Opera for Android 43

  • @evildog1 Confirmed the problem in the public build. However, our internal builds are working fine, so it's fixed in the next version.

  • @miyukiwork Thank you. Hope it will get solved soon and i don't want to see other issues with video player again in the future. And thanks for solving black gif issue on reddit 🙂

  • Nothing breakthrough... Still same - weak. I'm glad I use Firefox.

  • @xirit32 In this version, we've mostly removed the experimental UI elements we included in the previous versions.
    Significant improvements will come in next versions. (No, 6 months is not the new release cycle, so we'll release faster than that )

    At this time only Samsung Browser Beta is faster by using a trick.

    When scrolling down or up in Samsung Browser Beta, JavaScript gets a low priority. Which makes scrolling the highest priority task. Many websites for example use JavaScript or rather abuse JavaScript for demanding code that executes simultaneously while scrolling.

    Currently Opera Mobile Beta does not have this 'give JavaScript a lower priority for fancy effects' multithreading idea implemented.

    I tested many websites and scrolling is always the most important task for a fluent experience. Since those fancy effects while scrolling with JavaScript or whatever are far less important.

    Then Opera at Android takes the lead in effectiveness and smoothness over Chrome, Samsung again.

    And for all browsers I can say, some websites expect you have the latest very expensive phones, probably since websites developers test mostly on flagships forgetting to optimize their inefficient website design. Since it's cheaper to develop slow fancy website compensates with very expensive phones by the enduser.

    I always use tablet mode on mobile and tablet and I am telling you, Ooera is now 2nd. And a very simple thing like Sleep(10); in Opera it's JavaScript code when a user scrolling the website in a loop only in effect while scrolling would make Opera at least equally fast.

    Just simple tricks. Once for example the iPhone stopped doing everything except scrolling the website and stopping all other tasks in a webbrowser but their entire OS too. It's called Snappyness.

  • Since the version 43 (I also get this on beta version 44) I get a problem for some youtube videos(not all) but only when I go to full screen, the video shows black and stop then opera crash.
    This problem doesnt happen if I play the same videos on Google Chrome.

    Here is one of the videos that this problem happens:

  • Hi

    I like new Opera(44) Beta skin back to Opera Beta 42.7.2246.114995, but is some bug.
    The mini-link icons can not be used with a 5-inch display. Show slow websites.
    When wrong show website backwards.
    Scroll and zoom in checkout.
    The input tray remains in the input tray.

  • @personal1985 It's a known issue, we'll prioritize to solve the issue

    @razorfancy Not reproducible for us. If you could share additional info, that'll help (e.g. Android version, phone model)

    @darvinya "mini-link icons" is it about Speed Dial? If so, in what way it's not usable?

  • @miyukiwork:
    The best available Opera Beta 42.7.2246.114995. This version was easily accessible with one-hand web page speed-dial buttons. Opera Beta 44 is no longer because they are very small. In addition, it is much slower in operation than 44, and many pages are flawed. The app button's graphics are also confused because of where it is old (web page menu) and where it is new (settings).

  • When is Opera 44 update fix it bugs?

    When it's ready.

  • Opera v43 stable and Opera 44 beta crashes when i login with my Facebook at https://imageshack.us/login
    Chrome works perfectly

  • @leocg :
    Thanx
    Then I downgrade Opera Beta 42.7.2246.114995, because the best.

  • Opera Beta version 44.0.2246.121597 has been pulled off from Play store... This is happening for the second consecutive time I think.
    Come on Opera do some quality checks before publishing a version.

  • Opera Beta version 44.0.2246.121597

    This topic is about Opera for Android Stable 43.

  • Are You going to launch a new and improved version???

  • Are You going to launch a new and improved version???

    When it's ready, they probably will.

  • It would be a good idea to have a beta version forum where there are talkable bugs and improved suggestions.

    Just open a topic to discuss the current beta version if you want. You could name it 'Opera 44 Beta for Android'.

  • Would not it be better only for the Opera Beta forum, where time bugs and development are in the order of time?
    Forum name: Opera Beta for bugs & ideas

    I don't think so. There aren't that many discussions to justify opening a forum just for the beta versions.
