Opera 20 beta 1 for Android

  • @Cubot

    my Android Version Is 2.3.5

    Are Not Install New Opera Mini In 2.3.5 Android ??????

    Helpppppp

  • LMAO!!.
    Sorry to burst your hopes, Sir William, but there is a higher chance of Google selling off its Search Engine than Opera incorporating a proper Saved pages feature in future versions.

  • Opera Mini has been my favorite for quite some time. I think download manager need some improvements. Hope v20 brings it.

  • @gyann22:

    No, it won't.

    For downloading you better use UC Mini.

  • In Opera Mini file downloading wasn't a great experience. Failed and interrupted downloads happen a bit too often and when they do, most of the time resuming the download doesn’t work. And obviously it has unstable & slow speed downloading problem.

    On the other hand, both UC Browser & UC Mini has built in powerful robust download manager. Which handles better file downloading. With better speed & better file management & obviously with download acceleration.

    If opera mini developers will improve the opera mini's built in download manager then without any doubt, Opera Mini will be the best of all.

    Let's not forget that file downloads put a lot of stress on Opera's servers and connections compared to just compressing websites, considerably raising the costs to run a free service to hundreds of millions users.

    While I would appreciate an improved download performance in Opera Mini, I don't mind using UC Mini for download purposes rather than forcing Opera to earn more revenue to cover their bills.

  • @jackob1

    Add also the fact that Opera mini downloads past the actual file size.

    I left Opera mini to download iTunes 12.5.2, a file not more than 170MB.

    Some 40mins later, Opera mini was STILL downloading the file and the size was past the actual download size and creeping towards the 400MB mark. Doesn't take much to know that the file is already corrupted.
    Repeated tries and it's the same issue.

    Copied the link and pasted into UCMini and it downloaded and the installer opened successfully.

    Repasted the same link in Chrome and it also downloaded and opened well.

    Repasted in OperaMini and tried again. Downloaded past the size. Decided to leave it, probably it was having connection issues, but hours later the completed download couldn't launch. File corrupted.

    Used OperaMini V20 beta from PlayStore

  • I don't know if this a problem with the latest beta but I'm getting randomly the error "Error 300 - invalid certificate" in Let's Encrypt sites. A refresh or two makes the problem disappear.

  • @lyecan: Thanks for reporting this issue. Can you share an URL of the iTunes file you tried to download using Mini?

  • @mvtreo: are you seeing this problem when using Extreme mode? Can you also post an example URL?

  • what is the build number please?

    What for the downloads must go via Opera's proxy?!! It can't any way boost downloading (bottle-neck is last-mile of client, and any video/audio/installer is ultimately compressed unlike pages).
    Downloader functionality is just using features of TCP in the client, here in Opera-Mini.

  • 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.

    Yes, that's memory management of Android. But UC-Browser takes 100M vs 70M of Opera-Mini, still working nice at 460M device (Android 4.4)!
    It uses persistent service-threads, what could use Opera's developers, if they really care of real users.

  • What for the downloads must go via Opera's proxy?!! It can't any way boost downloading (bottle-neck is last-mile of client, and any video/audio/installer is ultimately compressed unlike pages).

    There are number of reasons for that. The basic one is that many downloads are cookie and IP protected. If you try to access the same URL from your IP without a cookie, on many sites you will simply get "Access forbidden" error.

  • Opera Mini can't able to go to this page in extreme saving mode. But it can access by High saving mode. Why is this problem?
    https://uploads.to/n20mv2pngfs2
    showing " Forbidden
    You don't have permission to access /n20mv2pngfs2 on this server.
    Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request"
    But while I've high mode I can able to go this page successfully.
