  • Opera Mini

    Opera Mini enables you to take your full web experience to your phone.
    It has a lot of goodies from Small Opera iconOpera 's most capable version* like tab browsing, Speed Dial, dedicated download manager, etc.

    Moreover it offers faster mobile internet, since the pages are compressed before being sent to your phone.
    In this way you can:

    • Save time, because pages and tabs will load faster;
    • Save data and money, because Opera Mini uses up to 90% less data from your prepaid data plan than other web browsers.
    • In Android and Windows Phone Opera Mini doesn't run the engine locally on the device so it may compromise page's quality due to the compression. In iOS the user can select to disable the compression or use a less extreme compression called Turbo to run the more complete engine compatible with more sites.
