One of the most preferred Mobile browsers in the world, Opera Mini for Android has got updated and with Opera for Android 7.5 it has got a few new touches, including a socially focused Smart Page. The Smart Page includes a social tab, a news section, and a selection of links curated based on your location. The social tab will bring updates from Twitter and Facebook into an at-a-glance interface.
“This is a real time saver,” said Opera CEO Lars Boilesen in a statement on the news. “There are just too many social networks, and I’m a busy man. Now, thanks to the Smart Page, I can get all the updates at a glance, even from my favorite Danish newspapers.”
The new version of the browser keeps current features such as Speed Dial, which stores shortcuts and displays them in new tabs.
On the technical side, the mobile browser compresses data to compensate for congested carrier networks and limited data plans. In fact, Opera is so confident about this particular feature, it’s claiming it can save users up to 90 percent of data charges on a pay-per-megabyte data plan.
Those interested, can download the latest version of Opera Mini now free of charge.
