Opera 41.2 - Easy access to data saving?

  • Reading the changelog for Opera's new UI it stated that the data saving toggle was moved to the overflow menu (three dots) but it's not present. Whilst I've never really been bothered about the data saving aspect I use it as it's the only way to use the ad blocker and some sites don't work when it is enabled e.g. (these work on Firefox for Android with uBlock Origin enabled).

    A nice feature improvement for the ad blocker would be the ability to exclude certain sites permanently or temporarily to solve this issue.

  • Agree. What has happened to the data savings display that used to be shown when tapping on the "O" symbol?? Now the settings shows it is activated but no actual info??
    Come on Opera, please fix.

  • I agree it was so much easier to use this feature when all the functions for settings was located under one menu not split up into two places. For me everything was much more convenient when everything was located in the top right-hand corner so that when you tapped you could instantly turn the data savings on or off with a simple tap. Now that function is located in the bottom menu bar under the settings menu buried quite deep. For me simpler is always better and instead of having the menu split up into two sections it was much better for me when it was located all in one place just my 2 cents I think probably a number of people feel this way just something for you guys to consider. I think the user interface for me was much more functional 2 incarnations back before you changed the way the menu was done thanks a lot

  • With tablet ui there is 3 over flow buttons, the data saving is in settings.requires 3 taps to that option.

  • Seems like another case of change for the sake of change.
