Opera is a solid desktop browser, but it’s also had a mobile browser for ages. And in that long time span, the app has garnered millions of users as well as useful updates to keep it afloat.

However, Opera has added a number of features that have flown under the radar of most users sights. Here are several such Opera mobile features you might not know about.

Desktop - Counterpart - Opera - App - Data

Like its desktop counterpart, the Opera app has a nifty data saver mode known as Opera Turbo. Once enabled, it channels your traffic through Opera’s servers to save data and speed up browsing. It looks for webpage elements which can be compressed, such as images. It trims down what it can and sends the resulting data back to your phone.

The option to enable it is in the settings as Data Savings. Tapping it will take you to a dashboard where you can view how much of your data Opera has managed to preserve. You can even manually select the quality of the rendered pictures.

Opera - Feature - Ability - Links - Webpage

Another handy and relatively unknown Opera feature is its ability to save links for later. You can download any webpage simply by tapping the Offline Pages item located inside the three-dot menu beside the address bar.

Opera will instantly download the page for you. You can access it later from a second Offline Pages link available under the red Opera icon at the bottom-right corner. This is a great way to keep some pages for reading on your commute if you don’t want to download a separate app for that purpose.

Opera - Ships - Themes - Mode - Theme

Opera ships with three themes you can apply. Thankfully, one of them is a dark mode. The remaining two are mostly white, while the third theme features red accents. You can apply themes to Opera from the Appearance page in Settings.
