Opera Mini 8 beta 4 for Android

  • Hi all,

    We are proud to update Opera Mini for Android beta today. We’ve been busy adding some nice, new features, such as:

    • An easy way to reload by swiping down from the top of page.
    • The option to postpone big downloads until you are on a Wi-Fi.
    • A nice loading bar showing the progress of receiving a page.
    • The good old feeds feature, which can be enabled in the settings menu.

    If you’re running the most recent version of the Opera Mini for Android alongside this beta, you will be asked if you want to import some data on startup.

    We also translated Opera Mini beta into twice as many languages. That said, please bear with us as we haven’t been able to translate the newly added features, yet.

    Again, thank you for being a part of our beta testing. Please leave your feedback in the comments.

    Enjoy!

  • This update is surely beautiful.... the migration feature is splendid.. but my bookmarks are nowhere to be seen... only the speedial are visible plus saved pages.... still playing with it... will give the feedback.

  • Opera does not load any website. Even the saved pages imported from Opera Mini Stable.

    Sorry for my english

  • I have 2 suggestions:

    1. Night Mode: Because many people often use Opera Mini when they are in dark (bedtime, lights out....). So it help us to protect our eyes.
    2. Auto image quality changing: If enabled, Image Quality auto changes when we use data (off) or wifi (high or low or whatever users choose).
      I don't remember how many times and how long i wrote this suggestions and email for opera But nothing changes. I hope you won't let me down again.
  • "Auto image quality changing" How does Opera know our pipe? Are they going to keep track of every possible internet connection? It seems a great idea, but also non-trivial...

  • I don't know how. I usually turn off "image display" when in 3g. If i change from 3g to wifi, "image display" automatic turn on. So i hope opera mini can do it too.

  • mini 8 android wants email for bookmark sync. but i have mini 7 and i can login and sync via my opera forum username. how to sync mini 8 with opera forum user name so we can get opera mini 7 online saved bookmarks??? can anyone help?
    mods seems too busy and they dont reply to their users

  • Wonderful browser. Could you move the bookmark button to the right, upper left corner is impossible for my tiny thumb. I really hope you add a night mode too!

  • Make the postpone method for wifi as a optionable function , Bcoz i'm not using wifi so everytime i download a file i need to do one more step to download my pictures or media ...

    sorry for my bad english

    I hope you understand , what iam trying to say

    Thankyou in advance..

  • "preinstalled" speed dial icons are coming back, no matter how many times i delete them (like google+, main site of telenor...)

  • Thanx for bringing back feeds I don't think I will be going back to classic mini now. I hope next update fixes the fonts, they still look big even when I change to small in settings. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Pocket Neo.

  • Before beta 4 I able to use opera mini8 now after update 4 install properly but not open fores close....samsung galaxy y I509

  • It doesn't show the icons of bookmarks and history sites as in Opera Mini 7.6.4. Fix it. Also, the font size is slightly larger even when it's set to small.

  • Hi,

    We have some known issues with the Speed Dial right now. One thing is that you can get back Speed Dial entries that you've already deleted. Another thing is that the special items (Bookmarks, Saved Pages, Feeds) can move around and behave unpredictable.

    This was because of a major change that landed right before the last beta, but we're working on fixing them. Thank you for your patience. 🙂

    Opera does not load any website. Even the saved pages imported from Opera Mini Stable.
    Sorry for my english

    Could you add some information about your device? We haven't been able to reproduce this issue here.

    The old system called "Opera Link" is not compatible with the new syncing feature, but you can use the same login credentials if you like. You can access your old data on link.opera.com

  • I cant even download a single pic when I update this latest update.. How?

  • wow, this update sure is sweet!
    feeds is back baby!

    but one question: how could I disable the "swipe down to reload"?
    because I think it useless considering when we scroll up the adress bar show up along with the reload button.
    we even don't have to reach the top of the page.

    as far as I can tell this function brought by android lollipop is pretty much garbage on every application that isn't a social media, so implement it in opera mini only equal annoyance.

    and please give option to disable the autohide on address/tabs bar. that's the thing I really want you to do all this time guys.

    You can't disable it, but we will tweak it in an upcoming update. However, you should only get it when you reach the top of the page. Please file a bug through Settings - "Report a problem" if that's not the case.

  • It will be interesting to find out why Opera Mini proxy doesn't forward OS TCP/IP info beside UA and 'Pike v7.8 release 517' via javascript, in fact that field is blank from some time. Besides, TCP SYN packet signature has syn/max_segment as 10/1 ratio with 0 scale via socket and that feels stupid. Checking whoer.net and noc.to.

  • Is there any way of turning off off-road mode?

  • opera mini beta am sure doesn't have off-road mode... it's already a mini...
    this beta has become my browser of choice.... in a few updates it will totally replace the classic mini
