Opera Mini’s developers have added a night mode feature to the browser. At one point or the other we have read or heard that using your phone at night can be harmful to your eyes. This new feature has been added to ensure that you have a comfortable time using the browser at night. Night mode feature comes with a few options. Users can now select how dim they want the screen to be. There is also a “reduce eye strain” option that one can use to alter the light tone emitted into a more suitable one. To access the Night Mode Feature go to Settings and select Night Mode. From there select enable. From there you can go to the Reduce Eye Strain option and adjust the screen’s brightness.
The other feature introduced in this new version is that now the browser allows users to sync the open tabs and bookmarks that have already been stored in the Speed dial page. However for the synchronization to work one must have an Opera account and you must be logged in. The final feature that they have introduced is that now the page title is shown when you are viewing web pages in place of the address and search bar.
