Includes refreshed user interface.
If you are rocking a phone with Android 2.3 or higher then here’s a neat gift for you: a new and improved version of Opera Mini.
And the main selling feature for this release? A redesigned user interface with the Android like native look and feel.
What if you are using a phone with Android 2.2 or older os build? Well, the good news is that you can still grab a classic Opera Mini from here. The bad news? It will no longer be updated.

After reviewing the desktop numbers, let’s go ahead and switch to the desktop.
March, 2015 Desktop Market Share: Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera – Up; Internet Explorer – Down
Another month, another report.
As Microsoft continues to work on the Project Spartan, Internet Explorer’s market share keeps sliding down, this time by 0.84 point, from 57.38% to 56.54%.
With one new and usable goodie.
Now here’s an update that many people should appreciate. Thanks to the community feedback and Opera’s desire to please its users, the latest developer preview build includes a feature, which makes its easier to switch between old and current tabs.
How is it called? A tab cycler. Basically, you can now cycle through the tabs with keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl + 1/2 for Windows and Linux and ⌘ + ⇧Shift + ←/→ for Mac). In addition to that, Recently Closed tabs will now appear in the same area with its own section as well as other devices tabs.
Appears to be incompatible with a lot of modern web pages.
From what sounds like an awesome update to all the Windows Phone users out there, it turned out to be quite a disappointment, at least for some of us.

Yesterday, Opera Software have announced its plans to show a new version of Opera Mini in the MWC 2015 conference for both Windows Phone and Android.
Well, while we wait for the official press renders and other gooes, guys at WMPU have managed to get their hands on a new Opera Mini build for Windows Phone, that is (finally) not frustrating to use.
According to Opera, it was redesigned from the ground up to alligh with Microsot‘s Metro UI, in addition to that, it is said to be fast and fluid, unlike the Beta version of Opera Mini, which is just awful.
If you’ve been using Opera Mini on Windows Mobile and now have downloaded the “latest” build on Windows Phone, then there shouldn’t be UI learning experience as it’s exactly the same as it has been five years ago.
Well, things could take a turn for the better as Opera will unveil two new builds for both Android and Windows Phone that are set to look more native to the OS itself.
