With more than 100 million installs and 3 million user reviews, Opera Mini remains a popular mobile browser for the Android platform. Now, it is also ready to gain a set of new features, in addition to the ones added by the latest update.

According to the official blog of the Opera Mobile team, "This year Opera Mini isn’t just about helping you access more of the web, but also enabling you to interact with more content while you browse." The most important features to arrive are these:

  • automatic scan for downloadable videos and music
  • new Facebook notification bar
  • saved pages compression
  • video boost support in Extreme mode
  • download manager UI improvements
  • various bug fixes and tweaks

The latest update for Opera Mini arrived on March 25, including social login for Sync with Opera, Facebook performance improvements, a new one-hand friendly video player, and more. There are also other new features in the pipeline, but Opera's big plans for the future will remain secret for the time being.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
