Opera Mini 8: A mistake that cost you a long-time user

  • When I first started using Opera Mini, there were several features, that were removed from this BAD version that were of great appreciation:

    1-Resuming where I left off. I read alot of FanFiction, and on occasion I have to put my phone down, or do something else. In the old version, Opera Mini would reload right where I left off. In the BAD update, it refreshes every page, just like Safari. I HATE Safari because of that feature. Some chapters in fanfiction can be around 20,000 words, and having to find where I left off in the refreshed page is a joke.

    2-Opera Link. I am not stupid. You deliberately disabled link in Mini 8 to keep us from changing browsers. I want it restored, as I have over 100 bookmarks on Mini 8 that I want to transfer to another browser.

    3-The look. This was another bad call. The old look was fine. It had everything in a neat arrangement, and then you go and change it into "Safari lookalike #124814". Change it back, and maybe I'll still use it.

  • I don't understand how just putting your phone down could cause Opera Mini to reload the page. It doesn't happen to me. I could see where switching to a different app and switching back might if your phone Java heap is too small to hold both apps but setting the down isn't going to do anything.

    Opera Link is still available. It got moved to Settings > General but it still works the same as always.

  • Link has not worked for me in months. It's always empty, and there is no option to sync my bookmarks on mini 8.

    By setting down, I mean if I had to change apps for another reason, such as doing some research on something in Safari, calling someone, etc.
