Opera Mini 8 beta for Android

  • Fonts have another representation after a while, a fresh install fix that. See http://s24.postimg.org/u7xrg8sid/308.png with small fonts. Fonts are lighter and scale two sizes (Chrome alike), page loading feels material.

  • I think this version eats up a lot more mobile data then the 7.x version. and that annoying starting page... i'd shot the one who had this stupid idea. speed dial is enough, i do not need a start page full with irrelevant data, and it is not editable and i cant disable it.....
    i dont really understand u opera developers, really......
    i used opera beta sync , after i loged in to my sync account with opera mini beta, nothing happened....

  • yes, data consumption is a disaster compared to the v7 opera mini. i hope this bullsh.t vill never released as a stable update for opera mini. higher version number but eating a lot more mobile data ...is this innovation or evolution?
    if this will be a permanent change, you shold give a final version of v7.x that google play would mot want to upgrade to v8
    ahh and also fix the v 7.6.3 that ruined the view of all webpage, and the broken opera link need some fixing too

  • BookmarkSync Opera Mini -> Opera Mini Beta is needed!! Also Nightmode would be very nice!!

    Do you have any proof to back up your theory? Cause from my view both use the same protocol to send data and they both do it in similar manner. I might be able to belive that it needs a couple of kB more on start but afterwards... hmm... If you find this 'a lot' that you describe, please report a bug through our bug tracking system. It may be that you have some unique use case.

    Done!

    Maybe the extra kB goes to 'home' which updates it's content everytime we're at it like right after opening Opera Mini or right after opening a new tab.
    It's the first thing there, y'know..
    How much data does 'home' consume in a session? I wonder..
    Or maybe it just because the new data usage counter not divided for current session and total like the old Opera Mini?

    To be honest I'm not enjoying 'home' at all, I disabled it a day after it got on opera mini and never look back.
    Now you shove it in our faces and thought we all should be happy with it, well, I'm not.

    there's so many sophisticated features in Opera Mini which we love and enjoy all this time that not made it in this new Mini Beta, and I think it called downgrading.
    In that case, the next OM won't be my favorite.

    I hope my 2 cents worth something for the development.

    1. The reload button should be placed on the navigation bar instead of the homepage button. (pretty annoying on the big version too)
    2. A smaller font option since the fonts are still to big on smaller screens with the current "small font size"
    3. Option to turn off the homescreen
    4. Full screen option like the one on the old mini
    5. Auto complete on the address bar needs to come back.

    that's it for now. For the most part, I like the new look. Some sites are displayed much better and the "constant reloading on clicking a link" bug seems to be gone so this is a much better mini. I just want the few features I listed to be implemented.
    OT: why the hell is it so difficult editing a post on here? It's impossible placing a cursor in between letters..

  • The image quality setting shoulb be in the settings menu, not hidden under the data usage display.

  • Many people use opera mini to cope with slow (64 kilo bit per second) gsm data lines. Opera mini is the only usable browser in this situation. You must let users disable the "Discover" or they will be forced to use old versions.

  • While browsing the forum "android-hilfe.de", sometimes after changing the subforum, opera asks me if I want to save login/password.I did not enter anything.
