Very questionable new ads
Annoying as the full screen ads are, so far I am sort of tolerating them since they are not trying to be anything else than (annoying) ads shown at my face.
But today they went to the next level so to speak, and I got the ad shown below.
I think these "your computer/phone/etc is infected, click HERE to fix it asap" type ads are one of the lowest ones, trying to scare people installing/downloading something they otherwise wouldn't do.
If Opera must shows ads to users, ignoring the built-in ads block settings, I hope they at least filter out the sleaziest ones.
I'm very dissapointed with this ads
Opera is nothing else but loses their market share. Just because users get annoyed with Opera & behind the annoyance Opera developers disappoints users by creating more & more problems rather than they fix problems and any improvements.
I also get annoyed & try to find alternative to abandon poor Opera.
Alas!!! One of the greatest company now becomes bullshit.
Market share reference (from StatCounter):-
I wanted to use Opera Mini. But the new full screen ads when we open the app are unbearable.
I'm running v29 of Opera Mini downloaded from APKmirror. No more fullscreen ads.
Day by day, Opera Mini becomes a true piece of shit. That's why I decide myself to abandon Opera Mini & using both Google Chrome & UC Browser.
Day by day, Opera Mini becomes more & more problematic
If you think that Mini has gone so bad you should see Opera for Android (6 months release cycle for updating Chromium to 2 versions behind the actual, AND broken) They 're slowly pulling the plug, just how they did with Coast, Max and Opera Turbo.
Full screen ads are against Google Play rules.
I've used the link below to denounce it to Google:
I hope they will force Opera to do the right thing.
