”To grow our Android user-base from 145 million to 275 million users by 2017, we are dedicated to introducing features that give a superior user experience. The strong lineup of features and with the introduction of the new and fresh Opera logo, is a milestone in our aggressive growth path in the Android market,” says Lars Boilesen, CEO of Opera.
Opera browser for Android with video compression and web apps
People love watching video on their mobiles and tablets. Unfortunately, this can eat up a data plan quickly, as stalled videos waste time and create frustration. From now on, users will see less of the dreaded video-buffering wheel, as Opera browser for Android is coming to the rescue with video compression.
We’re also very excited about installable web apps, as it bridges the gap between native and web apps in an elegant way. When a user clicks “Add to Home Screen” after loading a site in Opera, a shortcut to a site is placed on the home screen of their device, allowing for an app-like experience in the web browser.
Opera Mini for Android with better downloads and improved tab switching
In the previous version of Opera Mini for Android, we launched a better download manager, and we continue to improve that. Now, we introduce a better notification feature, so you will be notified when your files are finished downloading.
If you are one of those people who use a lot of tabs, we have good news for you. Now, you can open a new tab while you’re reading the page you are on. It will open in the background with the option to quickly switch between them, allowing you to navigate across multiple sites.
The new Opera ”O” available for 200 million users
Last week, we updated our desktop browser, and now that the Android products are out with the new logo, our new brand identity is available for well over 200 million users globally.
