Opera is an easy choice for me
Opera Mini has been my browser for some time. On my iPhone 4 with iOS6 Opera was a no brainer as a light weight browser, I enjoyed it's tab system and speed.
When I upgraded to an iPhone 6 with iOS8 I expected that Chrome/Safari/Mercury or an alternate browser would take it's place. This hasn't happened. Opera is still my go to for 90% of my browsing which takes place on reddit and various text heavy sites and forums.
My only complaint is that the app seems to crash on "heavy" pages such as news sites/editorials. In those cases I will have to manually close the app and open the link in another browser.
Although it would be nice if this could be fixed, for light text pages and reading, Opera Mini has yet to be beat. It WOULD be nice to have stability issues on certain types of pages fixed though, absolutely. For some people I could see this browser being unusable... but if you're mostly visiting forums and the like, this is a great and fast browser. Cheers Opera team.
My new favorite browser
After using this browser for a while now, Opera Mini has become the only browser I use. Saving webpages off-line ACTUALLY works, which is more than I can say for Safari. And Chrome doesn't even offer that feature. The data saving features are also certainly appreciated. And yet the user interface is very similar to that of Safari, so it's easy to understand
Less stable than previous version
Opera automatically refreshes itself a few minutes after inactivity, resulting in the closure of all of my tabs, which is extremely annoying. Chrome and Safari actually keep your tabs open if you close or leave the app.
Also, this version now locks up somewhat often, sometimes to the point where I can't even leave the app. Crashes also occur somewhat often, especially on iOS 8.1.3 devices.
Speaking of the next update, please add a feature in which users can select or change their default search engine. Even Safari has this feature!
If these issues are fixed and the requested feature is added, I may change my rating!
