Opera Mini 8 beta 2 for Windows Phone

  • Hi everyone,

    I'm glad to announce that today we had released Opera Mini 8.0.2.15 to Windows Phone store.

    Here's the changelog:

    • [WP-220] Saved pages
    • [WP-354] TabUI: change plus icon

    • [WP-687] Pushed content
    • [WP-750] Edit speed dial dialog's buttons are hidden under the keyboard.
    • [WP-758] Downloading - we should be able to see size of the file
    • [WP-761] DB can be easily broken.
    • [WP-764] incorrect colors on download failed dialog
    • [WP-768] OOM issues
    • [WP-772] Missing EULA
    • [WP-776] Image quality setting is not saved.
    • [WP-787] Swipe navigation - back while loading page causes dead state.
    • [WP-795] Address bar suggestions - wrong order and others
    • [WP-804] Very top image on some pages is very low quality
    • [WP-844] Full screen mode requested
    • [WP-853] Change addressbar keyboard to Url keyboard
    • [WP-862] Most Facebook images can't be opened
    • [WP-873] Back button does an unnecessary navigation back when a dialog is present

    • [WP-917] Font calculation crashes opera

    As you can see there is a lot of new stuff to try out. Yes, saved pages are back! Memory handling was greatly improved and Opera is now streched over system bar to give you that few extra pixels of browsing area.

    Still, please remember this is a BETA, we're still trying things out to make this browser the best it can be. And we truly appreciate your comments and reports. So, please leave them here or report via 'report issue' option in settings.

    Have a nice day!

    1. New beta is very slow in displaying pages.
    2. Not able to save or hearing to streaming mp3.
      example: http://www.radio1.be/programmas/de-ochtend/huisarts-wil-minder-op-huisbezoek-gaan
      When I click on this link I receive the message : ' do you want to open or save xxx.mp3 ? xxx.mp3 will be saved to Music. When I tap save or open . I receive answer: xxx.mp3 download failure. Nothing is saved.

    When I use IE it's much faster in showing pages and it starts playing the sound file automatically.

  • Dear sir
    would say new beta version is bettter then 2nd beta but now we would be grateful that book mark sycronisation is released and we are able to use our book marks and also full view mode is still not available so pl update us how to enable that

    1. we need book mark sycronisation so we are able to give bettter bugs update

    2. we would like to also know when we will get book mark sycronisation and other feature in beta coming version??

  • open or save image both option download the image.. actually mini used to open that image in the same tab as we browse.

    font size need to be increased for medium and lage options..

    Tamil font doesn't display properly it shows only half of the words..

  • Very pleased with OM performance on Lumia 530. Good job 🙂

    Only thing Im missing (or can't find) is a way to completely turn off images.

    Please add this, I use OM to save data bandwidth when not on wifi and really need option to turn off images completely.

  • My feedback:

    I wished Opera used one unified UI over all systems but it would clash with the OS design language, so that's a no go.
    The new Bottom row of icons is too big, it's good for usability but it gets in the way of browsing space.
    Missing features: It's still in beta so keeping my fingers crossed.
    Please add night reading mode, like the one in Opera mini beta on android or like uc browser.
    Also the address bar - would be nice if the disappear when you scroll down and appear again when scrolling up like in chrome in android.
    Tab switch view: Can you give us options like the one on android?
    Stability: <thumbs up> really stable, I remember the first versions that crashed on start up but this one is usable now.

  • The new beta 2 is simply not adequate when visiting pages with a lot of text, like an e-mail, or made of more than one column. The fonts get so tiny that they are unreadable with phones equipped with screens not as big as a tablet one.
    In such cases the landscape mode was very useful.
    Removing it is the baddest idea you could have.
    So, despite your wish, I am having very bad days since I installed beta2, that is presented like a usual upgrade when it is a completely different app, so much worse than beta 1. The latter had its problems but at least it was usable and made Windows Phones usable for the most important function that makes a phone smart: internet navigation.
    I am trying to recover Opera Mini Beta 1 but it seems impossible.
    So, my Lumia 630 is now unusable for internet.

    Please let users be able to make their choice between Beta 1 and Beta 2, otherwise you could loose the most part of the ones who are WP owners.

  • Opera Mini V8.0.2.15 on HTC 8X Windows Phone 8.1

    On WiFi, pages either take a very long time (60 seconds plus) to render, or throw a timeout error. Using carrier data, this does not happen, they load about as fast as I would expect.

    Please make this browser work, mobile IE is a pile of cack.

  • Just wondering, is it possible to have a full browser like Opera browser for Android on Windows Phone?

  • what is the problem with Microsoft. com site? why doesn't it open in opera mini? every time i try to open any webpage it says client side offered to save a picture! please update opera for windows phone asap it has several other bugs.

  • I can't find an option to sync my bookmarks thru Opera Link, Please help..

  • Enable sync please !!

  • displays too much small size text even settings is large... So kindly update WP version also in terms of font display...
