Lately, there has been quite a lot of debate recently referring to which browser may be the best to use on an iPhone. While some may point towards the default browser, Safari, there are others who tend to point towards other browsers including Chrome, Opera and a couple of more. Well, Opera will be in our spotlight today, as its new update has brought it quite a number of interesting features, but also the App of the Week award here, on Geeksays.
In its latest update (9.1), Opera Mini gets a big usability plus, mostly due to the fact that users can now go ahead and open links using the app while they are in different applications, which is great news. Until now, whenever someone wanted to open a link from a different app, iOS would automatically take them over to Safari, but thanks to the new great feature, this is no longer the case. Apart from this much needed feature, it is also worth stating that now content can be searched directly from the clipboard, while links can be opened from there as well, with just one tap!
Another great feature that has to be mentioned refers to the simple fact that users can now go ahead and easily share links and content from the context menu, which speeds things up a lot.
Leaving aside the features that have been added over to Opera Mini, it is also worth pointing out that the newest update has also brought it a couple of different fixes and improvements, some of which are also related to the overall stability of the app. People using Opera Mini on older devices will also go ahead and notice that there’s a significantly lower delay time in the app and that most of the lag has been eliminated.
By keeping in mind the features and fixes that have been highlighted until now, it is safe to say that Opera Mini is definitely heading towards the right track. I personally believe that with a couple of more improvements, that it has the potential to blow right through its competition and become the most used browser both on online devices thanks to its ability to save mobile data, but also on desktop computers from all around the world.
What do you personally think about Opera? Do you use it? If yes, what do you like most about the cool browser?
