Android users now enjoy a new version of Opera Mini browser

Android users globally now enjoy a new version of the Opera Mini Mobile browser which comes with redesigned interface, ITRealms can authoritatively report.
The upgraded version of Opera Mini for Android coincides with the announcement of Opera’s high growth targets for the Android platform on Tuesday, April 14, 2015,ITRealms gathered.
The chief executive officer (CEO) of Opera Software, Lars Boilesen confirmed this to  ITRealms.
 “We aim to reach 275 million users on the Android platform by 2017, more than doubling today's user base of 130 million. This growth will further cement Opera's position as a dominant browser in fast-growing, emerging economies,” Boilesen said.

Android had over 81 per cent market share among smartphones operating systems in 2014, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC), the global market intelligence firm.

The new user interface, ITRealms learnt comes in the latest Opera Mini with some features including a simplified menu, overhauled speed dial, a private-browsing mode and options to customize the browser layout for more thumb-friendly surfing.

Also, the new Opera mini has a scalable interface with higher resolution for tablets and large phones, updates to discover news feed which provides more latest content across the web as well as a data counter to show daily progress on data savings, helping users keep data costs under control.

ITRealms also discovered that like previous Opera Mini versions, the Opera Mini 8 compresses webpages to as little as 10 per cent of their original size. This decrease in data traffic means users could get to their content faster, and could extend their data plans.
