Norway : Opera Software gives its Opera Mini browser on iOS a complete makeover

June 27, 2014



Introducing Opera Mini 8 - the biggest update for the Opera Mini mobile browser on iPhone and iPad to date.

Available for free in the Apple App Store today, Opera Mini 8 will get you to anywhere on the web faster, cheaper and with a brand new native UI look for iOS 7.

Opera Mini 8 lets you choose from three different modes of exploring the vast world of the web: Opera Mini mode offers huge compression of web traffic, up to 90%, and data savings. In areas with poor coverage and tough network conditions Opera Mini saves both time and money. Opera Turbo mode saves slightly less data than Opera Mini mode, but offers better website compatibility, making it the ideal browsing mode for most users. Data savings off is a no-compression, straight-to-the-source option, that ensures maximum website compatibility.

You can set the different modes as you see fit, e.g., disabling compression on your workplace s high-speed Wi-Fi, using Opera Turbo with your regular data plan and Opera Mini when traveling abroad. Three options, all in a single web browser, all on your iOS device. Opera Mini has long been a must for people on the go, roaming to distant places of the world, and, with Opera Mini 8, it takes its place as the all-inclusive alternative web browser.

Beauty is way more than skin deep On the surface, Opera Mini 8 for iOS has gone through a radical redesign and now sports a fully iOS 7 (and higher) compatible flat design, using transparency to visualize layers. All design elements have been completely re-built from the ground up, to fit in with iOS styling and the familiar user friendliness of Opera s smartphone browsers. Don t like the default looks of Opera Mini 8? Just pick another of the sleek themes available to make it feel more yours.
