Opera Mini 8 beta for Windows Phone

No back (or forward) buttons. I know, IE for WP doesn't have them either, but the usability of that approach is questionable IMO.
Back action is done by hardware back button. Forward can be achieved by swipe gesture.
Less data seems to be cached, so pressing the back button more frequently requires a slooow page reload. (And it does seem pages load more slowly. I don't have any way to measure this, but the developers certainly ought to.)
True, your observations are correct. This is connected to our memory usage while using more tabs, we're currently working on resolving this.
History and bookmarks don't display right away. The delay is long and irritating. There should at least be a "loading..." message. Instead, we're told "No history" or shown a blank screen.
No, there should be no lag
The app crashes more often than before. That's not surprising for a beta, but it's annoying. Version 7.x wasn't perfect either, but it was more stable.
Desribe me an use-case scenario and we'll look into that. We're fixing the most occuring crashes that are logged to our system, but sometimes we're hopeless with reproduction, as the bare stacktrace doesn't provide all the info that we need.
Genereally, the more details we get from you, the higher chance you will see it fixed in next release.

Sorry for comparing
But I have to
Android opera mini has better font support Tamil font displays properly in Android whereas wp Tamil font half of the words is missing.
Android mini has good size of text even at median size.
Android mini is much more faster in browsing.
Android mini has smooth scrolling.
WP mini was much better in previous versions at least in UI, STABILITY, FASTER BROWSING.
Again sorry for comparison but its with Android mini beta not even with a final version

Goood morning we need to really give stable version as the first beta version was much better then current one
infact the 6 months time should have been enough to give a very stable version but that has not happened
if u have given us all feature enabled in new version we would have reported the bugs in bettter way
i feel by disabling all feature which are essential for working of opera is damaging its bugs reporting
pl enable all feature and then ask us we will give u alot bugs but half way browser wont allow opera to develop fianl stable product we need satble browser and for that a full working browser is needed to make it more stable
i have not able to use new version ever since all feature were disable ????
when main opera browser for desktop pc is updated every week why opera mini for windows is taking 6 months??
this is big question the desktop browser is updated every week so why cant that speed be given to windows operamini to give windows phone a stable product I feel co is just loosing her precious time for not working on stable product how new may be platform sir u need to be fast on updates and with all working features to test us the browser

@navendukumar That's not the aim of beta, to be fully functional I mean. Good to know though that some folks still follow the White Rabbit into the hole.

if I give u car without engine and ask u to test and give me peroformance report
pl do it and give me I will oblige so eating half cooked food also gives stomach upset and health
so unless a working update is given in full working form stable product cant be developed
pl be very clear on this

Scrolling performance is quite poor on my 735.

Too slow to use it now. I was regularly using precious mini 7 beta version which was much more stable and fast.
Like opera mini7 and 8 both are available in android, please give us previous opera mini as a separate one in WP too.
Since 8 beta is not able to use it and there is no update for bugs like speed, scrolling, font size so that we could be able to use it. UI, downloads, bookmarks sync can be fixed later

First and foremost: kudos on making Opera Mini for windows phone happen! Most of the developers say WP is such a small platform it doesnt worth it to develop for. So congrats on your efforts so far I'm really glad to be able to use Opera on my phone after making the hard switch from my ancient symbian. (which had opera mobile as well as mini so I had a choice to use whichever I've wanted..)
Now the "but"(t)s:
I have a lowend lumia 635 1gb and a really small monthly data plan (100mb) after which my connection is capped to EDGE! Understandibly I'd like to utalize that small plan best as possible. :). More than that along the usual way I travel there are parts of the city there is absolutely no signal of any kind.
Here is what I did previously: I disabled image loading and downloaded the things I wanted to read along the way @home via wifi, saved the articles on the sd card. This way I only used data if I had something really interesting linked from the articles.
So after the long jibberish:
My most wanted features are:
- an easy way to copy-paste URL (it might be me being lame but I couldnt for the life of me copy a url to clipboard
- ability to turn off images completely
- save pages / bookmarks
Thanks for your work and dedication so far I hope you can improve Opera Mini 4 WP even more and take it to the next level! Have a nice day everyone!
