Opera Software After the release of the desktop version of the new Opera - based on Chrome and the WebKit-fork Blink - it has now made its way to Android. It's available free of charge in the Play Store for both tablets and smartphones.

It feels like a clone of chrome in an opera skin without the benefits of using opera. Memory is way up, rendering times are horrendous on slow bandith (where we used to have opera turbo) and also there is something really wrong with opera rss and opera mail as i can not either find them or when i do they harly work if at all.
FF as osnews pointed out is turning out to be the best choice is already installed but to be honest, i am a creature of habit and i will probably use opera but downgrade to latest presto.
Luddite, perhaps... But this time it is well founded in performande and rendering.

There is an Off-road mode which I believe is similar to Turbo. Last time I tried this, it was quicker than Chrome. I'll have to try it out again.

"It feels like a clone of Chrome" because it uses more memory? Wow.

Mail and RSS? Opera on mobile phones never had that built in!
