-High Saving perform poorly.
a) If it gives error page, then for that period all the pages would do the same. I guess it is a server issue?
b) often times, with heavy/poorly coded sites the page will freeze, but only the page. Menu, tabs etc. works normally.
c) some sites with interactive layout have some issues. usually the image placement in screenshot, etc. a little off. (See one of Jakartanotebook.com product entry)
These problems exist in O18 for a long time, I hope by the time it reaches stable they will be fixed, cause from what i've read and seen so far it seems that O19beta has just aesthetic changes.
- for Opera for Android I don't see why it won't adopt the features from the mini if the team see fit. they are from one company, right?
- for turn off images in High Saving, it maybe possible with ad-block-esque approach. Who knows?
Opera has built its mobile base around Mini so Opera for Android comes at a second or... last place. Mini is updated with every WebView update immediately, while O for A sits at a chromium version of 50 while chrome beta is on 53. That shows a lot doesn't it?
About turning off images I'm not sure this works as it's currently "fake" in O for A, when you use extreme mode in Mini the browser switches to the presto engine which cuts from the client side a lot of stuff, it's not a matter of heavier compression, you can check in html5test.com for example how much is being disabled. We need a similar approach, from the client side.
Cookies are not the same for the same reason they use different engines and probably different servers. But what needs to be fixed is that Mini does not keep you logged in if you close and restart the browser in any mode a thing that works fine in O for A.
Mini is not actually updated with every webview.It is Opera for Android.
The difference can be highlighted loading twitter and different web apps based on google and other progressive web apps
and I just love the PGAs
the image off option is not fake...but in case of secure connections like Google and wikipedia or other shopping portals
the opera turbo proxy does not compress the data.
As you can see in many secure connections the old pestro engine does not work in case of Opera mini
So,actually Opera is more secure than mini if you want high privacy.
I prefer to use opera as default rather than mini because of its seamless browsing experience
Opera also supports serviceworker scripts which can work offline.If you look just at the core,Opera is much advanced than mini
