Last week I posted a comment on the latest version update with the non off switchable newsfeed. Meanwhile I received an update to version 16 0 2 with stil the same lame annoying irritating datasucking newsfeed.
For more than 4 years opera mini was my main webbrowser to save mobile data. On my former phone, it saved up to 96% mobile data!!!! On my nee IPhone it saved up to 87 a 90 %. Since the latest updates Opera mini saves only up to 75 up to 80 %
Sounds stil like a lot but remember that the difference between 80% and 96% datasavings means that you use 4 times more data on 80 % than 96% datasavings!!
While on the road now surfing a few webpages charges up to 16 Mb data. This is way to much for my small databundle 250 mb a month. I never used more than 100 mb a month using WhatsApp, Opera mini and Google Maps. Most 70 mb a month. I could enless surf on Opera mini. Opera mini is now pretty useless for me while being on the road or at work.
I only use Opera mini now on WiFi anymore. On WiFi , its still an unbeatable browser compared to Puffin Dolphin etc, despite the lame newsfeeds.
Fortunatedly I found Textbrowser in the AppStore. A very simple app, capable of only downloading html files. It charges data in kb s! I can surf endless again while being on the road for 12 hours a day working 100 kms far from home. So I am quite happy again.
Opera: We did not ask for a newsapp sucking mobile data. Give us as loyal users the old mini app back with datasavings of up to 96% and no news or give us a highly tweakable betaversion......
