Opera for Android brings a completely new, elegant user interface built to the native specifications of the Android platform. The interface has been redesigned, making it more intuitive to use.
Opera for Android lets you discover a world of new content on your Android phone. Finding new and inspiring articles is just a swipe away on your home screen. Opera has selected relevant global and regional sources, giving you the hottest news about the things that interest you most.
Opera for Android integrates the compression technology from Opera Mini for faster browsing when conditions are rough. In case of a bad network or costly roaming areas, switch to Off-Road mode to keep on surfing smoothly for less.
Combined address and search bar
Opera has combined the URL and search fields into a single field for a more elegant look and more intuitive use.
Tabbed browsing makes it easier than ever to browse, open and sort all your open browser windows on your phone. It even offers private browsing, just like the Opera desktop browser.
With the easily accessible history mode, you can quickly return to that page you saw earlier today. Just swipe your finger to the right to access the content on the left of your home screen.
Save for later
This feature lets you download a complete webpage and read it later while offline. It's perfect for reading long articles on flights without Wi-Fi or for times when you just don't want to connect to the internet. Press the plus button on the left hand side of the address bar and you are good to go.
Customizable navigation bar
Do you like your navigation buttons at the top of the page or at the bottom? Go to Settings and select what feels most natural to you.
New, revamped Speed Dial
In the new Speed Dial, bookmarks are fused together with Speed Dial entries to provide a new experience. It's also now easier to group, organize and rename Speed Dial entries or gather them in folders with a tap of a finger.
