And Then There Is Opera Browser that Threatens the Competition With Its New Release…(Video)
As I’ve told you before, there was a time when Opera Browser was my only choice. And I was so stubborn about it that I ignored every other choice. That is even though Chrome was growing rapidly and using new technologies which Opera adopted (much) later on. Now things stand differently and I have different needs. And so do a lot of users. But Opera wants you to know it’s still in the game.
Coming to innovation Opera was the first to care about data usage. Learning from their mobile experience and having been the most viable option for the times when smartphones were – or better said weren’t – the browser still cares about it’s data compression tech more than anything. Advancing towards the new addition to the Android eco-system has solid offers in its hand. And one of these is WebRTC – allowing for video calls straight from the browser.
Opera for Android -main version went for webkit integration barely last year. From then on it rained improvements to it, now reaching version 33 as one of the features of the new round version figure 20. Then there are improvements to the search engine, HTML5 support and download engine. Thrown on top are the usual promises for speed and stability. Do I still care for Opera? Yes I do and the developers give me every reason to. Do You? If the answer is positive then jump over to the Store and get the latest release.
