Better site management

Accessing your favorite  sites at the comfort of your finger tips is one of the great features that Opera for Android gives you. With Opera’s Speed Dial, you can categorize and organize your favorite sites to get to them faster. It’s so quick!

Tap the + entry and type in your favorite site. That’s it. To organize your favorite sites,  just drag and drop them. You can even stack them on top of each other to create groups.   


Save pages to read offline

Do you have limited data and love reading your favorite news portals? With Opera for Android you can read pages offline. Once you have saved your pages, you can switch off your mobile data and enjoy reading without worrying about your limited mobile data plan.

Force sites to give you a better view

61% of mobile web pages do not give you the option to zoom. Opera for Android lets you get around this by giving you the option to force the site to let you zoom, so you can get a better view.
