Swype keyboard doesn't work right, doesn't autospace after every word. No more back and forward button on the bottom. Everything renders slower. Tap to zoom is broken. Im using opera mini right now just for sanity.
Try the chrome browser it's basically the same

I'm going to downgrade back, my main issues are stupid animation when opening the tab list, stop/refresh button removed from menu bar and now tiny at the top with the web address, a lot less settings no where near as many options, no exit button anymore.

Here is the old apk:

Yeah i looked it over and it is really not appealing to be honest. Ill be sticking to my old version. Downloaded the Opera mini as well just in case.
On a side note i sort of like how Firefox is progressing but it still a little resource hungry.

I am curious though if there is a way to see which Mobile browser is the best one.

Tested on Galaxy S cm 10.1. It sucks. Slow and resource hog. Built-in browser is superior. Chrome sucks too.

They released Opera 12.1 as a separate app if you want to keep it without the annoying update messages.

I wish airdroid would do the same.

It's slightly slower than Chrome on Android (which itself is slower than stock Android browser since it uses more resources lol). I'm sure Opera for Android will get better in future releases as this is their first WebKit version. The only thing I don't like it is the fact that there's no "swipe to kill" to get rid of the new windows, I have to tap the "x" button instead.

Other than that, there's nothing too special about Opera. I like the data compression thing but that's coming to Chrome soon (you can enable it in the Beta already).
