Opera Browser Beta adds night mode in latest update [APK Download]

Opera is one of the most popular alternatives to Google's own Chrome browser and with good reason. It blocks ads, saves data, and has an excellent reader mode. There's also Opera Mini for an even faster, lighter experience. Another reason for Opera's popularity is active development. Already this year, in a reaction to an increasing fear among users, a crypto-mining blocker was added to both versions.

The main mobile browser has a separate Play Store listing for its beta version, and a new update has just been released for it. There are two additions to note: a night mode and a private mode indicator.

Completely Redesigned Opera Browser Exits Beta, Now Available In The Play Store

Opera has been talking up its new browser entry into the Android world for a few months now, with a beta version hitting the scene back in March. That beta has now graduated into a final release, which just landed in the Play Store this morning. The overall appearance and functionality seems to be largely unchanged from the beta, so users who have been testing out the browser should feel right at home with the first stable offering (which is a completely new listing in the Play Store, not an update to the beta).
