Opera Mini is a browser that I swear by on my Android mobile phone. That’s because I am always on the hunt for ways through which I can avoid using up too much data. It’s one of the pains of living in a digital world. There are so many costs that one has to bear with, including that of data. Not that Opera Mini enables me to make as many savings as I would have liked to make in that regard. However, it is still the best when it comes to saving data on Android phones. One way, I have discovered, of saving data on Opera Mini is by disabling the images. So, how do you disable images on the Opera Mini browsers?
Disabling images on Opera Mini?
To disable images on the Opera Mini browser, all that you need to do is the following;
- Open Opera Mini on you Android device.
- Click on the Opera button to the top right of your screen.
- Next, click on the Settings gear
- Scroll down and click on “Data Savings.”
- Under “Settings,” choose “Extreme.”
- Turn off images under “Data savings features.”
- Now you can go back to browsing.
What happens when you disable images in Opera Mini?
When you disable images on the Opera Mini browser, all the images will be stripped from the pages that load onto your computer. Your pages will appear funny, but this is something that you will get used to. However, some pages will refuse to load under the “Extreme,” data saving mode. One of the pages that I have encountered that exhibit this behavior is the Gmail page. When I have “Extreme” set, I am not able to load my Gmail. I then have to toggle back to “High,” as the mode for data savings. Also note that you are only able to turn off images while in the “Extreme,” mode. If you wish to make data savings while using the “High,” mode, you will have to choose to load low quality images.
