The company further claimed that numerous features in Opera Mini can help users save data.
First off, Opera Mini is 64% faster and uses 2 times less data than UC Browser in extreme-savings mode. According to the company, tests also show that users can load webpages 72% faster with Opera Mini’s extreme-savings mode as compared to Google Chrome and save 3.5 times more data as well.
Secondly, Opera Mini is faster because of its new built-in ad blocker. According to Opera , users can save up to 14% additional data with their ad-blocker feature.
Then there’s the video boost feature, which reduces the size of video data used. When a video is optimized, it loads faster and users don’t experience any buffering.
