Opera launched version 9 of its Mini browser for iOS today, bringing a Video Boost feature that cuts down on video load times by incorporating a compression technology. The browser has also been optimized for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Here's how the Video Boost feature works, according to Opera:
So, what exactly happens to the video data when it is optimized? When you select a video to watch, our servers take a quick peek at the video's resolution and quality. Video data that's too big is shrunk before it lands on your phone, lessening buffering time. All this happens in the blink of an eye.
Video boost can be enabled when Data Savings is set to Opera Turbo. Tap the O menu, then tap Savings Enabled, choose Opera Turbo, and toggle on Video Boost.
Along with video compression, the update brings new Speed Dial functionality that lets you create shortcuts for your favorite sites with ease.
