Norwegian outfit Opera Software ASA has launched a new version of its popular Opera Mini browser for Android-powered devices. This version has two different data compression modes to help the users optimize their data usage depending on the network conditions.
Coming to the compression settings, the high compression mode is for surfing the web on 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi networks and it will compress the webpage without hampering with the page quality. The extreme compression mode will give a very high speed internet experience to the user by providing a scaled down version of the webpage. Compared to the high mode, the extreme mode is suitable for users that wish to surf the web with very little mobile data or to save more data balance.

Apart from the compression technology, this version also features a scalable interface with higher resolution, which offers better handling for downloading purpose and improved UI for bookmarks and saved pages.
