Opera Browser Beta for Android Now Up in Google Play

Opera Browser

This morning, you can download the brand new browser from Opera. Don’t worry, Opera Mini is still there, but this is the complete package based on a webkit rendering engine. It currently has a beta tag alongside, but so far, it seems to be packed with great features. With Opera, thanks to their server process, you will load pages quicker than other browsers and it also allows your to save music, videos, and other content thanks to their download manager. 

I know it might be hard to give up Chrome or even the stock browser, but try it out and let us know what you think.

  • Dain Laguna

    loved the look of the ui, especially the way it looks when switching between windows, but performance (on a nexus7 and evo lte) wasnt appreciably faster than chrome. like at all.

    i’ll keep her installed and see how stuff runs

  • Chris King

    Very nice,I like the off-road and news feed options

  • Bunklung

    No full screen support :(

  • uncle paul

    Everyone, this is no joke! Get this browser now! Holy crap!
    This is nothing like the old crappy opera browsers,,
    Both on the gnex and the nexus 10, this is the fastest, cleanest,most polished browser on android to date.

    I never got a tingly feeling in my loins over a browser, until I installed
    The new opera beta today, WOWZERS! On the gnex and on the nexus 10 its amazing!
    Still runs flash unlike chrome too.

    But the speed holy cow man, the fastest cleanest browser yet on android
    I HATED opera mini and opera mobile, yuck,but this new beta you gotta try it,’

  • Diablo81588

    So much better than chrome. The last update made chrome worthless. Loving it so far.

    dolphin is best for one reason: LastPass!

  • JBartcaps

    Bye bye Chrome, this is really smooth and fast for me

    Ok cute girl on snowy boat, I’ll give Opera Browser a try; but don’t think I won’t miss Chrome while we are together.

  • Big_EZ

    This has the most potential so far to convert Dolphin users, but there’s still a few features needed before I give up Dolphin. Open links in new tabs is an absolute must for me.

  • enigmaco

    I guess I will give this a go, but probably won’t be deleting Chrome!

    • huskerhog

      Go Huskers!

      • Steen Kendle

        Im from the Good Life state too. But not a Husker fan

        • Mason Lammers

          We all have our shortcomings in life… I am sure you have a long life ahead of you to covert to a Husker! GBR

      • Mason Lammers

        GBR! I am sad it was voted down twice, but none the less we all bleed red.

      • socalrailroader

        Go Idaho State Bengals!

    • Jon Lambert

      what? another nebraskan on droid-life maybe?

      • ßen Murphy

        I went to Chadron State.

          UNK

      • Tony K

        Fellow Husker here!

      • Mason Lammers

        A number of things I propose. One, we convert Kellen, Tim, Eric, Ron and the rest of the DL crew to Husker Fans (may be a long shot)… but would make them even greater Android enthusiasts. Then we somehow need a DL Husker Fan Group created, and I am thinking we will need shirts. Finally, a shout out on the DL Show to all the Husker fans. A boy can dream, can’t he? GBR

        • huskerhog

          I’d like to see someone come up with a decent Husker app.

        • huskerhog

          There is a mailing list call The Husker List managed by Mike Nolan in Lincoln. In its early days we had shirts that read. “Netsurfers for Nebraska” This was back in 1995 or 1996. I still have the shirt.

      The last Chrome update really screwed some things up, IMO. I’ve been playing with Opera for a bit and I think I’m ready to switch. I will miss all of the syncing options, though.
