How to get the Opera web browser and Opera Mobile store on your classic Nokia device


Opera apps on Nokia classics

Late last year, we learned that Microsoft had signed a deal with Norwegian software maker Opera, to help manage their Nokia device portfolio. While Microsoft will continue to maintain and manage the Lumia lineup, Opera would replace the Nokia Store and Nokia Xpress Browser with their own solutions on older Nokia handsets.

Nokia Store will be replaced with Opera Mobile Store on certain Nokia devices

Since Microsoft purchased Nokia's Devices and Services division earlier this year, they have been removing Nokia's branding, from all the product lines that they now own. As part of this transition, Microsoft has come to an agreement with Opera, to replace the Nokia Store on some of its Nokia devices with the Opera Mobile Store.

Opera Mini beta now available for Windows Phone


Opera Mini beta now available for Windows PhoneBack in August 2013, Opera hinted that they were working on Opera Mini for Windows Phone.

Opera mini 8 released for Java-running phones and BlackBerry OS


OperaOpera mini, the version of the browser for older that run Java-based platforms, including the classic BlackBerry OS has been updated to version 8. There's a new look and a new set of features is available.

The updated version has a new Speed Dial start page with redesigned tiles, as well as the addition of Night mode, improved data savings reports, and Private mode.

Opera mini 8 offers the following key features and improvements
  • Night mode: Browsing the web on a bright mobile screen at night can feel a bit like looking into the sun. Opera Mini 8 includes a night mode that dims the effects of an ouch-that's-bright screen, using darker colors that are easy on your eyes. You can enable it in the Settings menu.
  • Improved savings reports: Need to keep track of how much you surf? The new and improved data-savings page lets you monitor and adjust how you save data, such as setting the quality of images, all in the same place — no detour into Settings needed. All your surfing is squeezed down to as little as 10% of its original size, so, if you are on a bad connection or paying for data as you go, Opera Mini 8 will keep you online longer.
  • Private mode: Need to lend your mobile to a friend for Facebook or Gmail checking? Opera Mini 8 now supports private tabs that don’t save information once the open tab is closed. That way, you can stay logged in on your main window, while your friend checks out his or her account in a private tab.
Opera Mini is free and available from Opera's mobile page.

Opera 20 is now available for download


Opera Software has released the final version 20 of their web browser for the Windows and Mac platforms. It’s the sixth major update since the browser was rebooted with the Chromium browser engine, and follows previous releases in offering evolutionary changes rather than revolutionary ones.

You can download the update by clicking the opera logo and selecting About, The update will initiate automatically and you will receive a notification when it is ready to  install. You can also download the update  using the following links:


Many of the new features in version 20 are improvements to the features first introduced in version 19. For example, the bookmarks bar has received some improvements now allowing users to bookmark new sites that dragged on to it from tabs and the Speed Dial itself.

Additionally the "Hardcore" mode, which can be accessed via Settings > Browser (tick "Show advanced settings") has also been improved. It’s been augmented in version 20 with an additional option, allowing users to switch to smaller Speed Dial thumbnails by unchecking the appropriate option under Start page. Mac users also gain a new advanced option to confirm Opera's exit via the [Cmd] + [Q] shortcut.

The URL bar badge has also been tweaked to improve security by warning users when a site’s security certificate is invalid by displaying a broken padlock, which Opera describes as a "proceed with caution" alert rather than a red warning.

Other improvements in Opera 20 include the promise of non-blurry screenshots when using Stash, performance improvements when loading themes, and inline installation of extensions, allowing users to install security vetted extensions hosted in Opera’s add-ons store directly from the parent website.

Opera for Android should also receive the update soon, with support for WebRTC, a new simpler search feature and greater customization options for the UI.

Opera 19 is now available for download


Opera Software has released the final version 19 of their web browser for the Windows and Mac platforms. It’s the fifth major update since the browser was rebooted with the Chromium browser engine, and brings a few new features and improvements.

One of the most important improvements has been found in Opera 19 is the bookmarks bar, which will give you one-click access to your favorite websites. Another great thing offered by Opera 19 is the possibility to set different browser wallpapers, so that its users can now right-click an image and hit the “Use image as theme” to change the default background.

According to the development team, the Bookmarks Bar “is a simple way of storing, accessing and modifying your bookmarks. For easy modification you can create bookmarks by dragging and dropping from tabs (windows only). Think of it like a quick access bar to get around fast to your favorite sites. Moreover, the full bookmarks API is also live now. Play with it and check it out.”

The developing team has guaranteed that a new version of Opera Next is currently in the works and should be released soon with more great features.

Opera Mini for Windows Phone maybe close to release


Opera Mini for Windows Phone maybe close to releaseThe Opera web browser was once a popular choice for Microsoft's mobile platform users back in the days of Windows Mobile.

However, it looks like Opera could be working on a version of  Opera Mini for Windows Phone.

Opera purchases Skyfire for $155 million in an attempt to improve their mobile browser


Opera has been having an eventful week. After announcing they would be transitioning to using Webkit on their browsers over Presta and that they had crossed 300 million monthly active users, they have announced that they are purchasing Skyfire Labs, the maker for the Skyfire browser. The acquisition is said to have cost $155 million and is likely in an attempt to improve Opera’s mobile browser experience.

Skyfire is well known for its ability to view Flash content on iOS and Android by processing the content in the cloud. The browser has been around before Adobe announces Flash for Android and has helped iOS users bypass their lack of Flash support. SkyFire is also known for its mobile video optimization and its Rocket Optimizer which is similar to Opera Turbo and can reduce the size of streaming video and media by up to 60% on your device.

While we won't likely see the SkyFire browser after the acquisition is completed, we will see the benefits of the technology make their way to the new versions of Opera Mobile and Opera Mini.

The acquisition is expected to be finalized on March 15, 2013. Opera will pay $50 million up front and and the deal could end up being worth as much as $155 million in cash and stock for Skyfire Labs over the next three years.

Opera Mobile and Opera Mini coming to Windows Phone 8


Opera for Windows PhoneOpera Mobile and Opera Mini have been popular choices for users back in the early days of smartphones. This is before the days of Safari on the iPhone, when pocket IE was barely usable. However the Opera browsers still remain a popular choice for several Android users, and even for users on the Symbian platform, where the stock web browser is still inferior.

Opera has remained a relevant player not only because of the more than decent primary browser, but also thanks to Opera Mini, which can make wonders when it comes to saving some precious megabytes from your data plan.

Opera's Vadim Makeev has recently said that Opera is interested in bringing its two mobile browsers, Opera Mobile and Opera Mini to Windows Phone 8. If you wonder what's the cause for Opera's sudden interest in Microsoft's upcoming platform, it's because the Windows Phone 8 SDK is going to allow developers to code their apps in C, which was not possible on WP7. And since this allows Opera to use a lot of generic code written in C, it should be a piece of cake for the company to port its products to Windows Phone 8. Here's the official statement:
Unfortunately, we do not comment on timing. I can say one thing, as soon as the ability to release Opera Mobile/Mini for Windows Phone (SDK in this case) is available, we will immediately do it. That is a full SDK for developing in C, for which we could use an existing generic code written for all platforms. Not with the current SDK for the Windows Phone platform. As soon as it appears, we are porting Opera Mobile/Mini.
Microsoft has done a great job with Internet Explorer on Windows Phone, so we are not certain how popular Opera can be on the platform. Still the fact that users have options along with Opera's unique features could be enough to help a few users swap over from Android or iOS to Windows Phone.
