was already fixed (several times, in fact) but then a new version comes along that breaks things.

    Please fix this definitely, it's importante since this is the fastest growing certificate authority.
    Thanks!

  • I am trying load videos at Vimeo.com on extreme mode, but only runs without extreme mode.

    Cheers

  • Now videos works fine at Vimeo.com at opera mini at extreme mode, but not at opera mini beta at extreme mode.

    Cheers.
