Browse the web with Opera for iPhone

The Opera browser for iPhone is designed to help you do more online while using less data. Its minimalist user interface is user-friendly and the technology behind the Opera browser makes loading pages on your phone much faster. It's one of the slickest browsers for iPhone available right now. It has a leaner design and interface than other major players like Chrome or Firefox

Opera already has two iPhone browsers, Opera Mobile and Opera Mini, which are exactly the same - except Mini reroutes traffic through Opera servers to compress data.

This newer Opera browser app is a completely redesigned version. While it retains many of the features of Opera Mobile and Opera Mini, the Opera browser looks more modern and adds some new features.

Features of Opera browser

Like Opera Mini, Opera browser offers a Speed Dial feature, which appears when you launch the app. Here you can place shortcuts to your favorite sites for one-click access. Unfortunately, this is the only way to save favorites in Opera browser, and you can't add bookmarks by starring pages like you can with the older Opera browsers.

Slide across to the right from the Speed Dial and you'll access the Discover section. This offers a selection of latest web content from a variety of sources. You can customize this content based on what country you're in and what subjects you're interested in (food, health, sports, technology, etc.)

One of the most important features of the Opera browser is its Off-Road mode. When this is turned on it all of the sites you visit will be compressed to make them faster to load (using the same technology as Opera Mini). This is great if you're using 2G networks or if you want to save on your data plan.

Other features of Opera browser include:

  • Sleek new look
  • Block Ads
  • Pin to your home screem
  • Save Data
  • Ability to save pages for offline viewing
  • Private Safe Browsing

What's it like to navigate with?

Using the Speed Dial in Opera browser feels very much like the iOS experience. Shortcuts take the form of icons, which you can pick up and drag around. Like iOS you can create folders out of different web page links by dragging icons on top of each other.

Accessing your browser history with the Opera browser is simpler than it is in most other Android browsers. Slide to the left from the Speed Dial on the front page and you'll see all your recently visited sites listed in a very clear way.

The iPhone Opera browser allows you to bring up a context menu simply by long-clicking on an item. If it's a link it will give you options for how you want to open it, and if it's an image you'll get the option to save it to your device.

The tabbed browsing experience in the Opera browser is slicker and easier than it is in Opera Mini and Opera Mobile. The panel is larger, meaning you can see more of each page in the preview thumbnail and swiping through the open tabs is smoother. There's a handy drop-down menu next to the tabs for opening a private tab or closing all tabs.

High speed, low cost

Loading pages using the Opera browser can be very quick, especially in Off Road mode. Although you shouldn't be waiting for pages to load for too long, the inclusion of a progress bar would've been nice for cases where lots of data needs to be downloaded first.

Opera browser users the same WebKit rendering engine used by Safari on iOS and by Google Chrome. It supports web standards very well and during our tests we experienced no problems with pages not displaying properly.

It's a shame that Opera browser doesn't support Flash, or at the very least, Flash Video. If you're a big fan of Flash content you'd be better off with a browser such as Skyfire or Puffin Browser. Check out our post about how to play Flash on Android devices for more.

AI Technology Revolutionizes Opera Browser Experience

Opera's latest update now incorporates AI-powered chatbots, ChatGPT and ChatSonic, into its desktop browsers, Opera and Opera GX. This innovation follows Microsoft's GPT-4 chatbot integration into its Edge browser. Available for early access on all desktop platforms, these cutting-edge tools provide users with a modern, interactive browsing experience.

AI Prompts Elevate User Interaction in Opera Browser

The new update also introduces AI prompts, allowing users to generate these prompts by either highlighting text on a website or typing it in. These AI prompts can efficiently summarize articles, compose engaging social media posts, or even assist in idea generation. To enable this feature, users can simply activate "AI prompts" in the settings menu.

ChatSonic Brings Text-to-Image Generation to Opera Browser

Alongside the text-based capabilities of ChatGPT, Opera's ChatSonic bot, which utilizes GPT-4, enables users to generate images from text inputs. This groundbreaking feature significantly enhances the browsing experience by providing a visually engaging and immersive way to interact with web content.

Opera's Dedication to AI Integration Across Platforms

Opera's product director, Joanna Czajka, emphasizes that AI-generated content is transforming web browsing. The company is steadfast in its commitment to expanding its AI program across browser, news, and gaming products by developing innovative solutions and collaborating with new and existing partners. Opera plans to introduce more AI-powered features in the future, relying on their proprietary GPT model.

The Growing Trend of AI-powered Tools in Web Browsers

As generative AI technology gains traction, more browsers are expected to integrate AI-powered tools into their platforms. Brave, for instance, has already launched summarization features in its search engine and is currently exploring other AI-focused features for its browser. This trend signifies a paradigm shift in the way users interact with and experience the internet through browsers.

The verdict

Opera browser is a smart, user friendly browser that can load web content quickly. 

Changes in Opera for Android include the following improvements:

- Chromium 63
