Opera updates Android app with faster startup, video downloads
The latest version of Opera's mobile browser for Android ups the ante with a variety of enhancements and bug fixes.
Android users will find several new features and fixes in Opera's new mobile browser.
Available as of Tuesday through Google Play, version 15 of the Opera browser is powered by the Chromium 28 engine. As such, the app should offer a faster performance and does promise a quicker startup time right off the bat.
You can now download video files and play them directly in the browser. You can also set the location for any downloaded files. And you can open files within the browser from an external SD card.
Other features listed in the update notes include smoother tab animations and a new "open in private tab" context menu.
Fixing a few bugs, Opera improved the method for clearing cookies and resolved an issue that caused the app to be uninstalled from certain Samsung devices. The update also promises memory leak plugs and overall stability improvements.
