Love the Desktop Browser


Opera is, as it has always been, a step ahead of the competition. With the incorporation of a free VPN and ad-blocker into the browser itself, it’s truly a fierce competitor. I mean, they were the creators of tabbed browsing and a speed dial homepage. (Yup that’s right - google stole the idea from them) When I first downloaded this browser app, it was amazing. Super fast, incredible reliant. However, I am sadly starting to have more a more issues with it, including a very annoying inability to type on many web pages on first try. This result in me having to refresh the page in order to type (like in a search bar or login) which is a hassle. The next problem I have is with the recommended pages. Sometimes there is inappropriate content on the home page, regardless of the fact that I NEVER Search for that kind of content (really Opera?) I fear the day when someone is looking over my shoulder and I open my Opera browser and BAM (inappropriate articles). I really hope they can fix this. Opera is usually my go to browser.

The homepage...

Internet Diesel

I don’t know who approved of this idea for the homepage or why, because it’s the antithesis to an adblock browser if I’m seeing any ads I haven’t whitelisted.
Endless amounts of news take up the majority of the space and squeezes the search engine, bookmarks and speed dial into tiny corners. When you open a new tab, it redirects to the homepage, once again hogging the screen.

If this can be changed in a future update, I’ll give Opera Mini the four stars I think it deserves. It’s really good as far as adblock browsers go and has a nice, minimalist design that looks pretty good even on my old phone. It’s not particularly buggy, and even has useful features for certain sites. I’m gonna keep using it for these reasons but the homepage really needs love.



Opera used to be the best browser alternative hands down. Now it’s atrocious. The only reason I’m giving it more than one star is because I appreciate being able to sync with my desktop browser (which I have no problems with, it’s just mobile that is garbage). I hate the newsfeed, as does everyone else apparently. Stupid headlines, websites I’ve never heard of, and thumbnail pictures with basically naked women which is great when I need to look something up at work. Thank god I can use the vpn without using the opera browser on my phone. This is absolute garbage.
