Opera for Android: Revamped Discover feature

Tags:

Today, we have a new version of Opera for Android with a lot of improvements and fixes. It’s free and ready for you to download now.

Have you been annoyed that your logins and passwords have not been properly stored? Sorry about that; but, rest assured that the problem is fixed now.

To uncover the biggest visual change in this version, you need to swipe to the right of your Speed Dial and take a look at the Discover feature. As always, it’s updated with the latest and greatest from your fields of interest. And now, you can simply and smoothly swipe through the article previews that the Discover feature has collected for you.

We are also happy to announce that a lot of rendering glitches are removed in this version, since we have reworked the rendering code.

Since the last version, we’ve:
- Revamped the Discover feature; swipe your way through the latest news.
- Fixed the password manager; it no longer fails to suggest saved passwords for many sites.
- Improved screen rendering; now, there’s less glitches when you bring up the keyboard or rotate the screen.
- Improved the page-loading spinner behavior; the combined search & address bar won’t pop up for in-page events anymore.
- Added a copy link context menu option.
- Updated Chromium to version 34.
- Implemented various stability and usability improvements.

Take the new Opera on your Android phone for a spin and let us know what you think!
You can get Opera from Google Play. You can also download at opera.com.

    Some things are still not working very well on my Xperia S: When I come back to a tab, it restarts, and when I open a link in the background it does not load until I open a tab.

    Sorry my english :)

    • Sidney Moraes

      I have the same thing on my Xperia S.

    • Rod Corkin

      Same old problem, and not just with Xperia. Until they fix this reloading tab issue I won’t be using this browser. A pity because otherwise I like it a lot.

    Have you any plans to add Ireland as a discover option? The feature looks interesting.

        I decided to wait patiently to Opera Link and Linux.

    The delicate beauty of flowers as an offering of sympathy is an age old practice that signifies compassion, thoughtfulness, and warmth. Sending flowers is always
    appropriate. A flower arrangement sent to the home of the surviving members is
    often considered an even more earnest and thoughtful gesture. When words can’t
    express all your feeling, this reverent arrangement communicates your heartfelt
    sympathies. Order Online Condolence Flowers to Bangalore and show your
    emotions.

    Opera is such a nice browser. But I use it on my tablet the most and don’t need nor want the tabs to disappear while scrolling. Please consider adding the option to just keep them in place.

    I’ve got an issue with Location services at Android 4.4.2 (Nexus 5). When I open Opera, go to maps.google.com and allow the location permission, nothing really happens and my current location isn’t determined. However the same works in Firefox Mobile just fine. Any ideas?

    There is no point commenting in this mobile blog, it is clear it is never read by Opera staff. They haven’t even removed the spam that has been sitting below for two days.
