Opera Mini 7 hits Google Play, still goes easy on the data


Opera has another update available for their data-friendly mobile browser ready for deployment. Opera Mini 7, which still aims to save on data usage and increase browsing speeds by reformatting and compressing web content, has the added benefit of virtually unlimited homescreen favorites. That’s a pretty nice increase from the nine users could store in older versions. Opera also improved on the browsers hardware acceleration, making site navigation even smoother. You can grab the latest version in the Google Play Store. The price remains free.

  1. what’s the different between mini 7 and mobile 12?? 

    1. Opera Mini does all the website rendering on a server and basically just displays the website to you.

      Opera Mobile does all the website rendering on the phone itself just as the stock browser would.

    2. Mini doesn’t display Flash or Java scripts and can compress websites by as much as 90%

      Mobile is for more “powerful” devices and has all the plugins but still has a turbo mode which compresses images and makes pages load quicker..

      1. for some reason, i cant comment on phandroid on opera mobile and mini. tried desktop and mobile mode. 

  2. One is worse than Chrome, and the other is much worse than Chrome.

    I kid, I kid, but seriously.

    1. desktop chrome beat all. but chrome beta… need  a lot more work.
