Norwegian software giant Opera has made available for download a new flavor of their Opera Mini browser for device running under Google's Android operating system.
The new Opera Mini 6.5 browser was designed to offer users the possibility to stay on top of all data they are eating, and also the amount of data they save using the browser.
The new version of Opera Mini arrives on devices with a dedicated page accessible from the help menu, which will provide users with info on all the data they are spending and saving overall or for a specific period of time.
“The number of megabytes saved while using the Opera Mini browser
can directly translate into money saved if you are roaming or on a pay-as-you-go plan for data traffic,” the software giant explains.
Users who do not have unlimited data plans will certainly find the new feature a very appealing one, especially since it will enable them to keep data usage in the desired limits.
The release notes for the new Opera Mini
6.5 browser for Android include:
- Added Data Usage view
- Implemented decoding of WebP images received from Opera Mini servers
- Implemented adding bookmarks to Home Screen
- Implemented import of system bookmarks
- Reintroduced Protocol setting

For those not in the know, we should note that Opera Mini comes with a special compression technology that enables it to reduce the size of webpages by up to 90 percent before sending them to the user's mobile device.
The mobile browser is already available for a number of over 3,000 devices out there, and is compatible with various mobile operating systems
, as well as with thousands of feature phone models.
