If you're still making use of a BlackBerry OS device and haven't upgraded to BlackBerry 10, Opera still has much love for you. Opera Mini 8 has now been released for BlackBerry OS smartphones and it brings plenty of new features to what is still one of the best browsers for BlackBerry OS. On top of a new look and feel to the app, you'll also find the following.
- Private browsing - Select private browsing if you want to be private.
- Night mode - Staying up late? Turn on night mode to dim your phone’s display. We’ve listened to your requests — now, you have a better way to browse at night. This is especially helpful for those with devices that don’t support automatic dimming.
- Data Savings - Opera Mini gives you a lot of data savings We call Opera Mini the “King of Compression”. Our browser can help you save up to 90% of your data usage. The data usage overview has also been given a facelift, with more details how we save you data.
If that's not enough Opera also made it easier to access tabs on devices with keyboards through some short code key presses while in the app. As always, if you're looking to get the app downloaded you can just visit the Opera Mini mobile site to get it downloaded. For some reason, the version hasn't yet been updated in BlackBerry World.
