Opera Mobile is a "full" browser performing all rendering activities on your Android device. Opera Mini passes your requests through Opera's servers to render/scale/"tweak" for your device. Opera Mini tends to be faster. Opera Mobile tends to hit your device's resources harder. Security folk cringe about Opera Mini and your traffic going through 3rd party ...

Size: Opera Mobile is ~20MB, Opera Mini is barely 900KB. Rendering: Opera Mobile downloads HTML from web server and renders the website on your phone, Opera Mini downloads an optimized version (in Opera's Binary Markup Language/OBML) of the website from Opera's proxy. Opera Mobile is more resource hungry, on Opera Mini many of the rendering task is done on ...

From my experience: Opera Mini is faster, opera mobile is slow. However if you are too conscious about security use mobile instead.

I don't know of any way to physically combine the two fields. However, the most recent update (11.1) added the following: One field does it all You can now type both web addresses and search queries in your browser's address field. Or, if you prefer, you can still use the search field with your favorite search engines. So if you start ...

You shouldn't need to uninstall anything. You just need to clear the default. Go into your settings and the app manager. Find the default video player. (You'll probably have to change your view from "Downloaded" to "All" in order to find it. I expect it's called "Video" or similar.) In the settings for the app should be a button labeled "Clear defaults". ...

No. There is no auto off-road mode in Opera. My suggestion is that you keep both Opera for Android and Opera Mini on your device. When you're on mobile data, use Opera Mini. Else, use Opera for Android with off-road mode off.

My solution for SO uses an undocumented feature (an easy trick when there's no documentation whatsoever): longtouch the search bar, add it as a search engine, and then use Opera's own search bar for such sites. A trick you may like with SO is to do this multiple times, then manage search engines, click on one of the SO 'engines', and modify it so that you ...

I don't think this line of thinking would work. The Opera Mini experience is built on the premise of the client being able to connect to Opera's rendering server farms and having a web page that's optimised for mobile view being sent to your phone/device after being compressed in order to save data network costs. I don't think modifying your hosts file ...

How about if you do a dump of the filesystem before and after clearing the cache and compare what has changed? For example, browse something to generate some cache, copy the filesystem to directory before-clear, clear the cache and copy again to directory after-clear. After this run a diff on the directories, eg. diff -q before-clear after-clear > ...
