Users with a tight data collection would be well advised to replace their default browser by Opera. The latest version of the Opera Mini browser compresses websites better, without compromising the rendering of the page.
Renewed Opera Mini browser
The Opera Mini browser was able to compress websites, so that less data was used. Since the latest version of the app there is a high compression mode added that is optimized for 3G and 4G and helps you to save even more data while browsing. This has no effect on how the page is displayed; only effect is that pages sometimes load slower.
The update for the mobile browser also brings an improved menu to save pages, a full screen view and a tabbed interface that scales better to higher resolutions. This means that Opera Mini browser is perfectly usable in high-end smartphones. Furthermore, the app includes a night mode for reading in bed, a customizable layout and you have the ability to set a different search engine.
Opera Max compresses YouTube and Netflix videos
The update for the Opera Mini browser comes shortly after that for Opera Max. This slightly more extensive browser recently introduced the ability to compress video from YouTube and Netflix without noticeable loss of quality. In addition, the buffer must move faster through the technique which uses Opera Max. Both browsers are available for free in Google Play and allows you private browsing, where your history is not stored locally.
