Opera Mini Browser v8 Gets A Big Visual Overhaul, Private Tabs, High DPI Support, And More

Opera Mini has attracted millions of users for all sorts of reasons, but its appearance hasn't particularly been one of them. Frankly, the app has felt dated for years.

LG Announces Google Cast-Compatible Music Flow Wireless Speakers
