    • Eleanor Goodman - February 3, 2017

      "Opera mini is a great alternative to chrome. Since both browsers are from Google, there really isn't much difference. The one thing I do not like about opera is how everything that is usually in a task bar, is hidden in chrome. But the running rate and everything that is does matches chrome and all the others browsers. Good choice."

      "I was looking for a browser which could help with browsing with good UI but without using too much data from my plan. I found Opera Mini to fit what I was looking for. I like that it is fast and lets me download from facebook easily too."

      "This is one solid browser. I'm a diehard Chrome fanboy, and this has swayed me some. Lightweight and extremely quick, this can help when I'm trying to get a website to load but my signal is poor."

    • Karla Gomez-Lee - January 14, 2017

      "My son recommend this app for me because I have an older Android and sometimes it just takes forever to download something. I guess he was tired of me calling him to ask why my phone was so slow, was I doing something wrong. He was here this weekend, downloaded the app for me and I could not be happier. It is so much faster than it was, I couldn't be happier."

      "Now I'm not a huge seeker of alternative browsers kind of guy but I can actually see why you would want to on mobile. Mobile browsers can be clunky or slow and this one seems like it is a good option to try out to see how well it works on your device compared to chrome."

    • Lloyd Sharp - February 11, 2017

      "I was looking for a quick browser for my android device, so I gave the Puffin browser a chance from the Google Play store. This app is super quick - the internet really flies on it. I like the clean interface and ease of use. I will definitely keep using this going forward."

      "Android browser is too slow and bloated. Chrome dumps memory like crazy. Firefox just loads too slow for me. Then I found Opera Mini, which has been a great browser for my needs. I don't have a huge data plan, so every megabyte saved is important, and Opera Mini does just that. It may not be the fanciest browser, but I just needed something to get me around the worldwide web. Thanks Opera!"

    • Wesley Kelley - February 16, 2017

      "The most annoying thing about using an Android phone is how slow the browser is. Friends that have iPhones never seem to have the problem of pages loading up quickly. I am glad that I found Opera Mini. It totally increased the speed at which web pages on my phone loaded up. You don't realize how seconds matter until you see a difference in speed."

      "I do a lot of web browsing at home and while on the go, and the worst part is how long it takes to load webpages on my phone. It seems fast, but I can always tell the difference between my phone and when on my computer. The Fastest Mini Browser, while still not what I would consider 'computer fast', has defintely been the closest out of all the different browsers I've tried on the app store."
