Opera Mini 11 for Android’s new compression mode

Today, we released Opera Mini 11 for Android. It has two modes. By default, it starts in Extreme-compression mode.

Opera’s work to reduce Chromium’s memory use

In his recent blogpost marking ten years of Opera Mini, PM Christian Uribe wrote: Our vision is still the same: get the web into the hands of everyone, regardless of their device. That vision is shared throughout Opera. The vast majority of the world isn’t using the latest greatest laptop or smartphone (for example, we know from the Google I/O 2015 keynote that over a quarter of new Android devices have only 512 MB of RAM) so one...
