Opera, one of the world\u2019s major browser developers have launched a small, fast, and powerful browser. Dubbed Opera Mini 50, the version comes with unique features such as data compression technology, a download manager with offline file-sharing capabilities, and a built-in ad-blocker. The new version will allow its users a more personal and intuitive way to interact with the browser features they love the most. \u00a0\u201cSince the very first launch almost fifteen years ago, Opera Mini has provided people with a better browsing experience than what they get with the default browser on their smartphones. "Now with version 50, it was time for major upgrade to Opera Mini, with a completely redesigned user experience, where we make the most popular features easier to use,\u201d says Andrzej Czarnecki, Product Manager for Opera Mini.\u00a0 According to him this is the biggest upgrade for five years. The new version integrates a new and versatile status bar located at the top of the browser screen. The new status bar adds a touch personalization to the browser. With the new version, users are able to receive welcome messages during their daily browsing sessions with greetings and hints throughout the day when using the app. The status bar also keeps users updated on what\u2019s going around them. It shows notifications with information about the latest news and upcoming updates in the browser or events from partners. \u00a0\u201cWith Opera Mini 50, we are reinforcing the connection between the users and the features that they love in multiple touchpoints. "We\u2019ve introduced new styles, themes, and user experiences, to improve the access to the features users need while enjoying superior aesthetics.\u201d Data savings have always been important for the Opera Mini users and I this new version, the new status bar displays a data savings widget that comes pretty handy in situations where users want to keep control of their data consumption in a glimpse. \u00a0\u201cWe know that data compression in Opera Mini is widely used among our users. "Our designers have introduced the new data-savings widget on the status bar, to give users detailed information about their data consumption. "It tells them what they need to know about how much data they are saving without navigating through the settings of the browser.\u201d \u00a0Today, Opera Mini is by far the fastest and best data-saving browser available on digital app stores. This makes the browser particularly popular among users who want to save data or gain speed for a better browsing experience on limited or congested mobile networks. \u00a0Opera Mini offers its users the option to activate either high or extreme data savings mode. The extreme mode in Opera Mini is capable of saving on average an impressive 81 per cent of mobile data versus other browsers which are only capable of saving on average to nine percent of mobile data. This allows Opera Mini users to browse for nine times longer versus using other mobile browsers without data compression capabilities.
