Editors' Review

Opera Mini is a browser alternative for your iOS device that offers data-saving compression features that you can turn on and off as you see fit. These features are designed to help improve loading speeds when you're not on Wi-Fi while also keeping you from incurring data overage charges.


Mode options: When it comes to the type of page compression you like, you have some options with Opera Mini. For regular connections, the Opera Turbo is your best bet, because it maximizes both loading speed and data savings to provide a smooth overall performance. If you're on a particularly slow connection, the Opera Mini setting is a good option because, while it can cause some pages and images to load improperly, it offers a better operating speed than you'd otherwise get. And if your connection is good, just turn off all data-saving features for optimal speed and performance.

Clean interface: This app has a clean look and an intuitive interface. There are no surprises with this browser, and it's not hard to find all of your favorite features with a little poking around.


Text size: There is no way to adjust text size when using this app, which may be more of a problem for some users than others. But it would be a nice addition and a much better alternative to zooming in and scrolling or copy and pasting items into another program to read them.

Page display: As noted, Opera Mini can cause some pages and images to load improperly.

Bottom Line

If you're looking for an alternative to Safari or whatever browser you're currently using on your iOS device, this is a good one to try. It's completely free, and it offers the added benefit of data-saving options that can actually end up saving you money in the long term.
