Today, we released a beta version of the new Opera for Android. We have a whole set of new and improved features we're excited about. In particular, we'd like you to try out and give your feedback on the following:
Tabs. Better than ever.
From a thumbnail view of tabs to private browsing, Tabs on Android is made for the way you browse the mobile web. It's also even easier to mark tabs as favorites, right in the address field.
Discover. Stay one step ahead.
Get news, the latest cool content and other suggestions with the Discover feature.
Off-Road Mode. All-conditions browsing.
Formerly known as Opera Turbo, Off-Road compresses web pages so you can stay online even when your connection slows down or you're outside your regular network . Off-Road Mode also saves you money on data.
Download Manager. Made better.
With the ability to start, pause, resume and rename files, you can download and keep the movies, music and other media files you want at your convenience.
Do you use Opera on a computer? Would you like to get more out of the time you spend online? Then you can take our first-ever survey of browsing habits.
We are doing this survey to find out three things:
What our users want to accomplish online
The obstacles to achieving those goals
How the browser itself can help our users to be both more productive and satisfied with the time they spend on the web
The survey has two parts: in the first, you'll identify your main objectives and issues around browsing. In the second part, you'll get a much more detailed picture of how you are spending your time online, by keeping a browsing diary. (You can use the web timer extension to make this part easier - it will keep track of your time for you.)
All the information you provide will only be used for the purposes of the survey. That means we won't sell it or pass it on to anyone else. We are only collecting it in an aggregated, anonymous form to help us make future versions of Opera a better tool for browsing.
We can't do it without you! So even if you only have time to do the first part of the survey, it would be much appreciated.
If you've got a My Opera account, you know that there is always a lot going on. New photos, blog posts, conversations and of course new people are popping up all the time. You wouldn't want to miss out on any of that good stuff, would you?
With this new Speed Dial extension, you can be sure never miss a new friend request or My Opera mail again ! Click here (INSERT LINK) to install it for yourself.
By the way, did you know that My Opera is one of the oldest Speed Dials ever included in Opera?
