I've been using Opera Mini on Symbian for almost 10 years since the first time I got a Nokia 3660, and now on my Nokia 5530 and Nokia 808. It's the best browser you can get on Symbian and it works like a charm. But since 2012, there's no more update for Opera Mini Symbian version which is now halted at v7.1.32444. I know Symbian is 'dead' when Nokia lied to us, Symbian users, that they would continue to support Symbian until 2016. But let me tell you one clear thing, there are still so many Symbian users out there, including me. I know it's not much compare to Android, iOS, and Windows Phone users, but they are here, still using their beloved Symbian phones.
If Opera devs are still looking at Java and Blackberry version, where Blackberry OS is clearly dying out too, I'm starting to have a hope again that somehow Opera devs will take a look at Symbian version again and build an update to Opera Mini 8. I've tried running the java version of Opera Mini 8 on my Nokia 808, but it's clearly lagging behind the 2 years older Opera Mini 7 Symbian version. Clearly we need a Symbian version for better performance we usually have with Opera Mini 7.
Please, if anybody from Opera read this, please, PLEASE, reconsider to support and continue the update for Symbian version. We Symbian users are not asking for daily, weekly, or monthly updates, even one update every 3 or 4 months will do, as long as an update will come out eventually. Opera Mini is the most used browser on Symbian platform. The only competitor is UC Browser and they are still making updates for Symbian. I believe there are still millions of Symbian users out there and they are still having hope that someday somehow Opera will give an update to its Symbian version. Please don't let our hope die out, Opera. Please update Opera Mini for Symbian again
