Mobile web browser that’s focused on privacy and data saving
Opera Browser is a handy Android port of the famous desktop browser by the same name; it aims to make browsing as fast as possible via caching and compression as well as preserve privacy, all while maintaining a superb user experience.
Opera may not be the best known browser, but it's been around for a long time, and their polished product showcases their development experience. It has modern tabs that are easy to use, and it gives the feeling of a full browser, rather than the skimpy performance we've come to accept from mainstream mobile browsers.
Opera Browser now offers a free service that debuted first on desktop browsers: free VPN. This is what sets this browser apart from all others. For any other browser, you need to purchase a separate VPN if you choose to use one. This VPN is completely free and doesn't have ads; it even supports multiple locations.
Finally, Opera Browser is great for users who want a full experience. It has a great user interface and has support for many advanced tweaks and settings that other browsers don't come close to offering. If you're looking for a minimalist setup with only the basic options, this app may feel a bit too advanced for your comfort. For some users, it may be worth the download just to have a free VPN whenever you need it.
