Google Chrome holds the title of being the most popular mobile browser in the world. However, the only reason why Google Chrome is so popular is simply because Google pre-installs it on all Android powered smartphones. Therefore, the massive user base of Google Chrome doesn’t actually represent just how good the mobile browser actually is. With that said, we highly recommend to anyone who is looking for an alternative to Google Chrome to give Opera Mini a try.
Just like Google Chrome, Opera Mini is also a mobile browser but there is a difference. Opera Mini has been designed for entry-level and mid-range smartphones. This means that Opera Mini doesn’t take up as many resources (RAM, CPU power) in order to run smoothly which makes it the perfect mobile browser for people who can’t afford to spend too much money on a handheld device.
What’s great about Opera Mini is the fact that even though this is a lightweight mobile browser, it still ships with a plethora of premium features. Opera Mini’s software has been optimized to lower the amount of mobile data a smartphone uses sand it can save up to 90% of mobile data. Not only that, but Opera Mini is also going to boost web browsing speeds even on slow networks because it uses a special compression mode.
New 38.1.2254.135803 APK
Opera Mini users should be happy to know that the developers of the mobile browser have just released a brand-new APK. This update sports the 38.1.2254.135804 build number and it introduces a bunch of “various stability and performance fixes”. To make things even better, the new APK update also introduces some software tweaks that help Opera Mini run better on Google’s latest Android 9.0 Pie operating system. Therefore, we advise all Opera Mini users to get the new update ASAP.
