Opera Mini 8 beta for Windows Phone

  • Hi All!

    There are some good news for all Windows Phone lovers around here, a brand new version was just uploaded to the store and depending on your location, will be distributed to your devices shortly.

    You may have seen our MWC preview, but for those who missed it, we do have a new UI, completely redesigned, new views for history, bookmarks, downloads, setting and data saving pages. We also have a download manager rewritten from scratch, with options to move items to libraries (either on phone or on SD card). We also have many small tweaks here and there to make your browsing more easy.

    Sadly, this product is still a beta and we miss some of the functionalities that the previous beta had (like smartpage, saved pages or session restore). But fear not! Those will be added in future. Also, when we speak about beta: yes, we know it still has bugs and we’re working on them. We might not be aware of all of them, so please report to us via forums, WP store reviews or our bug tracker, that can be found in settings.

    With this upgrade we will migrate your speed dials, bookmarks and downloads. It may happen that not all of your speed dials will have thumbnails right away, but please give it some time to fetch new ones. Depending on how much speed dials you have they might appear instantly or after next start.

    We also blocked the possibility to install Opera mini on SD card, so it may happen that your store application will ask you to move your Opera Mini to phone storage while updating.

    Another catch with this beta, is that we only support Windows Phone 8.1 devices. Windows Phone 8 and Windows 10 are not supported yet.

    So… after this lengthy prologue… I invite you to update and gives us your feedback!

  • Hello, I miss sime features, especially opera link and that you can use other searchproviders as Google. Why not make all available? And I don't like the new tab view as the old one was one of the best features of Opera as it was much faster than all the other browsers. But great, that you keep updating the app. I like it quite much.

  • Please don't remove save page. It's very useful feature

    As I wrote in the first post, it will come back. Please be patient.

  • Bugs found so far are

    Browser is a bit more buggy than previous one
    Much slower in browsing

    I terms of time to load a page? Scrolling performance?

    Font is too small even on large setting

    What device do you have?

    Image quality doesn't change

    True, that is a dead setting right now.

    about:config not opening.

    True, and it won't open for now. Settings are being redesigned.
