Opera's Various Android Web Browsers Reach 100 Million Worldwide Active Users

According to a press release from Opera software, the Norwegian company's Opera web browser has reached 100 million active users on Android. That includes web users who've installed Opera, Opera Mini, the data-saving Opera Max, and the outdated Opera Mobile Classic. India and China have the largest numbers of Opera Android users, with Indonesia, Russia, and Mexico also posting large gains. The company claims that its active users have doubled in a single year.

The Google Play Store doesn't provide exact download numbers (and it isn't available in mainland China anyway), but the total range for Opera's four browser options is probably between 100,000,000 and half a billion.

Latest Lastpass Update Fixes Broken Autofill In Chrome Beta

If you were a Lastpass Premium user before earlier today, you may have noticed something peculiar: the latest Chrome Beta update broke autofill. This was especially obnoxious if you used the feature frequently, but today we deliver good news: Lastpass fixed it.

Apparently the feature was killed in Chrome when Google patched a bug that allowed any app to open a web page and silently load JavaScript, which is potentially dangerous. While Lastpass' use here is legit, there's no way to differentiate the good from the bad. Looks like they found a way around that, however, as the feature is once again available.

Updated Google Maps-Style Navigation Card Now Rolling Out In Google Search

An increasing number of users have stumbled across a new navigation card when looking for directions using the Google Search app. Apparently the tech giant has decided to pull the switch that opens this feature up to a wider populace. The card resembles Google Maps: it provides a map with the trip drawn out, the option to select the desired mode of transportation, alternate routes to select from, and a giant blue start button for when it's time to get moving. You can click on any of the routes to see a list of directions without having to load up the Maps app.

[Updated: Partly Expired] Deal Alert: Get One And Half Years Of LastPass Premium For Free - Even For Existing Users

Update: The six-month link has now expired. As for the full year offer, well, some existing users are reporting that it isn't working for them either. That promotion is now aimed at new or potential users.

The majority of features that the LastPass password manager offers are available for free, but users still need to go premium for $12 a year to get the full package. That's not an exorbitant fee by any stretch, yet there's a way to put this off for up to a year and a half if you rather save yourself the money. Two links have hit the web offering LastPass Premium for free, with one providing a year of goodies while the other deals out six months.

Dolphin Browser Beta 11 Gets Yet Another UI Refresh And A Ton Of New Features, Including A Link Bubble Clone

Chrome is the go-to browser for most of the Android world, but those who need a little variety or customization hold the long-standing Dolphin in high regard. The latest beta for Dolphin Browser adds a completely revamped user interface (which the developers seem to do at least once a year now) and a goody basket full of new features. Easily the best among them is support for the official Dolphin extension OneTap, which essentially copies the background-loading app Link Bubble. Nice.

The beta is accessible on the Play Store after joining this Google+ community. (Note: there's also a newer official Dolphin community, but it looks like Beta 11 is going out to users in both.) A full list of additional features is available in that link, but the highlights include a new right-swipe sidebar and menu bar, cloud tab sync support, bookmark sorting, and 40 free browser themes.

Google Maps Navigation Goes Live In Panama

The Play Store is filled with navigation apps, but only one comes pre-installed on most Android devices. Google's resource isn't without its drawbacks, but it's a pretty solid enough option to satisfy many users out of the box. Of course, the service has to be available in your country before it's usable in any sense. For Panama, the time has come for people to give the app some hands-on time and decide for themselves.

We reached out to Android Police readers to see if anyone was able to fire up the app in the Central American nation. Here are the screens we received in response.

WeTransfer's New Android App Lets Users Send Files Up To 10GB For Free

Everything stored on computers takes up data (this is going somewhere, I promise). We humans, being the social creatures that we are, feel compelled to share things with others. This biological inclination didn't go away with our relatively new obsession with digital things, so we now find ourselves regularly wrestling with the issue of getting data that's stored on one of our devices onto someone else's. WeTransfer and its new Android app can help with that. It's far from the only one that can, but its forgiving file limit makes it a compelling option.
