Even though some might say that Google Chrome is the world’s most popular browser, this is not necessarily the case. Yes, Google Chrome has the most downloads but this is only because Google is making the browser a “Default App” for all Android powered smartphones. This is why we are advising all smartphone users to search for alternatives because there are many other powerful browsers which can replace Google Chrome at any given time.
Opera Mini is one of the best browsers that people can download and install on their smartphones. This is a lightweight browser which means that it can run on all types of smartphones, including low-end devices that are not equipped with powerful hardware specs. In addition, the software of Opera Mini has been tweaked out to consume lesser mobile data than any other mobile browsers.
Opera Mini 41.0.2254.138643 Update
Since we are talking about Opera Mini, we need to mention that the mobile browser has recently been updated. The developers who are in charge of Opera Mini are constantly rolling out new updates that improve the performances of Opera Mini and also take care of annoying bugs that can cause the app to randomly crash at times.
Nonetheless, the latest update for Opera Mini sports the 41.0.2254.138643 build number and it comes in the form of APK. This is a special update format and it stands for “Android Package Kit”. The trick to accessing this type of updates is that all Opera Mini users are required to manually download and install them on their smartphones, but not before enabling the “Unknown Sources” option.
We know that most Opera Mini users are not that keen on having to manually download and install updates on their smartphones and this is why we want to announce that the update is eventually going to be rolled out via OTA (over the air) channels. Therefore, all Opera Mini users are going to receive all the software tweaks that the new update has to bring.
