Opera Mini, one of the fastest web browsers made for your iPhone and iPad, now has a built-in ad blocker. It also saves data, syncs your bookmarks and Speed Dials across devices, and gives you fast, easy access to your favorites.
Your Apple device is awesome. It keeps you connected to the people and content you love, wherever you go. But, you know what’s not awesome? Big, fat data bills. Also, ads. Bills and ads. Boo. What can you do? Install Opera Mini.
Opera Mini blocks ads and crunches down the size of the websites you visit. It compresses images, video and text, making sites lighter and faster. More cat videos and life hacks for you, less data on your monthly bill.
* Faster browsing - Choose from search results that appear as you type; quickly access previously visited pages.
* Block ads - Save your screen space for the content you want to see and speed up browsing.
* Data savings - Reduce mobile data usage by up to 90%.
* Unlimited tabs - Open and view as many tabs as you’d like.

Switching over after years of Chrome
I've been using Chrome for iOS ever since it came out and I was confident enough to say that it was the best mobile browser ever. It had everything that I wanted; desktop syncing, flash, etc.
I decided to give Opera a try and my, was I blown away. The data saving feature is an absolute must for me because I don't have unlimited data. The UI just feels a lot more cleaner and minimalistic (which some people prefer). Overall, I would give this app an 10/5 if I could.
Excellent data savings; one major issue
For data savings this is simply the best, which is why I give this app 3 stars..
HOWEVER, often times when I try to follow a link (especially if from a drop down menu) it highlights all possible links at once, in blue, them simply reloads the page. It makes navigating certain sites impossible - especially job boards or forums with drop down menus.
If this issue could be fixed Opera Mini could easily be a 5 star app! But this lack of functionality really prevents it from achieving its full potential
I love this browser. It's an absolute Godsend for throttled connections. The Opera Mini compression is great for reading news and basic web pages. When Mini doesn't render pages correctly, you can quickly switch to Opera Turbo which seems to work well 90% of the time. Or you can disable the feature completely.
If you are on a limited data plan or are being throttled, this is a must have.
