New version of Opera for Android that optimizes browsing when networks are saturated

A new version of the Opera browser has arrived on Android. It is a version that brings new functionalities, among which a more fluid navigation stands out, even in those moments when the network is saturated. This version of Opera offers users the possibility to configure the browser in Data Saver mode, thus limiting the use of bandwidth and reducing data consumption. This makes the pages load faster.

The monitoring of this function is carried out through an icon located on the left side of the address bar, so that the user can check data consumption in real time and decide whether to maintain or deactivate this navigation mode.

Another traditional functionality to highlight for Android is the use of its free and unlimited virtual private network, which is activated without the need for any subscription. Thanks to it, the user will be able to browse privately and more safely, protecting themselves from possible attacks.

Better user experience

Among the improved functions in the new version of Opera for Android highlights the user experience in the  ‘Offline Pages’ . Now you can save those websites or articles that arrive when it is not possible to dedicate the necessary time to them, to be able to enjoy them later in ‘Airplane mode’, and without the need to be consuming data. In addition, these files can be stored both in the internal memory of the device and on an external card – avoiding problems of lack of storage space and facilitating their exchange with other devices or even with other users.

The new version of the browser has also improved the ‘Autocomplete’ function so that, when typing in the user’s usual access pages, the moment a word matches one of their favorite sites, it is completed directly in the address bar itself. All you have to do is press the ‘Go’ button, without having to choose it from a drop-down list. Opera was already a pioneer in incorporating shortcuts to the most visited pages through ‘Speed ​​Dials’. However, analysis of user behavior has shown that, when they access their regular pages, the majority continue to type the address in the browser bar and that they tend to type more letters than necessary before selecting the URL. To simplify the process, the “Go” button has been incorporated that avoids having to select the option from a drop-down list.
