Opera has released its first update in 2016 for its Opera Mini browser on the Android platform and the highlight feature is added support for 13 Indian languages including Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Kashmiri, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu.
Sunil Kamath, vice president (South Asia & SouthEast Asia) at Opera Software said –
In India, more than 70% of the population does not use English as their primary language. Opera web browsers have always supported reading content in multiple languages. We believe the addition of 13 Indian languages to Opera Mini’s UI will further help lower barriers for people to come online for the first time,”
Christian Uribe, product manager for Opera Mini said –
“We are continuing our efforts to bring the internet to as many people as possible, not only by making it possible to access the internet on low-bandwidth networks with our compression technology, but also by making sure that our browser is easy for anyone to use and understand,”
The new browser comes with a QR-code reader and generator and an improved download manager. They also included a QR code generator (in Mini browser), so if you want to share a link with a friend nearby, you can create a QR code to any page yourself. (For download manager) we’ve made loads of improvements and tweaks lately to improve the stability and speed of downloads.”
