  • Opera Mini 9 has been tweaked for iOS, with support for large resolutions and a special data compression feature, that’s also expected to come to Android soon. The browser includes the Rocket Optimizer technology, that reached Opera after their purchase of Skyfire.

    Skyfire is a video and data compression company that was bought by Opera in 2013. Using their tech, the optimizer is able to re-compress video in a more compact form factor. This is an advantage for people on a tight data plan or slow connection. The compression services that Opera uses were actually measured in action, managing to cut the Opera Mini data usage from 17.5 petabytes of Web page data to 4.7 petabytes in September.

    That went through 270 million mobile browser users. The new feature offered in Opera Mini 9 is called vide boost and it enables faster loading of videos without extra data usage. This is available when users turn on video optimization in Opera Turbo mode. The fresh update of Opera Mini 9 also brings new options for editing speed dial shortcuts, a new data savings gauge and a Mini Mode, that’s based on a remote Opera server to process web pages.
